Trip to Switzerland in July: need help with itinerary, hotels, places etc

Jump to last reply

Hi
Found this to be a great forum. Need some help with our first trip to Switzerland.

We would start form Mumbai in July third week and got three days to spend (say reaching Swizerland on Fri Morning and staying till Monday Morning).

We are two family with a six year kid. Our interest would be to spend a day in one of the city say Geneva, Zurich, Bern and then take some of the best scene trains to Interlaken and to the top of the mountains.

We would liked eave for Spain on Monday morning.

Need suggestions on itinerary, trains, hotels, approximate expenses and anything else that could be useful to make it a great trip.

Thanks,

    Well you really have only 2.5 days - so I would bag any of the cities and head straight for the mountains (which is what you really want to see). I would land in Zurich and then get a train immediately to Interlaken to stay either there or in one of the villages partway up the mountains. IMHO the Jungfrau is the most dramatic - but all of the mountains have iffy weather (since the tops are in the clouds). So it is often 2 or 3 days before it makes sense to take the time and money to acend the mountain (if it's not clear at the top all you see is clouds). If youstay in Interlake it's easier to find other things to do/places to see - steamer rides on one of the lakes, visitng some of the cute small towns, seeing a couple of the smallvillages part way up into the mountains with perhaps a couple of short hikes.

    As for where to stay - we really need your budget - keeping in mind that Swtiz is probably the most expensive country in europe. (I was in Zurich some months ago and the taxi ride to the nearby hotel was well more than $40 - when it would have been about $15 in New York.)
