Itinerary opinion for first time in Switzerland in Late march

Jump to last reply

Originally, I had plans to stay in lucerne and use that as a base:

Day 1: arrive geneva afternoon, stroll around and head to lucerne I evening
Day 2: early start to go to engelberg
Day 3. Not sure
Day 4 head back to zurich
Day 5 fly back

But now I have second thoughts. I would love to stay in the Bernese Oberland area. Maybe stay in lauterbrunnen as a base. If weather is good then I can head to jungfrau , if not, then I can head to bern, or other areas around there??

My biggest worry is that it would be bad weather in march, snowing?? Make it unpleasant for hiking? I love to snowboard, but I am alone on this trip and its difficult to lug all my boarding gear (not the board, but the pants, jackets etc), so I probably should avoid that.

If I stay in lauterbrunnen, would I be able to enjoy the area without snowboarding?? I love hiking and I'm a runner, but I'm not sure if the weather permits me to hike, and I'm worried about hiking alone too.

My thoughts were-

3/23: arrive geneva at noon, either hang out in geneva or go to montreux, then head to lauternbrunnen in the evening.
3/24: check weather, if ok, go to jungfrau , if not, hiking around the area or go to bern
3/25: same thing
3/26: explore the area or head to zurich
3/27: early flight home to US

Would this work??

Given it would be in march, solo trip, which option would you do?
