Switzerland VS. Germany

Jump to last reply

Hi, my husband and I are planning a 4-5 day trip to Switzerland OR Germany and are looking for advice on which you would consider the most fulfilling and idyllic/ picturesque winter destination. We like a bit of everything as far as traveling: scenery, culture, food, history, adventure, romance, architecture, nature, etc... so we arent picky. We have both traveled a lot but have somehow not made it to either country.

Switzerland: We would fly into Zurich and take the train to Lucerne, spend a couple days based out of there. We would also be visiting a couple mountain towns (maybe buy the Swiss Rail pass) and maybe Bern. Side question- we would like to do a horse-drawn sleigh ride. Which of the many beautiful mountain towns do you like best that offer these?

Germany: We would base ourselves out of Munich, and visit Salzburg and Neuschwanstein Castle.

I know it is a matter of opinion, but I would appreciate yours! This trip will be in the next couple of weeks (February). Thanks for your help!
