Switzerland: Saanen or Zweisimmen as base?

Jump to last reply

Hey, all! I'm a newbie around here, and I saw a similar post, but I have some different circumstances, so here's my question:
Family of 6 (2 parents, 2 kids, 2 toddlers) traveling to Switzerland. We'll have 4 or 5 nights and we're not renting a car. Because of the complications of switching hotels with little ones, we want to choose one place to stay all 5 nights. It needs to have hiking, restaurants and train station within walking distance. I want to choose somewhere in the center of the Golden Pass rail (somewhere midway between Interlaken and Montreux). That way we can spend 2-3 days just in our base camp area exploring. Then we can spend one day riding down to Montreux and back, and another day riding up to Interlaken and back.
Does this sound reasonable? If so, which do you recommend? Saanen sounds more picturesque, but I'm guessing Zweisimmen dining out will be cheaper, and it's more central location.
Thanks!
