We've booked our flights to Zurich, then home from Vienna. Normally everything would be very well planned as thats half the fun of going,but it's been a bad year and all we know is that we need a holiday, so went ahead and booked not really knowing where we're going or what to do. I'd really appreciate any ideas.

We are headed to Austria to visit family, hence flying out of Vienna. DH has a slightly dodgy knee after recent surgeries so won't be able to do any hiking, skiing or even too much walking this time. I thought I would plan things that we had always wanted to do and also didn't entail a lot of walking. The Glacier and Bernina Express has been on the list for a long time. Two years ago we spent some time in Lugano and loved the relaxed pace of riding the ferries from village to village and also the busses and trains to places like Como etc DH says a colleague spent time at Lake Constance and loved it, an option maybe? Some other lake maybe? We could even head down to lake Garda after the Bernina Express, although we have touched on that before. We arrive in Zurich 26 August and want to spend about 10 to 12 days before heading to our son who lives close to Graz.

Just so you know that I would really like to be spending lots of time planning.... The background right now is that my father had a stroke and broke his hip and I have been caring for him in my home since his release from hospital and that's why I dont have the time and am needing so much help.

Although we have been to Switzerland more than once, we have never been to Zermatt, St.Moritz, the Matterhorn or any of this area. We loved going to the Jungfrau, schilthorn with lunch at Piz Gloria etc. so that is really the type of trip we are hoping for again.

We would truelly appreciate any advice and ideas.
Many thanks.
