Town/Region in Switzerland as daytrip from Mittenwald?

Jump to last reply

So my husband and I are going back to Europe next month with another couple. We have traveled to Europe many times but our friends have not. I've planned most of our itinerary and we are basing ourselves in Mittenwald for a week for the Germany portion of our trip before heading down to Rome. I've been to Bavaria several times and I've been to Switzerland, so this request for information has more to do with our friends' desire to, well, say they've been to Switzerland. I know I know and I agree with all of you who want to chime in that it's probably going to be a mistake. It's tricky because I know it's better to limit ourselves, but I also appreciate their desire to see as much as they can (within reason, which is where I come in).

So, all of that aside, I'm thinking that the closest feasible location over the Swiss border with some interest may be Appenzell? My husband and I spent a few nights there in 05 but we found out, after arrival, that there was a bank holiday and basically the town was shut down the entire time we were there. So I really liked it and wouldn't mind returning. I'm also considering maybe a town along the southern-portion of the Bodensee, but this is new territory for me and I know nothing about it

As I mentioned in my title, we are staying in an apartment pretty much in the middle of Mittenwald and we don't mind a longer drive for this daytrip, as everyone involved knows that entering Switzerland will making for a longer day.

So, any suggestions on where we can go?
