Good 1 day ideas in Switzerland

I have been staying in Switzerland not very long and I am wondering if anyone has any good ideas for a single day out,
Next week have the day off and want to do something with my special lady does anyone have any good ideas,
I enjoy all sorts - traveling, museums, galleries, old architecture, hiking, you name it and I will probably enjoy it or at least give it a try

There are endless things to do. Either search the threads here, or be more specific in your interests.

Re: Good 1 day ideas in Switzerland

Perhaps you should also take into consideration what your special lady likes as well!

Hi Ivan, I would go for the Golden Round trip which is a great day out and you can end up having dinner in Luzern before taking the train back.

Re: Good 1 day ideas in Switzerland

'you name it and I will probably enjoy it or at least give it a try' basically means I enjoy anything and everything and up to try anything new... and that basically means any idea would be a good idea...

Re: Good 1 day ideas in Switzerland

Also close to you and a great day out, especially if you take the paddle steamer, then the railway up/half way up, walk a bit, and the cable car down, is Mt Rigi

Re: Good 1 day ideas in Switzerland

Adventurous side - take the train to Sargans, and the lift up to Pizol, stunning hiking up there. Then come down and spend the rest of the day in Bad Ragaz at the thermal spa for some pampering and walk through the gorge (Taminaschlucht).

Less ambitious but also very nice - you can make a whole day in Rapperswill at the other end of the lake from Zurich, small zoo and nature boardwalk across the late with many unique birds, then old town for some nice shopping, and a small castle on top of lovely old town. Also some great restaurants.

Top 10:
1) stay in bed with your special lady.
2) cycle around lake Zurich.
3) Boat trip - Zurich to Rappweswil and back. Obviously, grab a coffee and some substanence in Rapperswil.
4) Train to Zug, then cycle around lake Zug (see a theme developing here ??)
5) Train to Bern, loads of awesome museums there.
6) Drive to Greye (the cheese place, and look up how to spell it too)
7) Train and bus (or drive) to Walensee (village on northern end), then great walk down the east side of the lake - circa 3 hours - then boat back to a different train station on the west side, train straight back to zurich (if you have a car, get a bus back to it at this point). Can also include romantic dinner option if you have a car - PM for secret location...
8) Train Arth Gotthau, 4 hour walk up the Rigi, train down the other side, plus boat to Luzern, then train back. Romantic dinners also available on this route, or the brewery in Luzern on the way back (buy 2 souvenir glasses for the special lady).
9) Vekehrshaus also in Luzern. Ask special lady in advance if she likes things mechanical. If yes, reconsider option 1.
10) Drive to another country in only 45 minutes and dazzle the special lady with your cosmopolitan attitude - Konstanz in Germany is very close and has a wonderful old town, and quite a different atmosphere to Switzerland.

if that's not enough, I have some more off the top of my head....
