Hi Geneva, We have 5 hours in transit at Geneve Cointrin Airport, arriving 4.30pm-9.35pm departure, Would it be possible/viable/worthwhile to leave the airport and do a quick city overview ?? If so where would you recommend and which mode of transport would you suggest ? Your help appreciated Ed
We will be ending a French/Swiss hiking trip in Zermatt and will be flying back to US from Zurich. I've been checking the Swiss Rail web-site for dates and times to Zurich.
Am I correct that Swiss rail tickets do not go on sale until 30 days before departure? I can get schedules, but not fares. I don't need any Swiss rail pass since this will be the only Swiss rail ticket I have to buy. All other Swiss tranport is part of the hike trip. I know not to buy from Rail Europe due to extra cost. Is it even necessary to buy in advance or can I simply purchase ticket when I arrive in Zermatt? There seems to be many trains daily from Zermatt to Zurich. Any advice is most welcome.
Where is the closest place to Zuoz to rent bicycles?
Hiking trails through alpine meadows.

We are planning to take the 1 pm train from Interlaken to Frankfurt . This calls for a transfer of trains at Basel SBB in 7 minutes . Is it practically possible to manage this change in such a short duration ? Is there any possibility that the train from Interlaken gets delayed by a few minutes & the connecting train departs in the meanwhile ? Do we have to change stations for this transfer & how do we locate the relevant platforms at such a quick pace ?

How much roughly a taxi would cost from Bern airport to Hotel Landhaus Altenbergstrasse 4, Bern.
I would like your advice on the 'not to be missed' places to visit & activities while I am in Grindelwald. Will be there with my parents, sis and 2 kids aged 12 and 9. We would like to visit the mountains and also Bernese Oberland. We will be using our Swiss pass.
hi, i would like to spend my whole afternoon roughly around 12- 4pm either in meiringen or lake brienz on 20/5, before heading to lucerne. any suggesstion?
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!
do there have a train from Zurich airport to unterterzen? or taxi? bus?
