I'm sure I've read somewhere that a day ticket costing CHF5 is available for Schaffhausen buses. Does anyone have information on this and the area covered?
Flying tomorrow to Geneva. Can I take a train on May 1st from the Geneva Airport to Interlaken in the morning then transfer to Murren? Or do I have to go into Geneva to pick up a train. Mu internet connection here in Slovakia is having a difficulty picking up the Swiss Rail site. Many thanks fellow VTers.

We love scenery, greenery and mountains. Target is to see whole switzerland. I am shortly purchasing the swiss pass. If someone could help build a perfect itenerary with best scenic affordable hotels will really appreciate. Also a guide on best way to travel around the point of interests ie buses or taxi etc. This is our first time and want to make it memorable trip with family.
Thank you in advance to all the beautiful peoples.
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?
there are 5 people of my family. Which"s one id cheaper?

In September We would like to walk from Sunnegga to Riffelalp....is the track steep? we are good walkers I our 70's but unsure about this walk if the ascent is steep. We want to visit the lakes. From Riffelalp we would get the train back to Zermatt. We would get to Sunneggga by the cable car.
A Google search has not shown any short horseback riding ventures near Montreux. Hopefully I'm just missing something in my search. Can anyone assist? Thank you greatly!
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.

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?
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?
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!
Is there a Chinese or an Indian restaurant in brig or visp
is lugano in Switzerland? Will I find a train to Venice?
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.
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.
