Swiss decisions

Jump to last reply

Switzerland in early April! I am planning to spend five nights solo before meeting up with DD in Lausanne, where we will spend one week. I fly in to Zurich, and think I will go straight from the airport to Lucerne. I would love to spend most of my time enjoying Switzerland's natural beauty, although I am not adverse to a castle or medieval town centre or two. I would prefer to sidestep tourist buses and crowds. I do understand that the spring /easter break will be busy, but it would be so nice to find places that are just a bit out of the way.
I have never been to Switzerland, so all will be new to me.

My questions: I read a lot about the scenic train rides e.g. Glacier Express from St Moritz to Zermatt. It seems beautiful but also very touristy. Will the postal buses that PalenQ wrote about earlier give me the same joy?

I think I will spend at least three nights in Lucerne, then perhaps move on to Grindelwald before Lausanne. OTOH I may just stay in Lucerne and take day trips from there.

Any suggestions?
