I've been planning a trip with my parents (both above 60) to Europe. I posted in the General Europe thread and got many great suggestions on this thread (https://community.ricksteves.com/travel-forum/general-europe/traveling-through-europe). Now, I am planning the things I want to see per city-in each country. So, here are the places that I'd like to see in Switzerland.
Of all the countries, I found this to be the hardest as there seem to be spectacular views everywhere. But, considering I have around 5 days (2nd Sep morning - 6 Sep evening) I had to pick and choose a lot. In the end, here is what I came up with - in short it's a town/landmark per day. Do let me know if this works.
Arrive from Paris on 2nd Sep morning..or maybe 1st Sep night...not yet sure..
2nd Sep - Rhine Falls and Zurich city (just walk around Zurich and look at its streets etc)
3rd Sep - Bernese Oberland and surrounding area
4th Sep - Arrive at Interlaken, then visit the Jungfrau :)
5th Sep - Grindelwald OR Montreux
6th Sep - Geneva (Spend the day here and leave by an evening flight to Rome)
Normally I wouldn't do so many cities (1 a day) .. but its Switzerland and there are trains everywhere... and I feel like peeking everywhere.
I plan to stay at Berne or somewhere nearby (which is cheaper :)) as that seems central to all of these places. I'll come to Berne once I finish seeing Zurich on 2nd Sep in the evening, and check out on 6th Sep morning, go to Geneva and leave from there.
What do you think? Is this doable? Do let me know. If not, what do you suggest I drop? Apart from the Jungfrau and the Rhine falls :)
