We will be in central Switzerland for 3-4 days in late June (2 adults, 3 children ages 7, 8, and 11). We are a pretty active family and love being outdoors, so are looking for the perfect place to experience the scenic beauty of the Alps, hike, etc. From everything that we have read, Wengen/Murren sounds perfect (love the car-free aspect, scenic, easy access to trains, hikes--not interested in night-life, etc.). My only concern is that a native Swiss friend mentioned that it is very touristy--and I guess that it probably is true to some extent since all the guide books say that it is a "must-do"---I am just wondering if it is that much more crowded than say Luzern/Pilatus, Engelberg/Titlus? For us, hiking the beautiful trails would really be ruined if we were walking along in a herd of people! Our friend suggested Engelberg as less touristy, but it looks like a much bigger town than either Wengen or Murren ...... we like small, quiet and off-the-beaten path.... Any thoughts would be appreciated! Are we worrying for nothing (sounds like everyone LOVES the Jungfrau region) or should we be looking in less commonly-traveled areas (such as Graudunden). I am sure there are plenty of spectacular mountains around---maybe we don't have to go to THE tallest peaks....? THANK YOU in advance for any advice you might have. It would be a lot easier if we had more time and could go to multiple places.
