7 Days in Switzerland

Day 1 Zurich

Your Swiss adventure starts in Zurich (the biggest airport in Switzerland). Once in the city, go and visit the Swiss National Museum. If history is not your passion, start the Zurich exploration by walking down the most famous street - Bahnhofstrasse. Now, have a coffee at the Jules Verne bar which offers a panoramic view over the city. Afterward, check out the Zurich lake shore, sit down and have a rest. Hopefully, after the break, you will still have enough of energy to stroll down the Niederdorf street to get a glimpse of the old part of the city. Then you might want to soak up a breathtaking view over the city - to do that head up to the Waid viewpoint or the mountain Uetliberg.

Day 2 Lucerne - Pilatus or Rigi

The Lucerne area on day 2 will be a start into the natural scenery of Switzerland. Make sure to explore the city of Lucerne, as it's remarkable too but then plan enough hours for one of these two mountains: Pilatus or Rigi. Take a cable car and immerse the beauty of those views. The cheaper alternative to those two peaks is the awesome mountain called Grosser Mythen. Those who seek adrenaline, why not climbing the mountain in the early morning hours in order to witness the sunrise over the Lake Lucerne? ;) Think about it.

Day 3 Interlaken - Niederhorn

Just one hour from Lucerne is another nature & adventure hub spot in Switzerland - Interlaken. There are so many things to do and see. Let's say choose one of these options: take a cable car to the mountain Jungfraujoch or the mountain Niederhorn, go paragliding, cycle around the Brienz Lake or simply take a swim in the lake. Check out also the Aare Gorge, Grindelwald area or the Harder Kulm mountain.

Day 4 Zermatt

This day will be a jaw-dropping adventure. The scenery in Zermatt with its Matterhorn mountain and the lakes will do its justice, we promise! Since you have 2 days to spend in this region, explore the cute village of Zermatt and then go on this beautiful 5-lakes hike.

Day 5 Zermatt

There is so much to see around Zermatt, that is why you need a second day in this beautiful area. We recommend doing a hike to the Hörnli hut (Hornlihütte) which passes the beautiful Schwarzsee lake. There are panorama views in all directions. An alternative to that would be the hike to the longest mountain bridge (the hike starts in Täsch) or the Gornegrat hike. Whatever you decide on doing, it will be a lovely day in nature.

Day 6 The Vineyards of Lavaux

This day will be all about vineyards. Walking along the Geneva lake between the vineyards with a view of the mountains will make it an unforgettable experience. Park your car in the village called St. Saphorin and walk 3 h and 15 min to Lutry. Once finished, take a train back to St. Saphorin.

Day 7 Montreux - Zurich

Spend your last day exploring the corners of Montreux. It's a lovely city with a great jewel: The Chillon Castle. Take a boat to the castle, then walk all the way back to the city center. An alternative to Montreux would be also Vevey. It's a bit smaller but equally beautiful with lots of cafes and restaurants. Don't take too long, as you might need to catch your plane from Zurich. From Montreux to Zurich it will take you 2 h 15 by car or 2 h 40 min by train.
