Help--How many nights in Wengen???

We are a family of four (with 2 teens) taking our first European vacation this summer, traveling by train.

I am faced with a terrible decision: We have 5 nights to split between Paris and Wengen. How many nights do we spend in each area in order to see the major sights? Are there any opinions as to which area should be given 3 nights as opposed to 2 nights?

Although I realize the decision is largely based on personal preference, any opinions or advice would be very greatly appreciated.

Hi Jan865,

Yes - it is an individual choice and yet a dilemma. I would consider my options - am I likely to visit Europe again and this is just an orientation tour or is it a one-off visit ?

Option 1 - Paris - you can never have enough of it and I would spend the entire 5 nights there. But if natural scenic beauty - mountains and lakes, were my first choice then it would be Switzerland with 2 bases there.

Option 2 - 3 nights in Paris and 2 in Wengen.

But do consider travel time - train journey durations - they will cut in to at least,one full day from the total schedule.

In either case you will be having fun.

Thank-you for your response! This is a difficult decision, but we've decided to spend 3 nights in Paris and then take an early train to arrive at Wengen at about 11:00 or 12:00 noon. I'm sure we'll also see much beautiful landscape on our train journey from Wengen to Rome. This will give us 2 nights in Wengen.

Thank-you, again. Your response really enable me to think things through!
