    • what to in Winterthur when you´re 15 and a foreigner.

      Winterthur 7 hours ago

      My son of 15 is going to Winterthur from mid august to mid september. The purpose is to learn German, and he¨ll be attending classes, but only for 2 hrs. a day. So he¨ll have a lot of free time, and I¨m hoping that somebody can give me some ideas about how to fill out the remaining time, preferably in german speaking company. He plays the piano, he¨s a good swimmer, but he doesn¨t really like other sports, he likes photografy and computers, Maybe someone knows of some computerclasses. Thank you so much..

      I will be reaching in geneva on 5th july at 2pm via train. I have my hotel booked in geneva for 5th july till 6th july. My next stay is booked in luzern/lucerne from 6th july to 9th july. Would need your help to plan my travel

      a)should i leave for luzern on 6th july early morning or should i stay till evening in geneva and then head for lucerne? I am more into nature(lake walk,park,boat ride,train journey and all) and NOT into museums or building or art. So do you think it is worth staying in geneva on 6th also or I should leave for lucerne early morning and take a day off there.
      b)in lucerne what all should I cover. My target is to go to mount titlis on 7th july. Should I go to montreaux or annecy as I have swiss pass or ??
      on 8th my plan is to go to interlaken and jungfro.
      9th i have my flight so no plans....

      Please help me design a non hectic itenary from 5th to 9th july. Keeping in mind that I like nature,views,scenery,lake walk,park, i dont like museum,monuments,art or history. Thank you all in advance

      My friends will travel from Milan to Lugano Railway station. From there , they will need to go to the Agno Airport to catch a flight. Since they will have quite some luggage, would you recommend them to take a Taxi, or the FLP train till Agno station?
      - How much should a taxi cost from Lugano station to the Agno Airport?
      - If they travel by train, would it be easy to go to the airport from Agno station with all the luggage by foot or by taxi?

      How to purchase tickets for the "Chocolate Train"?

      Montreux Jun 30, 2014 at 9:40 PM

      Hi there, I'd like to secure reservations for the Chocolate Train. I will probably be buying the 8-day Swiss pass. If I understood correctly, the tickets would be included in the Swiss pass but the actual seat reservation wouldn't.

      (a) is this correct, and
      (b) where do I reserve tickets for a specific date and seat for the Chocolate Train given that I'm a Swiss pass holder

Please advise if it is an easy drive from the nearest exit from the Autobahn to Residence Panorama. Please also advise if the parking area at Residence Panorama is close to the lobby as my husband has a back problem and cannot walk steep and long distances.

    • Lucerne-Murren Swiss Flexi Pass Day Travel

      by mohit9382 Online Now Apr 18, 2014 at 10:04 AM

      Hi All,
      We are in Lucerne and travelling to Murren tomorrow. We will be staying there for 3 days. We have a Swiss Felx Pass for 4 days (non consecutive). We will be validating the pass tomorrow for our travel to Murren. I am aware that it takes around 3 hours to reach Murren from Lucerne. So if we were to make an early start around 8-9AM, then is there something we can visit tomorrow before/after checking in our Murren hotel. This will allow us to maximise the usage of our Swiss pass.
      Also, can you please advise what can we do in Murren for the other 2 days without using the Swiss pass ? For one of the days we have booked a Paragliding experience. We were were planning to hike the village of Gimmewald. Any other suggestions ?
      Appreciate your help.
      Cheers,
      Mo

      Cheapest train fares in Switzerland

      by cheezecake_deli Online Now May 30, 2013 at 10:53 PM

      My family and I (two adults and one 5-year old child) are planning a long weekend in the summer in Switzerland. We will be flying into Geneva, spending one night in Bern, and then two nights in Murren in the Bernese Oberland, before departing from Geneva again. I can't figure out the cheapest rail options for this itinerary (Geneva Airport-Bern-Murren return) - there seems to be a plethora of rather confusing half-fare travelcards and inter-regional travelcards! Can anyone help? Thank you.

      Travelling to the Jungfrau region in February

      by jessicax0 Online Now Jan 19, 2012 at 6:26 PM

      Hi,

      Im travelling around Europe and will be staying in Interlaken for a few days mid February. A friend of mine suggested doing the walk from Murren to Gimmelwald which she believes is only 30 or so minutes (which is great cause im not an experienced hiker). Is this type of thing doable considering the time of year? And is there a lot of signage around to point you on the right path?

      Thanks :)

      How to travel cheaply in canton of Bern?

      by nedmsp Online Now May 21, 2011 at 6:03 PM

      My wife and I stayed in Murren for about 7 days last year (September 2010), and we checked out most things in and around Interlaken. One thing that gave us the price shock was the public transportation or moving around cost (train, bus, and aerial tramway, funicular). We love Murren and plan to visit Murren again (September 2011) and would like to find out the inexpensive way to move around in canton of Bern, specifically around Thun, Interlaken, Brienz, Lauterbrunnen. Thank you in advance.
