Need help with itinerary for Switzerland, Germany or Austria

Jump to last reply

Family of 4 (two boys 12 and 10) are cooking the idea of a 2-week trip to central Europe in the summer. Tentative thoughts are: Switzerland, southern Germany and Austria.

My original plan is to visit Switzerland and Austria. After consulting the map, Geneva and Vienna are at the opposite end of the continent. For Switzerland, definitely Bern, Zurich, Bernese oberland. Not sure if it is wise to visit Geneva, since it is kinda out of the way. Same question for Vienna. If we rule out Geneva and Vienna, maybe we can include southern Germany: Munich, black forest, can probably include Salzburg.

Seek your expert opinion on what is the most efficient itinerary, i.e. not spending too much time on the road. We have not seen much of Europe, so it really does not matter which cities to visit, as long as it makes sense logistically. There is always the next Europe trip that will allow us to visit, say Geneva with Eastern France or Vienna with Hungary and Czech.

We won't rent cars, will mainly rely on trains while in Europe or maybe low cost regional flights.
