    • Skiing at the Matterhorn in Early June

      Alps Mar 18, 2015 at 5:51 AM

      My daughter and I are driving from Rome up to the Alps. We are interested in skiing at the Matterhorn. However, we don't want to pack ski clothes. Will we need parkas at that time of year? I know we can rent equipment. Any advice as to where, how much, etc? Anyone who has done this, please share your experience. Also, any advice as to where to stay? We will only be there one night. Thank you.

    • Half fare card

      Switzerland Mar 23, 2015 at 2:41 AM


      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.


    • How to spend 3 days/nights?

      Switzerland Mar 16, 2015 at 6:10 PM

      This June, my wife and I will be spending a week in Paris, then 4 days/nights in Switzerland, where we've not been before. The last night must be in Zurich, from where we will fly back to the States the next morning. We'd like to do some hiking and a take a scenic train ride, so my thought was to spend the other 3 nights in Berner Oberland. My questions:
      (1) where should we stay for the 3 nights, and why? Interlaken? Grindelwald? (I assume that these are reachable by train from Paris.)
      (2) should we do only day hikes, or is there an overnight hike which would fit our plans, and if so, which?
      (3) would we be missing much by taking the Jungfraujoch train vs. the Bernina or William Tell Express?

      Thanks very much for any advice you can offer!

    • one night layover in Zurich...itinerary question

      Zürich Mar 16, 2015 at 4:05 AM

      I'm arriving in Zurich at 9:40pm on a Wednesday evening in June, and flying out (back home to Canada) the next morning at 9:30am. I would love to check out Zurich in my limited time. I hope my plan is possible. Any advice?
      My tentative plan:

      Arrive and be out of the airport by 11pm (approx?)
      Take public transit to Zurich HB Stn
      Check into a hotel within 10-15 minutes walking distance from this station (possibly finding something under 200 CFH? Suggestions?)
      Walk around and check out the Old town, wander a bit and find some late night drinks and food - something with local feel (Suggestions?)
      Back to hotel to sleep for a couple hours, then grab a sunrise coffee and catch train back to airport at 6:30am (enough time for a 9:30am flight?)

      I really hope I can make this work. Thank you in advance for any feedback :)

      does golden pass only stop at OST station?

      Interlaken Mar 13, 2015 at 3:16 PM

      It seems, if so I need to find a hostel closer to OST and not west station, since my parents want somewhere close and not have to walk 15-20 mins if the location is closer to west station.

      I did not find anything on golden pass schedule that stop at west station.
      I want to make sure my observation is correct and it is best for me to find a hostel close to OST station.

      Short layover sufficient?

      Zürich Mar 2, 2015 at 4:07 AM

      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
