My partner and I have been to Europe three times, covering many major cities that Rick suggests. We're going back at the end of June for two weeks, likely starting in Paris (where we've already been but want to return to see Versailles and more) then heading to Switzerland, where we have not yet been. Our main goal is to experience the Alps for 2-3 days...we're not as interested in the larger cities in Switzerland.
I watched Rick's show on Gimmelwald loved it. And biking is something that interests me (at a fairly leisurely to moderate pace).
Is Gimmelwald a good area to see during the down season, or would we get just as much somewhere else - by perhaps having a home base and taking day trips/rides?
We're also considering Chamonix, France as a possible alternative, and taking the lifts to see the views.
We plan to head to Vienna after our stop in the Alps.
Thanks in advance!
