My husband, toddler and I are planning a trip to St. Moritz, Switzerland in middle of May this year. What do you recommend in clothing? What are the temperatures like in May? How is the wind chills? Should we dress warmly?
We would like to visit Graubunden Region for the Easter holidays.
Can anyone suggest a good self catering accommodation please?
And any suggestions where are the best places to visit please?
Starting next week, I will start working in St. Moritz.
The closest airport in wich Ryanair operates is Bergamo - (Orio al Serio).
My question is, is there any easy / direct way to travel from Bergamo to St. Moritz by train?
Thank you very in advance for any help
we are driving from Fussen to Lake Como, planning to stop in the St Mortiz area overnight to get a break from the drive and tour the are briefly the next morning. Can you recommend the more scenc drive? Is it along 27 or is it better to go down A13 and cut across from Thusis to St Moritz? Which is the easier drive?
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.
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?

Hi, I arrive at St Moritz on the Glacier express and leave on 22nd for Interlaken. Appreciate some tips on what to do. Generally like landscapes and natural beauty rather than museums etc. Thanks in advace.
When going to Switzerland I'll take a train ride there.
I know that hitchiking doesn't have to be a safe way of travelling but wanna ask. Does anybody have a good experience with hitchiking in Switzerland? Do people give you a lift often?
We plan to go up to the top of Corvatsch by the cable car , if the weather is OK.
Tickets prices are not cheap so that we wonder if it's worth a visit?
Is the climbing up by the car a good experience?
What about view from the top of it ?
Drop us a line please.
We will be there at the end of July and we wonder if we can find a restaurant or tavern serving traditional Swiss foods p.e. locat dried meats, cheese, fondie, roestie, etc
We love Swiss specialities and want to enjoy it at their original place.
Will be happy to have an answer :)
I just re-checked a travel schedule. It now appears all trains that formerly ran from Scuol-Tarasp to Pontresina now originate in Ardez. There seems to be shuttle-bus service from Scuol-Tarasp to Ardez. Does anyone know what happened? Is this permanent? Just curious...
I am going this year to White Turf, is anyone else going?
Any advices for the best viewing spots? Or parking?
I have nevr been before to St.Moritz, is it large, can we walk from the centre down to the lake for the races?
Thanks so much!
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!
I have checked the dates for the Bernina Express - it appears it runs on a winter timetable from 20 Oct to 13 Dec and the summer timetable from 10 May to 20 Oct. Does this mean it doesn't run from 13 Dec to 10 May? We are looking to visit next year either March, April, May or June. Is any particular one of these months better than another for sightseeing? 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. Any help with this would be appreciated. Thanks.

Where is a good place to shop

Me and my husband are going for our "babymooning" trip to Swiss and Austria. We have planned for 3 nights in St Moritz. We will be getting there from Zermatt on the Glacier Express. And plan to fit in Bernina Exp in one of the 3 days we will be there. Want to spend the other two days exploring the region and small villages near-by. That is the broad plan we have for the region.
Now for the issue - we are not able to find any b&b or affordable hotel in this area. The ones we checked out are either booked out or are too expensive. Any pointers to smaller, affordable and clean hotels? Our budget is in the range of E90-130 per night.
Thanks & Rgds,
We would like to travel the Bernina Express one way (Chur-Tirano or Tirano-Chur), but not both ways. Is that possible, coming from Milan? How can one get to Chur from Milan - I mean any way other than Bernina Express? Any other related suggestions - we are quite open at this time.
Am arriving on the last Swiss Air flight from London City on friday evening ( around 22.00). What is the best/ fastest way to get to Saint Moritz to maximise my weekend!!!
I have gone thro' the pages of German Eagl and others, and I would now like to visit Pontresina after coming from Lugano via Bernina exp in May end. After landing at around 5pm, can one go to M.M and come back to reach St. Moritz, where a budget hostel is situated. Any suggestions will be appreciated. Any walk or guided itinerary during a short evening!!?
I would like to have your opinion, where [Which town and ?Hostel] to stay for a night / day, when we visit The Engandine V. in May? We would be catching Bernina Exp coming from Lugano.We would be catching Glacier Exp after a days halt in Engandine Valley.
Whether it should be Pontresina or St. Moritz? [or Chur?]
We will be on low budget.
Thanks in advance.

Has anyone in Pontresina (sp)heard of Gaylord Michigan USA? Supposedly Pontresina is Gaylords "sister city". Do you claim Gaylord as a sister? Why? Whats it all about?
In the maps, I see there is a city called "Vadus" and it looks bigger than Chur. I wonder why it is not in this site VT?
Is there hotels and shops in that city?
I have few questions:
1- Is there 4 OR 5 stars hotel at Chur?
2- How would the weather be in September?
3- Is the "Galcier Telecabin" depart from this city (Chur)?
Perhaps I am coming from Milano in Sept 20, so I woudl like to choose a Swiss city to enjoy the telecabins and the countryside villages.
Hello, I am going to be skiing in St. Moritz the first week of March and am wondering what is acceptable for men & women to wear to the pubs and/or dance clubs at night? Are jeans okay? My sister wants to know how dressed up do the women get? Thank you in advance. James
I hope to search for relatives of my ancestors that went to America from the Chur region in the early 1800's. Does anybody have any idea how to do this?? Thank you David Nichols
