Hello, as I have not picked up a RS guidebook for Switzerland yet (I will soon), I have a general inquiry as to the feasibility of what I can see in a short period of time. I'm doing this so that I have a general idea of what's possible so that I can plan my stay in Switzerland more thoroughly. I plan to be there the first week of September 2015. I initially thought of staying 3 nights, which gives me about 2.5 days of sightseeing. But am thinking of adding an extra night. I'll be travelling solo and my interests lean more towards outdoor scenery and walking the streets of the towns. I don't know if I'd be interested in visiting any museums, maybe one. With that in mind and from the little research I've done, I was hoping to do the following:
-Arrive Zurich afternoon, explore the town on this day with whatever free time I have left after checking into hotel (I've seen plenty of photos online of Zurich and it doesn't seem as charming to me as other towns, so I am ok with not exploring too much of this city).
-Spend the day in Lucerne, or part day here and the rest back in Zurich.
-Would really like to use a day to explore Gimmelwald/OB and the surrounding areas (I've read in other forums that a day trip here is feasible).
-If I have the extra day, would love to explore Bern.
Train rides seem relatively short between these places. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
