Hi Keri - I really enjoyed your report as well. I've been to Switzerland several times and agree that it is one of the most beautiful places on earth! Thanks for the great photos as well.

Thank you all so much for your kind words!

Mokka4, have a blast on your trip! I am very curious about what kind of weather you all will have when you go. Our next visit will most likely be in late September in a year or so. That is such a bummer about Hotel Des Alpes! It was such a perfect spot for us. I cannot wait to read all about your trip!

Safe travels everyone!

Keri, my #1 choice of time to travel to Switzerland/Germany is the last two weeks of September/first week of October. So many wine and beer festivals! About 70% of those times it has been cool but wondrously sunny in the afternoons. Last two trips, it rained more than half the time. Not good for true hiking, but exploring towns, boat rides, visiting the zoo, climbing cathedral towers, latte- and pastry-consumimg or brewery-visiting was not deterred! I am hoping for fair weather next month for my Mt. Rigi hikes, but the Caillier/Nestle chocolate factory tour and drinking the no-longer-forbidden Absinthe in a centuries-old cafe on the river in Solothurn or climbing the medieval prison tower, or visiting HG Gigers Alien space bar in Gruyeres will all be possible should rain settle in!

Great trip report and loved your pictures. Dallmayr and Augustiner are our go to places. We have the best time there and it is more intimate than some of the other beer house.
