I need to travel from Los Angeles, CA to Yverdon, Switzerland. Nonstop flights aren't available from LAX to Geneva, but are available to Zurich. So, is it better to fly into Zurich and take a 2 hour train, or connect somewhere, fly into Geneva and take a 1 hour train? A local is telling me to make a connection, but a flight connection anywhere in the world, including the US, seems worse than an extra hour in the train.

My boyfriend and I will be meeting my dad in Berlin in mid-September. I've never been to Germany and my boyfriend has never been to Switzerland, and we'll be there a total of 10 days. How should we split up our time, and what should we see? My dad will be renting a car, so we're planning on driving between cities. Any suggestions are appreciated!
