Mid-April, My husband and I are disembarking a river cruise in Basel. We fly home from Zurich 3 days later. Any ideas for itinerary or place to stay for beautiful scenery, charm, and great food? Would prefer to stay in the same place all 3 nights.
Obvious choice is Luzern. Just over an hour from Basel by train, and a similar time direct to Zürich airport.
Old town, lake (with boat trips), mountains you can go to the top of by train or cable car (Pilatus, Rigi, Titlis).
Don't forget to spend a few hours in Basel.
