      - quaint villages
      - glaciers, ice caves
      - pretty castles
      - decent public transport

    • Skiing at the Matterhorn in Early June

      by DCIdaho8 Online Now 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.

      visit to europe

      by trdmeier Online Now Jun 26, 2014 at 6:27 AM

      August 2015 we are taking a Rhine Cruise leaving from Basel, Switz. We love scenery and mts. Wanted to come to Europe before the cruise with our son and his wife. We are seniors and they are in their 30's. I thought possibly London, then Paris, then Basel. Switz. seems to offer so much. Suggestions?

    • Driving through the Alps in April

      by ell369 Online Now Jan 2, 2012 at 7:36 AM

      Hi folks

      My girlfriend and I are planning a very long trip around Central and Northern Europe in our campervan. We have done alot of research, but the Alps is something we need a little help with. What are the driving and weather conditions like during April? We plan to travel from place to place in the camper, stopping to do outdoor activities like hiking. We don't mind it being cold, but I'd rather the roads weren't either closed or dangerous whilst in an old VW!

      Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

      by lvpool05 Online Now Feb 18, 2011 at 7:34 AM

      1) What is the highest point that you can drive up to around the Bernese Oberland without using cable car or train?

      2) What is the weather like during the middle of May around the Bernese Oberland? Temperature and rainfall?

      Cheers

    • Help on swiss passes

      by AmyKitchen Online Now Feb 5, 2011 at 3:04 AM

      Hello, We are driving over to Switzerland this July and using Interlaken as our base for 9 days, during this we have booked one night in Zermatt. We intend on using swiss transport whilst there, but are totally confused at which pass to buy. There's the swiss youth pass (we're 23) but then there are also the 'Jungfrau Region 6 Day Pass' and 'The Adventure Card Upper Valais - Uri - Grisons pass'.
      Basically, we want the pass (or passes) that give us the cheapest travel for traveling:
      from Interlaken to Zermatt,
      Harder Kulm,
      Schynige Platte,
      Jungfraujoch (Top),
      Luzern
      and Grindelwald.
      But we are then driving over to Davos for 3 days and will be using swiss transport there too.
      I cant seem to find anything about what discounts or free usage you can get on any cable cars etc (as we'll be using them a lot)
      Can anyone help?
      Many thanks!
      Amy

    • Base in Lucerne

      by mark711 Online Now Nov 29, 2005 at 7:05 AM

      Hi all,

      I'd be making a trip to Lucerne this December and would like to go to the Swiss Alps. Is it possible to base myself at Lucerne and make a day trip to the Alps or do I have to stay at one of those Alps resorts?

      Thanks!
