Hello all! First time poster to these forums, so please go easy on me. ;)
My wife and I are planning a trip to Austria and Switzerland in the coming months, likely late April-early May. At the moment, our general plan looks like this:
4 days in Vienna and the surrounding area
**travel day to Zurich via train**
4 days in Zurich
2 days in Lucerne
Clearly, there is a lot to see and do in all of these locations, as the many lists and trip planner guides here demonstrate. But, our big question right now is, are we planning the right amount of time in each location? Too much, or too little? For example, I have a feeling that 4 days is great for Vienna, but too many for Zurich.
If it helps any, our general travel tactic is to hit the big ticket "must see/do" places first, then try to find a couple of intriguing things that are easily accessible, but are generally missed by most tourists. (oh, and we're both foodies, so noshing like the locals is always on our list, lol)
Any thoughts or advice is greatly appreciated!
