Nuremberg to Switzerland.. where to?

My husband and I are visiting friends in Nuremberg in late February (first European traveling for the two of us). We are planning on spending about 5 days in/around Nuremberg including a trip to Prague. We will have 2 additional days where we are wanting to possibly go to Switzerland. Any tips on where we should go/easy to get to from Nuremberg? Or is there somewhere else we should use these additional days on?

How long are you planning on being in Prague? Bear in mind it's around 4.5 hours by road from Nuremberg, and Nuremberg and the surrounding towns (Erlangen, Bamberg) could easily take up a lot of your planned 5 days. If you really do have 2 days left over, perhaps Munich?

5 days alone for Franconia (Nuremberg, Bamberg, Rothenburg, Würzburg, Regensburg etc.) would be a good time frame. For a reasonable trip to Prague you have to allocate 3 days (incl. transport time).

You could skip Prague. Bamberg and Regensburg are cities coming pretty close to Prague architecture wise. Not as big, but also not as overrun by tourists. Both cities are UNESCO world heritage sights.



Locate also some time for Nuremberg which has a few excellent museums.




If you want to visit Prague add the 2 additional days for Franconia.

If you want to see the Alps go to Garmisch-Partenkirchen or Mittenwald (3-4 hours by train).



To reach areas of the Swiss Alps surpassing the scenery of the Bavarian Alps you'll need 8-9 hours travel time.
