I am planning a trip to Europe this summer and would like to do some hiking in the Alps. I would like to spend maybe 2 nights in an alpine area where I can hike on mountain paths with cows and wild flowers and get away from houses and stores. I know very little about what is available and have just begun my research. I would also like to see the high peaks (without a strenuous climb). I am thinking that Wengen may be an area of interest, but I can go anywhere at this point. My wife and I enjoy moderate mountain hikes and getting away from commercial areas and lots of people. I also don't know if May is too early and if September is too late because of snow. At this point I am open to any time and location plans.
If anyone can give me any guidance and ideas for my trip, it would be greatly appreciated.
