    • 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.

      thanks

    • 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.

      We are going to be staying in Murren for several days. On our last day, we'd like to catch the 7:33am train from Lauterbrunnen in order to make our way to Munich. Do the Murren train and Grutshalp cable car run early enough to make that 7:33am train from Lauterbrunnen? This is on a Sunday morning in May. Thank you for your help.
