Last chance to visit beautiful things

Hi all,

I am moving out of Switzerland in two months (I live in Zürich), and I don't want to miss the last chance to visit important/beautiful places of Switzerland. I was in the famous ones: important cities like Luzern, Geneva, Bern,...; nature places like the waterfalls, Pilatus, Grindelwald, ...

But as I said, these are just famous places to go. I am wondering if there are other places not so famous but still as beautiful / interesting to visit. I really appreciate your suggestions.

Thanks in advance!

Re: Last chance to visit beautiful things

Beauty is relative... one can go to a famous place and feel nothing or hike on the most unknown of trails and be amazed... Are you just looking to tick boxes (then just look up a travel guide) or want to have a good time (then just plan something somewhere you haven't been before and expect the unexpected...)

Have you gone south of the Alps (Bellinzona, Lucarno, Lugano...)? Or on the Raehtian railway?

Re: Last chance to visit beautiful things

once the rain clears up the spring is a perfect time to head to lavaux and walk through the vineyards. follow up with a drink on the terrace (http://www.barontavernier.ch/en-3-the-deck.html) and you'll be happy you did...

Re: Last chance to visit beautiful things

Near to Zürich: Obersee in Canton Glarus, Mürgersee,Wallensee obviously, Klöntalersee, those are a must since they are next to Zürich. Otherwise, Ochschinesee in Canton Bern =}
