Planning our trip for September. Going back to Wengen for four nights. Last time we went it was in March, so we're looking forward to doing some hiking. When we leave Wengen, we are going to meet friends in Italy, so we are planning on taking either the Bernina Express or local trains heading in that direction.
Plan is to go to Zurich for 4 nights to see the old town and do some day trips, then take train from there to Italy. Lucerne and Basel will be day trips.
Most folks on this forum recommend staying in Lucerne rather than Zurich. I understand that it is a beautiful city, but many people say to stay there because the hotels are cheaper. I'm not seeing this.
Are we making a mistake by staying in Zurich? Can someone give me recommendations on less expensive hotels in Lucerne around the 200-225 range that are comfy and clean? We have Motel One in Zurich booked for 210 a night, but it can be changed.
Sorry if this is rambling. Thanks for your help
