3 days trip to Switzerland


We are planning a Europe tour for around a week. we are planning to visit london, paris and switz. Planning a 3 days stay in switz. Can you please let me know what are the must see places in switzerland.

I live in Canada and this is my first trip to europe. I am traveling with my husband and a 4 yr old son.

I am planning to fly into germany and fly out of london. Please let me know if traveling by train to these places would be a good option.

Would appreciate any inputs.

Head straight for the Lauterbrunnen Valley for mountains, alpine villages, spectacular scenery. From there see the villages of Murren, Gimmelwald, and Wengen. Take the train from LV to Jungfrau (via Wengen). Take the bus/gondola to Schilthorn from LV, return trip on gondola and disembark at Muerren explore the little village. Walk downhill from Muerren to Gimmelwald and explore tiny village. Take gondola back down to LV and walk or take the postbus to Trummelbach Falls. That should probably be enough for 3 days.

Hello montrealvisitor, Bonsoir les Canadiens!

Welcome to Switzerland! Bienvenus en Suisse!

As you have 3 days and travel with a little child I would suggest you to do all your trips here by train.

So take a direct train from Genveva to Berne, and from Berne to Interlaken (approx. 3 hrs all together). Use Interlaken as a hub to visit the mountains, Lucerne (direct train connections) etc..

You have the train schedule at www.sbb.ch

From Switzerland you have again direct trains to Germany or take a flight to Zurich airport (for that: take a train back from Interlaken to Berne and from Berne to Zurich airport direct)....and come back longer!

Thanks anyway for visiting us!
