Planning 2nd trip for this October and "the mountains are calling", we loved Bernese Oberland region and fell in love with the villages above Interlaken, but looking for a different location this time. A friend told us we would enjoy the hiking above Wasserauen. The photos she shared of them hiking Appenzell around a glacier lake and up to a restaurant built into a cliff looks amazing! www.myswitzerland.com/en-us/hiking-and-aescher-cliff-restaurant.html
Has anyone hiked this area? or another beautiful area I'm not thinking of, it's a very small country but man there are a lot of villages to google! Thanks for any help!
When we planned our Switzerland trip we used the forum, myswissalps.com. Very similar to this and so very helpful. Full of trip reports too.
It was our first time and we did Murren, Jungfrau etc. So I can't offer up personal experience but that site is wonderful and has many experts on it. If you give them what you want to experience, they will point you in a direction.
