Switzerland Travel Guide

Planning your dream vacation? This is my travel guide for 2 weeks and Switzerland!

Switzerland travel

Thank you to everyone for your kind words yesterday about losing Rhett. Your kindness is so profound and your words and prayers really mean the world to me.

I planned to share a post about my birthday weekend in Hilton Head, but with all the emotions surrounding losing Rhett it s just not done yet so instead I m taking you back to Switzerland with this travel guide. I wanted to have a place where you could find all my posts on the country in one spot, hoping that some of you would make the trip one day and use this as a guide Enjoy! I have a big announcement tomorrow so make sure to come back.

Switzerland was one of the coolest places I ve ever visited. I’d heard wonderful things about the country and had high expectations, but it s still took me by surprise around every corner. Yes, the Matterhorn looks spectacular in pictures but in person it literally takes your breath away.

The awe inspiring scenery, jaw dropping mountain vistas and kind people made the trip an experience to remember for a lifetime.

Switzerland has an amazing tour infrastructure, but somehow even with 2 weeks in Switzerland I felt like I was discovering something new around every turn. If you ever get the chance to go, just go.

Since I got such great feedback on my Switzerland posts, I decided to put them all together in one place as one ultimate resource or Switzerland travel guide for anyone who wanted to go in the future. Consider this your one-stop-shop to plan your future trip including my post on Lucerne, Mt. Pilatus, Bern, the Berner Oberland including Murren, Jungfraujoch, Zermatt and Lausanne.

I hope you ve enjoyed the first as much as I ve enjoyed putting them together. I ve been working behind the scenes on my Alaska post and those will start weekly soon.

2 Weeks in Switzerland Travel Guide

Things to Do Eat in Lucerne Switzerland

After flying into Zurich, Lucerne was the first stop on my 2 weeks in Switzerland. It s a Charming historical City and Central Switzerland on the edge of the lake with a stunning Alpine backdrop. It s a must visit for any tour of the country. Give yourself a few extra days to not only explore Lucerne, but also take a day trip to Mount Pilatus and Bern.

Day Trip to Mt Pilatus

Around Lucerne there are several mountains with lifts that are perfect for day trips. I decided to visit Mt. Pilatus and it was one of the best days of the entire trip. The journey took me on a ferry boat, the world s steepest cogwheel train, a hike to the top of the mountain and a beautiful modern gondola back down. This day trip is a must-do for any one traveling near Lucerne.

One Day in Bern, Switzerland

Bern is not as flashy as some of it’s alpine sister cities, but it is still a charming location to visit on your 2 weeks in Switzerland. This capital of Switzerland is full of history, beautiful architecture, great eats and all things Swiss. I visited Bern by taking a day trip from Lucerne.

Switzerland travel

Berner Oberland and Murren

The Berner Oberland and Murren was hands down the most magical location in Switzerland. From the flowery Meadows to snow capped mountains this place is everything you ever dreamed up in a Swiss vacation. I would plan at least 5 days in this region in your 2 weeks in Switzerland.

An Epic Day Trip to Jungfraujoch

Spending extra time in the Berner Oberland gives you plenty of time to take an epic day trip to jungfraujoch, where it is snowy year-round. This is a day trip like no other and is worth the pricey cost. Stop and explore Wegen when you re heading back down the mountain.

Switzerland travel

Zermatt and the Matterhorn

The Matterhorn is the most iconic mountain in Switzerland, but it is out of the way in the touristy town of Zermatt. I decided to go anyway and decided it was totally worth the effort. With 2 weeks in Switzerland give yourself a few days there just in case one of the days is cloudy and you miss sight of this beautiful natural wonder.

Switzerland travel

What to do in Lausanne

If you don t want to backtrack on your trip fly out of Geneva and spend your last day of vacation in the lakeside city of Lausanne, which is in the French speaking side of the country . Explore a gorgeous castle, the equivalent of the Swiss Riviera, and a charming college town before heading home. Plus the food I had in this area was some of the best on the trip. Lausanne is close enough to Geneva to catch your flight home.
