We have 3 days - going out from Basel at Sunday and getting back Tuesday night - to make a nice trip to the alps. I understand October is not ideal, but that's what we have... I will be grateful for any ideas - we prefer to find a place for these 2 nights and travel from there. We would be happy also to meet something which is not only touristic.
One option is to take some hotel near Thun lake - and from there to explore the Lauterbrunnen area, which I understand is very classic alpine - hoping the weather will be good enough, and If not, we can hop to Bern or Lucerne. Is that a good Idea?
And is the weather on Geneve lake better in this time of the year? Should we aim there - and even taste the French alps?
