    • SIghtseeing in Interlaken with Elderly parents

      Interlaken Feb 10, 2015 at 10:31 AM

      I wonder how much walking is involved in Interlaken. I am traveling with my parents. My mother cannot walk for more than 250-300 metres. We will be visiting lakes and gardens with her. Generally I rent car to take her around. But it seems Switzerland is different. I see that most people recommend to use public transport in Interlaken and to visit nearby for sightseeing. But that would mean lot of walking after being dropped from bus or train. Are taxis readily available? Any suggestion to plan this travel will be appreciated.

    • Holiday in Switzerland & Heidelberg, Germany

      Geneva Feb 8, 2015 at 5:02 PM

      My family (2 seniors, 2 adults, 2 kids) will be arriving in Frankfurt airport from Malaysia on 30 May early morning. We plan to take a direct train from Frankfurt to Geneva on the same day.

      My queries are as follows:-

      1. Is it cheaper and better to buy the DB bahn tickets for Frankfurt - Geneva or use the swiss pass?

      2. We will be staying in Geneva from 30 May - 3 June (4 nights). We plan to buy the 8 day swiss pass.

      Then after that, we will be going to Grindelwald for 5 nights.

      We will leave Grindelwald early morning on 8 June (maybe make a stop in Spiez) to Heidelberg.

      Should I use the swiss pass from Grindelwald to Basel, then buy a train ticket to Heidelberg. If I buy SBB, do I get a discount (with my swiss pass) for Basel-Heidelberg.

      Or should I not use the swiss pass and instead buy a direct train ticket? This is because on our last day, we won't have much time to visit museums and do much.

      Sorry, I'm a bit confused .

      Thanks so much for your help!

      Warmest Regards.

      Elaine & family

      Wengen or Lauterbrunnen for base?

      Wengen Feb 25, 2015 at 5:02 AM

      Hi. I am planning our Eurotrip with my mom and one of our stops is Switzerland. I am torn whether to stay in Wengen or Lauterbrunnen. Based on my research, Wengen is higher than Lauterbrunnen. But aside from that, which do you think is a better base for 6 days?

      Also is 6 days too much? If we stay in Wengen, id there like a day pass for the train going up and down?

      Any feedback is much appreciated. Thanks!

      Zurich airport

      by adin Online Now 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?

      I am a photographer, so I am interested in finding day trips departing out of a Zurich base - in any direction. Have a SW rail pass, so should probably take advantage of that! :) Also considering one overnight trip into Austria. Have been to Innsbruck previously.

      Castles are nice but probably looking more for wine or lakes, etc. Have done numerous castle ventures.

    • 5 Hours between Flights at Zurich Airport

      by DuncanH4 Online Now May 30, 2014 at 11:19 AM


      I am a US citizen and I booked a flight from Boston to Barcelona via Zurich on Swiss airlines. My layover in Zurich is 5 hours. I am wondering if I have enough time to quickly enjoy Zurich before I depart for Barcelona. I've read that by train, it is about 10-15 minutes to Zurich.

      A few questions...

      1. Will my luggage go straight to Barcelona as I am booked to Barcelona on the same airline (Swiss) or will I have to get my luggage and re-check it in?

      2. If my luggage is indeed going all the way through to Barcelona, can I go through passport control and exit the airport even though my check in luggage is still at the airport?

      3. For a 16:00 Swiss flight from Zurich to Barcelona, what time should I plan on arriving at the Zurich airport?

      I understand that under the very best circumstances, my time in Zurich will be very limited. Even just an hour to walk around would make it worth it to me.
