Comments on my Swiss itinerary? (Wengen / Alps; Weggis / Lake Lucerne)

Jump to last reply

I'm in the process of making some big decisions and wanted to get feedback before I truly commit.

11 days in Switzerland.

Fly direct into Zurich from NYC, take the train to Wengen in the beautiful Bernese Oberland (Jungfrau area in the Alps).

1) I rented a chalet for a week in Wengen for around 1100 chf. If anyone has experience renting chalets in the area please let me know. We are using this outfit and they seem very responsive so far.

During our stay we are going to spend one night in a high hut way up in the Alps.

But overall is this too much time in Wengen?

2) After that, we will take the train to Lucerne where we will tour for a day before boarding the ferry across the lake to our hotel / spa in Weggis, where a Superior Room with a private patio overlooking the lake will run 300 chf / night. The hotel is called Post Hotel Weggis and I don't see much chatter about it on Fodors.

3 nights here - too much in one spot? We might rent a boat and do some waterskiing one day and maybe take the cablecar up to the top of that mountain another day.

Anybody have any other recommendations on unique or charming properties such as something close to castles, great wine making, or cheese making?

The only catch is it has to be somewhere roughly between Lucerne and Zurich. Also keep in mind we are spending 7 days in the Alps so a change of pace would be nice.
