Zurich, Geneva or Lausanne? Help me decide.

Jump to last reply

I am to attend a business meeting in Lausanne that starts on a Sunday night and goes through the following Friday. That was the original trip. But, now I've been asked to come in earlier the week before for a two day meeting in Zurich. That meeting will be the Wednesday and Thursday before.

Naturally, I will not be flying home to the US between meetings, and now find myself with Friday, Saturday, and Sunday morning to see and do what I can.

Should I stay in Zurich to explore until Sunday and take the train over? Should I go over to Geneva to explore on Friday and take the train to Lausanne on Sunday? Or should I go straight to Lausanne on Friday and explore Lausanne until the meetings start Sunday night?

Which is your favorite and why? And of course, then what are your suggestions?

This is so short notice I've not had any time to do research yet, but I will. Often I'm just as happy simply walking around a city, people watching, seeing gardens, building, monuments etc.

Is there easy access to any trips that might give me a walk in the mountains?

Originally I was only to have 1 morning and 1 evening free in Lausanne, so had thought I might try to see the cathedral there, and maybe take a short boat trip across the lake.

I'm usually really organized me so this is throwing me off to have no sense of what to see and do!
