Hello. I'll be going from Paris by train first thing in the morning to see the Swiss Alps and I was wondering how to best enjoy the 3 days (first day will become actually half a day because of the travel time) I'll be spending there. I want to hike, see the snowy mountains, bike around the Lauterbrunnen valley (maybe the route RS did in his video), etc. I love scenic landscapes, green or white. I love waterfalls. And I love picturesque villages. But the truth is I'm very unfamiliar with the place and I don't know how much time I actually need to see everything and have a great time.
Which is the best village to use as home base, Lauterbrunnen, Gimmewald or Murren? How should I space my time? The month I'll be going is also not set in stone, it could be in the spring or fall. Which period/month has the best weather? Which one has the most snow-covered mountains? Also, I understand it's two different mountains? Are both worthwhile? I think Rick only reached the top of one in his Alps video.
The only sight I have in my list other than the top of the mountains is the cave with the waterfall inside. I definitely wanna see that.
Thanks in advance.
