Switzerland in February

Jump to last reply

Just came up with a new plan in the last few hours.
Quit my job. Last day Wednesday, January 13th. Strongly considering a short (7-8 night) trip to Switzerland to celebrate, as joy has been absent in my life for the last year.

This will be my about-15th trip to German-speaking counties. This HAS to be my timeline so my intensive job-hunting can commence ASAP thereafter.

I want something familiar, and no-hassle, so considering Bern, Zurich or Lucerne.
I know the downsides to winter travel(cold/snow, shorter daylight, no boating or hiking). Any personal stories of upsides? (I will not be participating in winter sports. Had foot surgery x2 last year, and not quite 6 months out.)
No problem with city walking, museums, etc
