I would definitely suggest spending more than one day in a particular city. I'm exhausted just reading that.

If I were spending 15 days in Switzerland I think 3 or 4 days would be spent in Interlaken and Zurich. No matter where you fly into, give yourself at least 2 days to adjust to a new city/language/timezone before moving on.

The only city I have been to in Switzerland is Winterthur (it was only stopping through to play a round of disc golf...I had a thing for that back in High School)

AHH disc golf in Switzerland, how cool is that.

I agree though, you need to slow you pace from city to city some, take your time and soak it in

have a look whether some places can just be a day trip - for example chur is quite a small place, you might not have to spend a whole day there. just visit on your way to st moritz and that gives you an extra day in st moritz. you don't have to spend a night in each place. maybe one of the places you have is quite central to the others, and you could use that as a base for a few days while you visit another town each day? It saves having to pack up all your stuff, check out, check in to yet another hostel every day.

Thanks a lot and I really appreciate your advices. I'll replan the trip and give myself more time since this is the first time I'm backpacking. I think is also a good reason to return the country in future.
