Need suggestions for Switzerland/Austria/Germany

Jump to last reply

We will be taking our teenagers (16, 16, 18) to attend a leadership camp in Geneva in July of 2013. They will be spending a week at the camp and then joining us for an additional 5 days ending up in Munich where we will catch our flight home. While they are at camp we (my wife, my cousin and myself, all 40-ish)

What we have is really two trips in one, the first with three fit adults, the second with teenagers.

I'm looking for suggestions for both sides of this trip. Obviously since we are ending up in Munich at the end, we will visit parts of southern Germany.

If money wasn't much of an obstacle, where would you make your base(s) of operations without kids for seven days in Switzerland. Also, with the kids, can you make suggestions on an itinerary between Switzerland and Munich, with taking a side trip up through Austria a real possibility.

We have traveled to Europe many times before but have not been to this area at all. We are very comfortable with either renting a car or using the public transportation.

I know that what I've asked is a totally wide-open question with millions of variables, but I'd like to see what suggestions come from you folks who have been there before and what you'd do if you were me.
