    • SIghtseeing in Interlaken with Elderly parents

      Interlaken Feb 10, 2015 at 10:31 AM

      I wonder how much walking is involved in Interlaken. I am traveling with my parents. My mother cannot walk for more than 250-300 metres. We will be visiting lakes and gardens with her. Generally I rent car to take her around. But it seems Switzerland is different. I see that most people recommend to use public transport in Interlaken and to visit nearby for sightseeing. But that would mean lot of walking after being dropped from bus or train. Are taxis readily available? Any suggestion to plan this travel will be appreciated.

    • Holiday in Switzerland & Heidelberg, Germany

      Geneva Feb 8, 2015 at 5:02 PM

      My family (2 seniors, 2 adults, 2 kids) will be arriving in Frankfurt airport from Malaysia on 30 May early morning. We plan to take a direct train from Frankfurt to Geneva on the same day.

      My queries are as follows:-

      1. Is it cheaper and better to buy the DB bahn tickets for Frankfurt - Geneva or use the swiss pass?

      2. We will be staying in Geneva from 30 May - 3 June (4 nights). We plan to buy the 8 day swiss pass.

      Then after that, we will be going to Grindelwald for 5 nights.

      We will leave Grindelwald early morning on 8 June (maybe make a stop in Spiez) to Heidelberg.

      Should I use the swiss pass from Grindelwald to Basel, then buy a train ticket to Heidelberg. If I buy SBB, do I get a discount (with my swiss pass) for Basel-Heidelberg.

      Or should I not use the swiss pass and instead buy a direct train ticket? This is because on our last day, we won't have much time to visit museums and do much.

      Sorry, I'm a bit confused .

      Thanks so much for your help!

      Warmest Regards.

      Elaine & family

      Wengen or Lauterbrunnen for base?

      Wengen Feb 25, 2015 at 5:02 AM

      Hi. I am planning our Eurotrip with my mom and one of our stops is Switzerland. I am torn whether to stay in Wengen or Lauterbrunnen. Based on my research, Wengen is higher than Lauterbrunnen. But aside from that, which do you think is a better base for 6 days?

      Also is 6 days too much? If we stay in Wengen, id there like a day pass for the train going up and down?

      Any feedback is much appreciated. Thanks!

      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

      DATE AND TIME:
      15.08.2007 - 16:00 h

      MEETING PLACE:
      Giorgio cafe at the Rempart Place (300m from Hôtel Elite)

      After exchangig some travel stories including the latest VT gossip, a little walk around the town and a fabulous dinner, we might head of to the "Sion in Lights" event which starts around 22:15 h.


      [ALL DATA IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE]

      There are already rumours that another famous VT member from the US is in the region at almost the same time. So it would be great if we could meet all together.

      Any other member who is interested to come please bookmark this thraed as all changes to the plan will be posted here.

      Thank you.

      HORSCHECK :o)

      by egrgdjg Online Now Dec 10, 2005 at 9:05 PM

      I am on the Euro rail website and I can't get the time of the trains from Sion to Venice. I know you have to break down your trip to get it, but I am struggling.

      If anyone knows what routes or the break downs, please let me know!

    • Driving over the Simplon Pass

      by giller Online Now Aug 2, 2003 at 7:03 AM

      Visiting Valais 19th Aug. and want to visit an old friend who lives in cugnasco, a little worried about driving over the Simplon Pass as I'm not used to driving over mountain roads and also not used to driving on the left. Is it a dangerous route and did I see a train route that brings cars some of the way, also would that be very expensive. A little worried. Would appriciate honest opinions.
