We will be in Switzerland next August/September "08" for 15 days. We love art, modern architecture and nature. Flying in and out of Zurich, all public transportation.
I have some questions and would love opinions.
1) Buy the Swiss rail pass? Basic travel to each location will only cost about $180 but we will be going to a ton of museums, boat rides etc...
2)How to split up the days. Thought to split up nature and city with Lucerne/4 days, Basel 4 days, Lauterbrunnen 4 days and Zurich 3 days, fly home on the 4th day.
3)Moderate price hotel suggestions. I've read a lot on this helpline about the "L" area but not much for the others.
4) clothing suggestions for the weather in city and alps? Don't want to pack a lot of clothes.
Any ideas, comments, suggestions?
