Zurich or Lucerne and Other Questions

Jump to last reply

We are planning a brief trip to Switzerland this summer. This is our first time there. We will be staying 5 nights with the 6th night in Zurich as we depart from there on the next day.

We were thinking of staying in Zurich but it seems that it is more of a business city so we are now thinking of Lucerne itself or perhaps one of the small towns along the lake and take a boat to go from one place to another on day trips.

Please advise us on Zurich vs Lucerne and perhaps give advice on hotels (preferably not near a train station) with lake views. We enjoy seeing the old towns, visiting places of interest, good food, walking around the town and having lovely lake views to enjoy. Which of the other lake towns would be interesting to go to on a day trip or perhaps stay at for a couple of nights? We are also thinking of taking a day trip to Lichtenstein, Germany. Is this do-able?

I will appreciate your suggestions and advice. Thank you.
