Switzerland Choice

Jump to last reply

I am taking my 16 yr old son on his first trip to Switzerland in late July/early August on a 18 day self planned trek along the Via Alpina staying in campgrounds and a couple of hostels along the way. We will be joined by a friend and his 14 yr old son for a 'guys' trip. The main part of the trip is well planned however, we conclude in Zermatt and will train back to Zurich with one or two nights to stay somewhere special along the way.

Possibly an old quintessentially Swiss town to spend our last day and night before we catch our flight at 1pm in Zurich? Or maybe a place the boys would relate to? I've previously taken the Glacier Express to Chur and enjoyed visiting Chur but the GE is a bit slow (5+ hrs) and I believe my son will sleep through all but the dinner.

This will be the Swiss National Day holiday weekend August 1-3. Maybe there is some sort of festival / celebration we could attend? I've considered Solothurn but I've never been there or to many other places in western CH. Any thoughts suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
