Please help – Austria and Switzerland in 1 week?

Jump to last reply

We have time to take a trip from May 23-31. I originally considered to split the time and relax between Bruges and Salzburg, my travel partner would prefer to concentrate and Austria and Switzerland.

May 23 - entire travel day spent getting to Europe.
May 31 – could return from anywhere very late at night, can extend into June 1 if necessary.

The rest of the time… Our interests include:
1. Maybe a day in Vienna, to capture a bit of the city culture. We are not necessarily needing to see every museum and church, but just sort of take it all in.
2. A day or 2 in Salzburg. Mozart is my idol. Interested in the town, some music, some good food, again just local culture.
3. The rest of the time, the highlights of Switzerland. Actually, big cities aren't essential. We love to just experience some natural beauty, fondue or raclette, the sort of "typical" Swiss Alps or chalet experience.

Planning to travel by train, overnight if needed. We would prefer to have 1 base in Switzerland if possible. Since our time is so short.

Is this doable/reasonable, or just too tight? Thanks in advance for your input.

Also, a silly question… Is sauerkraut a common staple in these two countries? Can you eat it in pretty much any restaurant? Obviously a fan of sauerkraut here!
