    • Staying a night in Leysin

      Leysin Oct 28, 2015 at 7:46 AM

      Would it be worthwhile to stay a night in Leysin? I read that the park is closed when I'm there with my kids (aged 9 & 12). We are planning to stay there around 15 Dec for 1 night. We would like to do some simple winter activities as we are from Malaysia.

      I'm planning to stay a night at Leysin and travel to Les Diablerets for a visit with my 2 kids (aged 9 & 12) and with my sister. What are the 'not to be missed' things to do there?
      I will be there probably around 15 Dec. We won't be skiing. I hope that the kids can do some fun in the snow activities though as we are from Malaysia.

      Swiss Travel Pass

      Zürich Yesterday

      Where can I buy the Swiss Travel Pass? Arriving on Zurich airport.
      I know this can be purchased online - however it asked for an address for physical delivery.
      I would like to either buy online if this is printable (no delivery is required) or buy it when arriving Zurich.
      I arrive in a couple of days and could not order a delivery. Thanks

      We are arriving at the Basel airport and have to go to the Viking cruise dock. I understand there is a bus from the airport to the train station, and taxis from there. We will have luggage and that sounds complicated. How much is a taxi from the airport to the Viking dock? How long will it take?

    • Basel - Solving a Dilemma

      Basel Jan 15, 2013 at 5:43 AM

      Hello dear travellers,

      I am Panos. In the mid-June I am thinking of going with my wife to Basel, Switzerland. We are thinking of spending almost one week. Since I am map lover, I started checking the map and realized that Basel is a great spot in the middle of Europe, from where one can see not only one country but 3 at the same time (Switzerland, France and Germany).
      So, right now I have a dilemma on how to spend my days in Basel. Should I stay one or two days there and then go to Munich or to Strasbourg (France).
      Also, I would like to visit Zurich (does it worth it?)
      So, what do you suggest me to do? Spend all the days in Switzerland or divide them by going to France or Germany?

      Finally, in order to help you with your proposal, I would like to say that me and my wife love mainly historical places (medieval), baroque and Gothic buildings and also.. good food! :)

      I hope my information was enough and those of you that have seen all the above places could propose to us a great option.

      Looking forward to your reply,

      Best Regards,

      Where to park and get taxi ?

      Basel May 22, 2012 at 11:27 PM

      We're taking my mother to the toy museum in the centre of Basel. She cannot walk very well, so we plan to park our car outside the centre and take a taxi from the parking lot to the entrance of the museum. I know there is good public transport, but she cannot manage that, a car is much easier for her.
      What's a good place to park and get a taxi?
      And does anyone know how much the taxi will be approximately? I have to get Swiss Francs and would like to know how many I should get.
      Thank you.
