Where to go for weekend trips in / around Switzerland?

Hello,

So having recently moved to Switzerland, my partner and I are looking to do some nice weekend / long weekend trips to explore the beauty of the country. Also, seeing as Italy, Austria, Germany and France are all so close by - we would be looking to going there also.

Has anyone got any nice recommendations - may it be a city weekend break, or a lake one. Anything really. We just want to do some nice exciting things.

Thanks in advance.

Hi There.
Welcome....
Recommending Lauterbrunnen formally known as the “Valley” close to Interlaken. Activities are endless. Hiking, Biking, Paragliding, Kletter, Wellness, good food and pure nature. From the little town you can even catch the train up to the Jungfraujoch “Top of Europe”. Although the place can become quite crowded during summer months with tourist it is still a great weekend breakaway.

Hope you enjoy it as much as we do, being nature freaks.

My husband and I have gone on weekend minibreaks to Munich several times so far and always had a great time.

Something totally different, but depending on taste, equally enjoyable can be a trip to the black forest area with a stay on Titisee and a visit to Freiburg im Breisgau.

Once we made a trip to Colmar (Alsace) and visited the city and sourroundings. Beautiful.

It's always nice to take a hike in the mountains and stay in a hut up there. This is usually quite reasonably priced too and a great outdoor experience.

If you're at all into hiking and the mountains, I can't recommend an overnight in an SAC (Swiss Alpine Club) hut enough. I've done it quite a few times now and have always had a great time.
