Is Lugano Worth the Effort

Will be in Switzerland in late May. It seems that Lugano is a little out of the way. Is it worth more than a day trip?

We'll be spending 4 days each in Lausanne; Lucern; Interlaken. We can add Lugano for a few days or skip it?

I would not deduct days from those three places--it's a pretty good balance! I would shift from Interlaken to somewhere in the mountains though.

Any suggestions in the mountains? We picked Interlaken because we wanted to be near a central train hub

I chose Murren, it really just depends on the things you want to see and do, but it's Switzerland--you should get the full impact of the peaks!

In defense of Interlaken, it was so nice to come back down to a warm, flat large town each day. We loved being near a major train station, diverse restaurants, multiple grocery stores, etc. We rented a wonderful AirBnB (the ground floor of a very nice lady's home) and were able to relax.

Stay in Lauterbrunnen it is in the valley of the mountains a short ride away from Interlaken. Lugano is not worth going all that way though.

@AbbyO

How long did it take you each day to leave Interlaken and get to Lauterbrunnen, Murren etc.?
What is the AirBNB link for the place you stayed?
