I will be traveling by train from Strasbourg to Lake Como in early May and I have 3 days to fill in Switzerland along the way. I’m ok with spending all 3 nights in the same place and planning day trips or splitting it up into two places but I don’t want to deviate to much off track. Since I only have three days, and I’m traveling solo, I’ve decided to save the Alps for another trip. Can’t decide between Basel, Lucern or Zurich… Bern came up on my radar recently but I just can’t decide.
Looking for a scenic, historic, charming town or city. Don’t expect it to be too crowded in early May but I also want something that doesn’t only cater to tourists. Easy to use public transport or walkable would be a plus as would affordable accommodations (I know, Switzerland is expensive!).
Would love some input!
