      Lugano and William Tell Express

      Lugano Mar 25, 2014 at 6:03 AM

      We have three nights in Lugano in mid-May. I had planned two days of walks and maybe a little sailing, but then noticed the William Tell Express. Would it be worth it to spend one day doing the WT as a round trip - or are the views in Lugano somewhat representative of the rest of the trip? We will be coming from Milan.
      Any extra comments or Lugano tips welcome. ps. we are not nightclubbers.

      Thanks

    • Lucerne-Murren Swiss Flexi Pass Day Travel

      Mürren Apr 18, 2014 at 10:04 AM

      Hi All,
      We are in Lucerne and travelling to Murren tomorrow. We will be staying there for 3 days. We have a Swiss Felx Pass for 4 days (non consecutive). We will be validating the pass tomorrow for our travel to Murren. I am aware that it takes around 3 hours to reach Murren from Lucerne. So if we were to make an early start around 8-9AM, then is there something we can visit tomorrow before/after checking in our Murren hotel. This will allow us to maximise the usage of our Swiss pass.
      Also, can you please advise what can we do in Murren for the other 2 days without using the Swiss pass ? For one of the days we have booked a Paragliding experience. We were were planning to hike the village of Gimmewald. Any other suggestions ?
      Appreciate your help.
      Cheers,
      Mo

    • Driving through the Alps in April

      by ell369 Online Now Jan 2, 2012 at 7:36 AM

      Hi folks

      My girlfriend and I are planning a very long trip around Central and Northern Europe in our campervan. We have done alot of research, but the Alps is something we need a little help with. What are the driving and weather conditions like during April? We plan to travel from place to place in the camper, stopping to do outdoor activities like hiking. We don't mind it being cold, but I'd rather the roads weren't either closed or dangerous whilst in an old VW!

      Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    • Help on swiss passes

      by AmyKitchen Online Now Feb 5, 2011 at 3:04 AM

      Hello, We are driving over to Switzerland this July and using Interlaken as our base for 9 days, during this we have booked one night in Zermatt. We intend on using swiss transport whilst there, but are totally confused at which pass to buy. There's the swiss youth pass (we're 23) but then there are also the 'Jungfrau Region 6 Day Pass' and 'The Adventure Card Upper Valais - Uri - Grisons pass'.
      Basically, we want the pass (or passes) that give us the cheapest travel for traveling:
      from Interlaken to Zermatt,
      Harder Kulm,
      Schynige Platte,
      Jungfraujoch (Top),
      Luzern
      and Grindelwald.
      But we are then driving over to Davos for 3 days and will be using swiss transport there too.
      I cant seem to find anything about what discounts or free usage you can get on any cable cars etc (as we'll be using them a lot)
      Can anyone help?
      Many thanks!
      Amy
