zurich to geneva in 16 days

Jump to last reply

We will be starting our trip from Zurich late march, and ending in geneva early april, 16 days in total. I was wondering if we can get some advice on our itinerary, especially around the Gimmewald / Interlaken area. we are 2 girls in our early thirties, from singapore, and any advice would be appreciated. (we come from a place where its hot enough to wear shorts and flipflops all year round and hence dont really know what to expect in terms of weather conditions, dressing etc)

For now, some parts of itinerary cannot be changed: kandersteg and geneva. hopefully we can work around that.

day 1: arrival in zurich (6pm), sleep zurich
day 2: half day exploring zurich then on to bern. sleep: bern
day 3: bern
day 4: bern - gimmewald (possibly make a detour to lucerne for the transport museum?)
day 5: gimmewald
day 6: gimmewald - kandersteg
day 7, 8: kandersteg
day 9: kandersteg - zermatt
day 10: zermatt
day 11: zermatt - gstaad
day 12: gstaad (day trip to montreux / vevey)
day 13: gstaad (possibly another day trip)
day 14: gstaad - geneva
day 15: geneva
day 16: geneva (morning flight out)

would gimmelwald be a good choice to stay around the interlaken area this time of the year? we were thinking of maybe doing some easy to moderate hikes around that area, but then again, only if the snow conditions permit. if not, are there any other options, perhaps at a lower altitude where we can do that and still have the great alpine views? we don't want to stay in interlaken itself.

we also enjoy museums and might want to squeeze in a day trip to the lucerne transport museum between bern - gimmewald. will that be advisable? are there any other great museums along the way?

lastly, we will probably be in zermatt over the easter weekend, will all the shops be closed during that period? and how long does the holiday last? (once i was in oslo during the same period, and it seemed like most of the city was closed for almost the whole week)
