My DH has a business trip to Zurich scheduled for late March over our children's Spring Break from school. We are considering joining him. I will have several days with the children without him and want to show them parts of Switzerland outside of Zurich via day trips. I am considering Lucerne and Rapperswil. Does anyone have a good website for Rapperswil so that I may see what is offered in that town? It is frequently recommended on this forum and sounds lovely.
I am also considering taking them skiing for one of the days. Which ski area is near Zurich, offers some sort of children's ski program for my 10 year old (or child care as she is not as fond of skiing as are her siblings)and is easy to maneuver within (rental equipment, lift tickets, etc.)? It does not have to be a big name resort but something fun not to far from Zurich would be great. My older two want very much to ski in Switzerland!
My children love castle ruins, experiencing local culture found in smaller towns and big cities, musuems (in small doses), hiking, boat rides, and my 14 year old daughter LOVES shopping! Any suggestions are appreciated! Moms
