    • Skiing at the Matterhorn in Early June

      Alps Mar 18, 2015 at 5:51 AM

      My daughter and I are driving from Rome up to the Alps. We are interested in skiing at the Matterhorn. However, we don't want to pack ski clothes. Will we need parkas at that time of year? I know we can rent equipment. Any advice as to where, how much, etc? Anyone who has done this, please share your experience. Also, any advice as to where to stay? We will only be there one night. Thank you.

    • Half fare card

      Switzerland Mar 23, 2015 at 2:41 AM

      Hi,

      We're not sure it would be worth buying a half fare card, which we'd only use for 2 days. We'll be staying in Murren and need it for going back and forth to Lauterbrunnen, the Allmendhubel (possibly one way only, as we;ll walk down), and a round trip to Grindelwald. seeing that the cost of the card is £86 per person, will it be worth getting/

      Thanks very much.

    • How to spend 3 days/nights?

      Switzerland Mar 16, 2015 at 6:10 PM

      This June, my wife and I will be spending a week in Paris, then 4 days/nights in Switzerland, where we've not been before. The last night must be in Zurich, from where we will fly back to the States the next morning. We'd like to do some hiking and a take a scenic train ride, so my thought was to spend the other 3 nights in Berner Oberland. My questions:
      (1) where should we stay for the 3 nights, and why? Interlaken? Grindelwald? (I assume that these are reachable by train from Paris.)
      (2) should we do only day hikes, or is there an overnight hike which would fit our plans, and if so, which?
      (3) would we be missing much by taking the Jungfraujoch train vs. the Bernina or William Tell Express?

      Thanks very much for any advice you can offer!

    • one night layover in Zurich...itinerary question

      Zürich Mar 16, 2015 at 4:05 AM

      I'm arriving in Zurich at 9:40pm on a Wednesday evening in June, and flying out (back home to Canada) the next morning at 9:30am. I would love to check out Zurich in my limited time. I hope my plan is possible. Any advice?
      My tentative plan:

      Arrive and be out of the airport by 11pm (approx?)
      Take public transit to Zurich HB Stn
      Check into a hotel within 10-15 minutes walking distance from this station (possibly finding something under 200 CFH? Suggestions?)
      Walk around and check out the Old town, wander a bit and find some late night drinks and food - something with local feel (Suggestions?)
      Back to hotel to sleep for a couple hours, then grab a sunrise coffee and catch train back to airport at 6:30am (enough time for a 9:30am flight?)

      I really hope I can make this work. Thank you in advance for any feedback :)

      does golden pass only stop at OST station?

      Interlaken Mar 13, 2015 at 3:16 PM

      It seems, if so I need to find a hostel closer to OST and not west station, since my parents want somewhere close and not have to walk 15-20 mins if the location is closer to west station.

      I did not find anything on golden pass schedule that stop at west station.
      I want to make sure my observation is correct and it is best for me to find a hostel close to OST station.

      One Night or 2 in St Moritz pre Glacier Express Train

      Saint Moritz May 9, 2014 at 8:25 PM

      We are travelling from Rome to St Moritz on 24th June and intend travelling on the Glacier Express to Zermatt.

      Would like to know the "must see" attractions in St Moritz and if they are within walking distance or public transport.

      Is St Moritz a compact town? Would an overnight stay be sufficient?

      Any recommendation for good 3 star accommodation, reasonable price, walking distance from rail station. Is the rail station near town centre.

      Can we purchase Glacier Express rail ticket on day of travel or afternoon before? What is cheapest 2 or 3 day Swiss pass and will it be accepted for use on the Glacier Express?

      We most likely will have 2 night stay in Zermatt , any hotel recommendations and then travel to Montreux or Geneva for 1 night as we need a train connection to Paris

      I believe there is a French Rail Pass which is accepted on Swiss Rail, minimum 4 day pass. As we are travelling onto Paris this may be a better option if it is accepted on the Glacier Express without an excessive gap charge.

      Appreciate all replies.

      Appenzell vs. Scuol ?

      Scuol May 4, 2014 at 3:55 AM

      Hi!

      I'm planning to travel in Switzerland during the 1st-2nd week of June.

      And at the end of the itinerary, I have two full-days to trip to the Eastern part of Switzerland and wondering which areas can be included for the best trip.

      I planning to spend 4 nights in Interlaken to travel around the nearby mountains and cities, and then move to Zurich or Scuol to visit the Eastern part (for 2 nights) and then have to go back to Zurich to take a flight to my country.

      Mainfeld is at the top of my wish list, but other than this, I couldn't make up my mind.

      I'm interested in Appenzell and Scuol (+ Guarda) but I don't know I have enough time to visit both.

      So could you recommend between Appenzell and Scuol (+Guarda) in terms of the beauty and the uniqueness of the town? Which one has more things to see and do?

      (Please don't think about the thermal baths, since I will visit Bad-Ragaz or Leuikerbad if I can't go to Scuol.)

      Here are the things I've thought about:

      Appenzell

      - very traditional village, cheese, beer, cow.. etc.

      - close to Zurich

      Scuol

      - scraffiti houses (I was hooked by this feature!)

      - far from Zurich

      I'll wait for the kind replies from you guys!

      Thank you! :)

    • Travel from Milan to St Moritz

      Saint Moritz Jan 31, 2011 at 8:32 AM

      I am arriving in Milan on a flight from the US; arrival is 8AM on 27 Feb (that's a Sunday). I need to be in Sils Maria (outside St Moritz) for a meeting the next morning at 8:30AM; so, I need to arrive in St Moritz the evening of 26 Feb, but want to spend as much time as possible in Milan on 27 Feb (sigthseeing!).

      I think I can rent a taxi / car service for approximately350 Euros for a one way trip from Milan to Sils Maria; but, I would rather take a train if it's reliable. There are trains leaving Milan at 4 and 5PM on 27 Feb, and arriving in St Moritz later that evening. These trains look like a good option - but they have a few transfers without much time in between trains. Also, there may be a bus journey included as well. I'm concerned that if I miss a transfer then I won't be able to arrive in St Moritz that evening (which is essential - since I need to be at a meeting in Sils Maria on 28 Feb early in the morning). I would appreciate any insights about the train trip, the reliability, and risk of missing a transfer (for example, because the 1st train on the journey is late). Thank you.

      Hello all,

      I'm going for a short trip to St. Moritz - 2 nights there. I'm not a skier but I look fwd to go to the mountains to enjoy the view and to enjoy a little bit of the snow.

      I liked the following places which I think are close by to St. Moritz and close to each other too - Diavolezza, Piz Nair, Piz Corvatsch and Muottas Muragl.

      I suspect I wont be having the time to go to all 4 of them but would love to go to 1 or 2 and I would love to seek suggestions from fellow VTers here - to which 1 or 2 places should I go?

      Another thing - besides paying for cable car / mountain railways up there, do I have to pay any entrance fees although I dont ski?

      Thanks,

      Muottas Muragl or Scuol in mid-June?

      Kanton Graubünden/Grischun Jan 11, 2009 at 1:50 PM

      I know Graubünden tends to start its summer season a bit later than the rest of the country because of its snows. We'd like to explore this part of Switzerland, but it looks like the only time we could get to this area is early to mid-June. I've heard a lot about the mountain hotel at Muottas Muragl and thought it might be fun to stay there. The website seems to indicate it would be open, but I'm not sure if it would be worthwhile so early in the season (we'd prefer to do some hiking if possible). Would you recommend I press on to Muottas Muragl, or should I "stay in Scuol"? ;) Thanks!

Also is one section of the Bernina Express line more scenic than another - could we just do the section from St Moritz to Lugano or is the more scenic section from Chur to St Moritz.
