      Exchanging money at Zurich airport

      Zürich Jan 30, 2017 at 8:16 AM

      I ve tried to look up the exchange rates but all the money exchangers at the Zurich airport website link to their parent company . Is it better to take swiss francs from Canada or exchange the money upon arrival at Zurich ? I will need some cash rightaway at the airport but other than that , I can wait until I get into the city and try and get a better rate to get cash for hotel and train tix .
      Is there somewhere to find out the ongoing exchange rates ?

    • Swiss Travel Pass Query

      Switzerland Jan 24, 2017 at 11:01 PM

      I will be arriving to Zurich and taking the train to Lucerne after arrival. I will be in Lucerne for about a week, including day trips. From Lucerne I will be travelling to Colmar in France.

      My question is - if I buy an 8 day Swiss Pass does it include the travel from Zurich to Lucerne, all the day trips from Lucerne and the Swiss train travel part on the way to Colmar (till Basel)? I'm just asking because i understand that not all routes are included in the pass and I don't want any surprises.

      Thank you

      Ballenberg Museum with small child

      by travelfrosch Online Now Mar 24, 2013 at 6:13 AM

      Any thoughts about taking a 3-year-old to Ballenberg? Minifrosch has a pretty good attention span for his age and likes to do a lot of walking (though we'd bring a small stroller just in case). Also, is it practical to walk to the museum entrance from the Brienzweiler train station, or is it best to take the bus from Brienz? Thanks for the help!

    • Getting to Grandhotel Giessbach?

      by isb2cewl Online Now Jul 20, 2006 at 6:17 AM

      I am clueless as how to get to Grandhotel Giessbach. I was wondering, how can you get there by train from Geneva? Would I have to switch trains at some point to get directly to the hotel? They have forgotten to include directions on their website, and I am american and have no clue!!!
      Thanks for your response,
