      From French sector to Swiss Railway station at Airport

      by jacquisuiza Online Now 12 hours ago

      We will rent a car in France and drive to Geneva. To avoid international one way fare we would like to drop the car off at the French sector of the airport. Can we go to the Swiss sector to catch a train to Berne? I read the officials FAQ and studied the maps but do not come to an answer. They only describe the reverse case.

    • Holiday in Switzerland & Heidelberg, Germany

      by ewoonyl Online Now 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

      We will be driving to Geneva to catch an evening flight in January. We'll have between 3-5 hours to explore. Any suggestions? (No cruises or tourist tours) Any cool attractions, places to eat, beautiful scenic areas?
      My husband is into science and history. How is the CERN? I'm more into the artsy stuff. Unique shops or collections in the area worth mentioning?

      Thank you in advance for any advice/suggestions!
