I am planning an upcoming trip to Switzerland. The problem is that I must fly into Zurich and I will only have 48 hours. My plane will arrive Saturday morning and I will be heading back to the U.S. that following Monday morning (so I will need to be near public transport to get to the airport in time).
We will be there the weekend of the November 9th. While I know this may not be the best time to visit, it is all that I can work with.
It is just my boyfriend and I and we are both the easy-going, adventurous types that love to eat and absorb sights/culture. We don't mind cold, rainy weather and assume that is what it will likely be. However,we are not sure where to go and what to do with our time there. Like I touched on...we enjoy scenery, good food, being outdoors (if possible), and really getting a dose of culture and lifestyle.
I've looked into boats from Interlaken to Thun, visits to the Matterhorn, riding the Glacier Express. It is kind of overwhelming. One, unfortunate, important factor is money. I will have it to spend but really would like to weigh cost, with experience and time spent.
With that, if anyone has suggestions of potential itineraries I would gratefully take them into consideration. This is my first trip to any of Europe and while it will be short lived, I am up for the adventure!
