Travelling around Switzerland

Hello, 

I'll be spending a few days in Switzerland in a month. I have two free days and I don't know where to go! 

Is any of you from Switzerland? Would you give any advice on where to go? I've already been to Geneve, Zurich, Thun, Spiez and Bern and I want to discover new places. 

I would love to go to both, to countryside towns and big charming cities. Which are the best places to visit in your opinion?

I'm not from Switzerland, but I travel quite a bit. How about Lucerne? It's a very walkable city with medieval architecture, a scenic promenade, and a famous wooden bridge (Kapellbrücke). The Lion Monument carved mural is also there.

I live about an hour from the Swiss border (on the French side) and I've visited a few places in Switzerland. I even lived near Neuchâtel for 4 months - that's a nice little city but not exactly the most exciting place in Switzerland. The lake is good for swimming in though and the little villages around it are cute. I worked in Auvernier which is 5 minutes from Neuchâtel and really pretty.

Lausanne is nice. I have friends who live there so I've visited it a few times - you get great views over the lake and the Alps plus there's quite a lot to see and do within the city itself. I can recommend the Musée de l'Art Brut.

I went to Zurich for the weekend in 2014 and it was fantastic. It's a really beautiful city. Not at all what I was expecting.You could go back there I suppose!I know I would.

Otherwise, I can only think of places that aren't worth going to on the French side: Le Locle, La Chaux-de-Fonds, Porrentruy...Sorry if anyone is from there!

Let us know where you decide to go.
