    • Titlis Rotair ticket v. day ski pass

      Engelberg Nov 23, 2014 at 10:22 AM

      We are travelling to Titlis next weekend and we see that the price of the day ski pass is lower than the price of the Engelberg-Titlis return ticket. The day ski pass says that it can be used on all lifts. However, we will not be skiing. Would we be able to get to the top of Titlis using the day ski pass and not skiing?

    • Basel airport to Viking cruise dock

      Basel Nov 1, 2014 at 12:31 PM

      We are arriving at the Basel airport and have to go to the Viking cruise dock. I understand there is a bus from the airport to the train station, and taxis from there. We will have luggage and that sounds complicated. How much is a taxi from the airport to the Viking dock? How long will it take?
      Thank you!

      Best things to see/do in Geneva in 5 hours?

      Geneva Nov 25, 2014 at 9:54 AM

      We will be driving to Geneva to catch an evening flight in January. We'll have between 3-5 hours to explore. Any suggestions? (No cruises or tourist tours) Any cool attractions, places to eat, beautiful scenic areas?
      My husband is into science and history. How is the CERN? I'm more into the artsy stuff. Unique shops or collections in the area worth mentioning?

      Thank you in advance for any advice/suggestions!

      Hello everybody,
      I am looking for a holiday home either in Saxon Switzerland or in Bohemian Switzerland.
      The home must be on a lakeshore, in a quiet and lonely place, with a possibility of fishing.

      Travelling within Switzerland!

      Switzerland Oct 27, 2014 at 12:05 PM

      Hello everyone!

      I am planning to have a 2.5 days trip in Switzerland. My plan is to reach Zurich (from Milan, Italy) on Thursday late night, spend the whole Friday in Zurich, go to Lucerne and spend the whole day there and get back to Zurich at late night. I will spend half day left in Zurich and go back to Milan on Sunday late afternoon.

      I am just wondering whether I can buy a round trip train ticket from Zurich to Lucerne, and can I book it online? As I've checked on several websites and they only suggest me the Swiss passes, which are quite expensive. I also want to go to Mount Pilatus, could you please suggest me how should I get there from Lucerne centre?

      If you had any experience of a day in Lucerne please advice me how should I plan it in a day time!

      Thank you for spending time reading my question! I am really appreciated your suggestions.

      Phoebe.

      Hello everyone!

      Thanks you you all for spending times reading my questions, and I am really appreciated if you can advise me what to do during my first trip in Switzerland!

      Please advice me where to start in Switzerland, which cities and attractions are the must for me during this trip. I am planning to arrived there on late Thursday evening, and go back to Milan on late Sunday afternoon/ evening.

      Thank you so much for your help!

      Zurich airport

      Zürich Oct 25, 2014 at 7:49 AM

      Will be landing in zurich airport at 21:50 just as "transfer" to the next flight on 22:45 to Israel. The inbound flight comes from Warsaw, Poland (schengen block) probably to the main part of the airport and the next flight will be leaving from gate E bulding which is not the same building as the main area of arrival. It is "transfer" with Swiss. I have Polish citizenship and passport. How EXACTLY should I go from the place of getting off board the first flight, to the place of E gates, in just 30 minutes? does anyone can explain it as I've never been in this airport (or Zurich) before?

      Hello local advisers,

      Last time I visited Brig I discovered a bar that was fun, but I've forgotten its name. I think its on the ground floor of a hotel near the main square. Metal music seems to be the theme, and at the time I visited last year you could smoke in there. Any idea where this place is?

      Many thanks

    • Sunday in Bern or Interlaken

      Kanton Bern Sep 23, 2014 at 9:29 AM

      Hi,

      We are traveling with our 8 and 14 year olds next March to Lauterbrunnen from Paris by train on a Saturday. Given the schedules I was thinking it might be better to stop at Bern or Interlaken for the night as it will make for a long train day and put us in Lauterbrunnen late. The question is which would be preferable for Sunday (the next day) Bern or Interlaken as I understand there is not much open. Thoughts? Thanks.

      We are taking TVG Lyria train from Interlaken West to Paris with a five minute stop at Basel. The ticket seems to show a different train number. Do we have to change trains or will it be the same train? It doesn't seem to be much time if we have to change and get our luggage.
