Dreaming of a trip and making plans for whenever.....

Planning a nice trip takes our minds off the chaos around us so I could use some advice here......thinking, if possible, in the future of flying into Paris and training to Strasbourg. Never been to that area of France and would love to see it and the cathedral there. Our goal is to get to Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland and we thought it might be nice to train through an area we had never visited. Anyone have any ideas of potential stops to enjoy from Strasbourg to Lauterbrunnen? I notice the route goes through Bern where we have visited before......any suggestions would help! Thank you! We always rent a car but thinking this trip might be a trains only one.....

Hi Jane,

I am in Brentwood! Lived in Franklin for many years! We were in both Strasbourg and Lauterbrunnen last summer, but we did not stop in between. I just wanted to recommend Hotel Silberhorn in Lauterbrunnen...lovely...and great food! Also, plan a trip to Colmar while in Strasbourg.

Keep planning. We have cancelled our 25 day trip for this summer, but looking forward to 2021!

It’s not a long trip from Strasbourg to Lauterbrunnen so you might go straight through. The Lauterbrunnen Valley and great Jungfrau Region are so spectacular I cannot imagine an intermediate stop being better. However, if you have not been to Lucerne, it is quite charming and has the lake and several peaks to explore. Nice train trip from there to Lauterbrunnen as well.

Thank you Laurel......we have been to the Jungfrau twice and think of it as our place where we “take our pack off”.......since we have not seen the Strasbourg-Colmar area just thought it might be fun to stop and admire them on our way to Lauterbrunnen.
