Switzerland - where to for this trip?

Jump to last reply

We land in Zurich on 29 March 2016 and had planned to go to Zermatt for 2 days, do the GE to St Moritz and stay in Pontresina for 3 days before going on to Austria. My question to the experts is have we picked the best area to explore or do you have other recommendations? I am asking because I have read a lot of negative comments about the GE and as other posters have mentioned the advertising in our part of the world (New Zealand) really pushes Zermatt and the GE. We are in our early 50's and although we don't do any snow sports we especially enjoy going up the mountains on funicular trains, gondolas, etc and having lunch at the top with views.
On previous trips we have explored the areas of Lauterbrunnen , Wengen, Basel, Zurich, Lucerne, Grimmelwald, Murren, Engleberg and their surrounding mountains and lakes. We did the Berlin Express last time and loved it. We are not keen on cities and don't do snow sports but love going up the mountains, beautiful scenery and exploring villages. We travel by train and not by car. We prefer to base ourselves in one place and do day trips rather than moving from hotel to hotel. Thank you for your help.
