Swiss visit - Mürren for Berner Oberland and Chur? Sargans? for Engadin hub

Jump to last reply

I've decided on a week+ in Switzerland in late June before heading to a meeting in Vienna. 15 years ago my husband and I based in Wengen, Lugano, and Vevey. I definitely want to return to the BO area--I love mountains; it was so gorgeous but it snowed one day we were there, so no views that day. 30 years ago I visited Zurich, Luzern area, Interlaken, and Berne.

I will be traveling solo, enjoying train views, doing light hiking, looking at architecture.

My plan is arrive early a.m. on Tuesday at ZRH, catch trains to Mürren. Of course, weather dependent but hope to take light walks that afternoon/evening, Next day take trip to Schiltorn, then valley or over to Wengen, Mannlichen to Kleine Scheidigg (the walk we did in the snow before). Thursday do whatever I didn't do on Wednesday, then catch afternoon train to Engadin area.

Because my onward train trip will be to Austria, the connection will be in Sargans. The easiest hub would be Sargans, but is that a good choice over Chur? There is a Post Hotel in Sargans. I am mainly just looking for a place to conveniently drop my bag and sleep.

My plans in the area are for Friday and Saturday: one day take train up to Poschiavo and back to see the views and stroll a bit. The other day take local trains among villages such as Guarda, Ardez, Zuoz, or Samedan (recommendations welcome) to see the architecture.

Sunday I will probably train on to a stop in Austria somewhere around Innsbruck or Salzburg to spend that night and Monday before taking the last train leg on to Vienna on Tuesday.

Question really is whether Sargans is too small or depressing or anything else that would say "Don't stay there" versus larger Chur with bad weather alternatives, more accommodation options, etc. but busier, noisier when I am looking for quiet nature and cute small towns.
