Is there a restaurant with private dining rooms, or at least lots of space between tables, for a long private lunch?
Thanks! Auf Deutsch antworten geht natuerlich auch!
we will be driving from Bernex France, NOT Switzerland. It's about midlake, south shore. We want to drive the a public transport stop closest to Bernex and leave our car.
I've read that there is a line that goes out of Geneva to the south shore and east some distance. I don't know where that would be.
Please advise me of the bus or tram line and where is the easternmost point we can pick it up on the south side of the lake.
Our flight will arrive in Geneva at 06:45 on 24/03/2014. From the airport we will make our way to Cornavin train station with the free airport ticket. From Cornavin we will immediately take a train from Geneva to Lucern. I have make a calculation that a Swiss Pass/ Eurail Pass will not be worth it since my 3 days stay in Switzerland will concentrate in Lucern, & we will not be making much train trips. Thus we opted for individual tickets & Tell Pass for Central region. My question is,
(1) Can I buy a CHF 111 (Winter rate) Tell Pass at the Airport or Conavin station? Will the tickets counter be open early in the morning around 7.00 am?
(2) A Tell Pass entitle us to 2 days Free + 5 days @Half Fare. Once I purchased it on 24/03/2014 at Geneva, can I immediately use it to buy an individual train tickets for the Geneva to Lucern trip AT HALF FARE ?? Can it function as a Half Fare card there, or it is not valid for Geneva-Lucern tickets?
(3) I have been keeping watch on the Swiss SBB online websites http://fahrplan.sbb.ch for quite a few weeks. The almost at half price Supersaver Ticket purchasable 14 days in advance (offered at CHF 38 for Geneva–Lucern instead of the normal rate CHF 76) was available daily. Up until last week they have stopped offering Supersaver Tickets for Geneva-Lucern for forward journeys from 6th March 2014 onwards. Are these Supersaver Tickets available only for Winters? or maybe up till 5th March every year only? Will it be available again anytime soon (24/03/2014?) ? Which other way, or where else can I buy a cheaper individual tickets for Geneva-Lucern? I don't want to have to buy another Half Fare Card.
Thank you all VT for your kind advice. With regards.

4th day : depart to Milan.
All your information will be considerated.
How long is the trek from Interlaken to Gimmelwald by train/cable car?
Thinking of leaving the car at Interlaken after driving from Venice.
Also, is there any good alternative to Gimmelwald that would allow us to be in closer contact with a train station to take us to our next destination (Paris)?
Any recommendations for someone travelling alone with only one full day to tour Switzerland leaving from zurich. May be my only time in Switzerland so I want to take advantage :)
I am interested in booking this apartment but I am worried that it is near the train station - areas that tend to be a bit dodgy!!! Is Montreux Rue de la Gare safe and clean???
Me and my wife will be in Switzerland the last week of May. Luzern will be our base. We want to go one day to the Lauterbrunnen valley. We are planning to get to Lauterbrunnen bahn around 10:30 (leaving Luzern around 8:00), then will go in train to Wengen, stay there about an hour and take the cable cab to Männlichen. From there, we want to hike to Kleine Scheidegg and take the train back to Lauterbrunnen. Then by furnicular to Grütschalp and train to Mürren. Then a walk from Murren to Gimmelald by easy path (not via Ferrata) and then descent with (cable car?) to Stechelberg. From there to walk or take the bus to visit Trümmelbach Falls and then bus back to Lauterbrunnen/Luzern. Do you think that this is too much for just one day? We don't want to rush.
Hi, everyone. I'll arrive in Interlaken on March 16th and leave on the 19th, so, as you can see, I'll stay only two full days in town. My partner and I are looking forward to making the most of it and would love to visit either the Jungfrau or the Schilthorn.
1) I was told that the trip to the Schilthorn is more beautiful and cheaper;
2) The Jungfrau is our first choice, but looking for info on the Internet just made us more confused. I read some advise on booking tours quite beforehand (in this case, I'd try to book it from here, Rio, over the Internet). But the staff at the hostel where I'm staying, who seem to be the nicest people, told me not to do this as the whole tour thing will depend on the weather and I should arrive there and check if the next day would be sunny and then buy tour tickets. :/
3) A friend swears to me he paid no more than CH60 for a tour to the Jungfrau. However, because I could not understand what I should pay for in one of the sites advertising tours (there's too much info, and they mention train journeys etc. and I could not get all that sorted out. All I want is to leave the Rugenpark B&B where I'm staying and go visit the Jungfrau for a day. Then, I asked the hostel staff and they said they sell the tours there and it would be around CH200 per person. Well, from CH60 to CH200 is a huge leap. Of course there are things I may be missing, like, maybe the CH200 tour includes lunch or any other extras in the spot that my friend may have paid for too, but was just not included in his tour. Anyway, it wouldn't be the first time that buying tour packages at a hotel front desk end up being way more expensive than going to a tour office nearby and getting a bargain. So, I just don't want to regret spending more money than I should, especially when I could do so much more with the same amount.
4) Any suggestions on what else to do on the other day we'll have left? I heard of an amazing waterfall that is worth seeing.
Please, do advise. It'll be most appreciated.
Signed: clueless Interlaken tourist :D
P.S.: Interlaken was not in our original travel plans, as we were supposed to stay 25 days in Rome and Paris only. But we've been to Bern once and Switzerland is such a lovely country we decided to stop shortly at Interlaken and Gruyères on our way North to Paris...
