My husband & I will be traveling to Austria & Switzerland in October. We'll be staying with friends in Vienna & Salzburg for a total of 5 days, then traveling to Switzerland. I need assistance with our Switzerland itinerary please. We want to see Zermatt, the Berner Oberland & Luzern, with a minimum of 3 nights in each location (perhaps only 2 in Zermatt). We'll be traveling by train. I'm thinking of starting in Zermatt and working our way up to Zurich for our flight home. Leasurely walks/hikes, nature, small towns and beautiful scenery is what we're seeking. Questions:
What's the best way to get to Zermatt from Austria (we'll probably be in Innsbruck but don't have to be).
What rail pass is recommended?
What are the must see's along this route, or is there a better route?
Thank you in advance for your comments & suggestions.
