Different strokes for different folks as I am discovering from your feedback. Preferences seem to include Brienz, Grindelwald, Murren, Wengen and Lauterbrunnen. One woman raved about the Brienz and it's lake as a dreamy base. So - what would you recommend for first timers? Really don't want anything too noisy and touristy yet want to stike a good balance between not feeling too isolated. Our total travel time in Switzerland is 9 days and really don't want to rush things.
