Switzerland Itinerary Help

Jump to last reply

We will be spending about a week in Switzerland this August. We will be starting in Zurich where we are meeting friends who live there. We want to go to Zermatt, and also to Martigny to see the St Bernards. There are 4 nights in play, and I can't figure out how much time to stay in each place, and also where to sleep in the Martigny area that is close enough, but also beautiful and filled with fun things to do... we like outdoor activities, culture, cheese, chocolate, bike riding.. We are two families with four teens.
Thanks!

    Hi ileness,

    Will you be spending any of those 4 nights in Zurich, or are those 4 nights left after your time in Zurich?

    What do you want to see/do in Zermatt? Do you want to spend time hiking, or do you only want to see the town and see the Matterhorn?

    And I guess you only want to see Martigny to see the St Bernards?

    Brig is one option for you -- I spent 4 nights there once. It is a very, very sweet town with a beautiful flower-decked central square with small, shop-lined streets radiating out from it, and it is surrounded by beautiful, inviting mountains. There is even a castle in town.

    I was there to explore the area and to do some hiking; I got to see Bettmeralp and Riederalp -- gorgeous. Photos:

    Martigny is about 50 minutes from Brig, and Zermatt is about 1h20 from Brig, so it's a central spot for you if you don't need to stay overnight in Zermatt.

    Brig is a big transport hub for routes north to Interlaken and west/east to Zermatt and Andermatt, so it's very convenient to get to. I haven't ever biked there, but the Rhone rolls by, and there are probably good biking trails between Brig and Sierre, Sion, and Martigny. You can rent bikes at most medium-sized or larger train stations, and you can take bikes with you on the trains for about 5 chf.

    For cheese & chocolate, you can find specialty shops in the towns along the river.

    Have fun as you plan!
