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.
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.
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!
I am trying to book a hotel since the only hostel there is booked... not sure the distance between the hotel and the train station.. since the next day we want to get on the golden pass... I could not tell on the map where is the train station so not sure how far it would be from the hotel
I want to buy tickets of golden round trip with Swiss Half Fare card.
Where is the tickets shopping spot I can find before boarding the boat in Lucerne?
And totally we are 7 people, should I reserve in advance to avoid missing the boat schedule I prefer because there will be too many people?
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 :)
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.
I was on http://www.raileurope.com/index.html look for a train schedule from Lausanne to Monteux, when I put in I have either swiss travel pass or eurail Austria - Switzerland pass, it will tell me there is no schedule available at this time, but if I choose I have no travel pass, there are schedules.
I thought the reason I get a pass so that I can travel anywhere and be covered I am really confused...
thanks for all your help!!!
I'm flying on SWISS and there's a short transit in Zurich airport. Though there's a fast train from the airport, is a 3 hour layover enough time to visit Zurich city center or should I just not risk it and hang around at the airport? Thanks
