    • SIghtseeing in Interlaken with Elderly parents

      Interlaken Feb 10, 2015 at 10:31 AM

      I wonder how much walking is involved in Interlaken. I am traveling with my parents. My mother cannot walk for more than 250-300 metres. We will be visiting lakes and gardens with her. Generally I rent car to take her around. But it seems Switzerland is different. I see that most people recommend to use public transport in Interlaken and to visit nearby for sightseeing. But that would mean lot of walking after being dropped from bus or train. Are taxis readily available? Any suggestion to plan this travel will be appreciated.

    • Holiday in Switzerland & Heidelberg, Germany

      Geneva Feb 8, 2015 at 5:02 PM

      My family (2 seniors, 2 adults, 2 kids) will be arriving in Frankfurt airport from Malaysia on 30 May early morning. We plan to take a direct train from Frankfurt to Geneva on the same day.

      My queries are as follows:-

      1. Is it cheaper and better to buy the DB bahn tickets for Frankfurt - Geneva or use the swiss pass?

      2. We will be staying in Geneva from 30 May - 3 June (4 nights). We plan to buy the 8 day swiss pass.

      Then after that, we will be going to Grindelwald for 5 nights.

      We will leave Grindelwald early morning on 8 June (maybe make a stop in Spiez) to Heidelberg.

      Should I use the swiss pass from Grindelwald to Basel, then buy a train ticket to Heidelberg. If I buy SBB, do I get a discount (with my swiss pass) for Basel-Heidelberg.

      Or should I not use the swiss pass and instead buy a direct train ticket? This is because on our last day, we won't have much time to visit museums and do much.

      Sorry, I'm a bit confused .

      Thanks so much for your help!

      Warmest Regards.

      Elaine & family

      Wengen or Lauterbrunnen for base?

      Wengen Feb 25, 2015 at 5:02 AM

      Hi. I am planning our Eurotrip with my mom and one of our stops is Switzerland. I am torn whether to stay in Wengen or Lauterbrunnen. Based on my research, Wengen is higher than Lauterbrunnen. But aside from that, which do you think is a better base for 6 days?

      Also is 6 days too much? If we stay in Wengen, id there like a day pass for the train going up and down?

      Any feedback is much appreciated. Thanks!

    • Metal music bar in Brig

      Brig Sep 27, 2014 at 7:25 PM

      Hello local advisers,

      Last time I visited Brig I discovered a bar that was fun, but I've forgotten its name. I think its on the ground floor of a hotel near the main square. Metal music seems to be the theme, and at the time I visited last year you could smoke in there. Any idea where this place is?

      Many thanks
