      Getting to Pilatus

      Lucerne Apr 24, 2015 at 5:29 AM

      Hi!

      I'm gonna travel to Luzern in mid-May. I find the top of Pilatus is worth visiting.

      So, what is the best way to get there? I found two ways — the first one is a cogwheel train, the second is a cableway.

      The train seems to me very amazing and its Alpnachstad station is in good location. But according to the prices it costs 72 CHF, which is very expensive. Or it worth? But every 10th ticket is free of charge (so, how it works?). Also the train is out of service now. I wonder to know when it will be launched. In this case, the cheapest way is to take the cableway from Fräkmüntegg station for 32 CHF. The problem is that I have a car. So, is there a parking to leave it near Fräkmüntegg station?

      Guys, I need any suggestions and recommendations from you. Maybe you advise smth else...

      Thank you! Danke schön! Merci beaucoup! Grazie!

      Hi,

      Most hotels I've been looking at in the center of Lucerne say "self-parking." However, some have "self-parking for 18 euros with in-out privileges".

      I've been assuming the first one means having to go to a parking lot, but am wondering if the second one means a parking lot associated with the hotel in some way?

      Can anyone help? My hotel is located on Bruchstrasse, not too far from the lake.

    • Entry requirements for Ukrainian to Switzerland.

      Switzerland Apr 1, 2015 at 3:25 AM

      If the person already has a Schengen visa, then do they still need additional medical travel insurance to enter Switzerland. OR once the have the Schengen visa is this all the need?

    • Jungfrau or Schilthorn

      Switzerland Mar 31, 2015 at 10:37 AM

      I am on a budget. Have heard that Jungfrau is a lot more expensive with not much time to be enjoyed at the top. The trip too is longer. Any suggestions?

    • Does it snow in December?

      Interlaken Mar 30, 2015 at 10:54 AM

      We are going to Europe for Christmas/New Year, but there's very little chance of snow in Spain/France/Italy. We're from the Philippines and this is our first time to hopefully experience snow. What are the chances that it will be snowing in Interlaken on December 27 and 28? 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.

    • Motorway sticker

      Switzerland Mar 23, 2015 at 2:20 AM

      Hi,

      We'll be driving into Switzerland from Germany and wonder how we can get the sticker allowing us to travel on the motorway. Are there places to buy these at the borders?

      Thanks very much.
