We are getting into Zurich at 5:30 pm Friday night (Oct. 9) after a long day of traveling & layovers from the US . We are with 4 people (2 parents & 2 sons-20 & 23).
Thought that we would crash in Zurich Friday night & spend Saturday checking out Zurich; leave Zurich Sunday morning-and would head for Lauterbrunnen Valley & use that as our base for remains of Sun. Mon. & Tues.
--possibly go up to Jungfrau or Schilthorn if the weather is clear
Wed. leave Lauterbrunnen Valley & make our way to Montreux as we have a conference from Wed. afternoon - Fri. nite.
Saturday, do the Chateau Chillon Castle & make our way to Lausanne or Vevey by train as we would have gotten rid of our car (IF we rent a car) & if not, we would still go by train to Geneva :)
Sunday, go back home from Geneva.
Would you advise renting a car (approx $200.00) from Sunday - Wed ; we won't need our car in Montreux during our conference & then would just take the train on Saturday to Lausanne & then to Geneva for our Sunday flight back home.
OR, should we take the trains & forget about renting a car? We like the flexibility of having a car, but maybe a dumb idea?
ALSO, is there enough to do in Lauterbrunnen Valley with 2 males in their young 20's.
Oh, one other thing, I have read about the thermal pools in Leukerbad....is there another place that has that? Are those really a fun thing to do?
YES, I have been reading these boards non-stop & still don't know what I should be doing.
Any help or suggestions would be truly appreciated!!!!
THANKS so much--Sally
