      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 ?

      Travel from Zurich to Zermatt

      Zermatt Jul 29, 2016 at 12:58 PM

      Hi, Can you help please. I have booked an apartment in Zermatt at end of April for my wifes 60th birthday and our wedding anniversary. We have never been to Switzerland before so some things I'm not sure of.
      I've not booked the flights yet but thought we would go to Zurich as apparantely there is a very scenic railway journey from there.
      Q1 Is the railway station near the airport? Q2 How often do they run? Q3 What as a couple can we expect to pay for a return ticket? Q4 Does it go direct to Zermatt or do we have to change? Q5 Do we buy this ticket in advance or can we just pay at the station? Q6 Looking at the map our apartment is 500 yards approx from the station in Zermatt. Do we walk from there and if so how will we find our apartment? staying at the Haus Roc.

      Sorry about all the questions and sorry if some sound stupid but just a little nervous that something might go wrong.

      Many thanks (-:

    • 2 Days in Zermatt

      Zermatt May 10, 2016 at 6:50 PM

      My son (18) is doing a trip to Europe this June, he will be flying from Prague to Zurich then traveling by train to Zermatt. (Having a hard time figuring out the timetables for the train), but it looks like the Swiss transfer ticket is his best option. He will be traveling solo and would like to ski while in Zermatt. Where is the best place to rent ski equipment? Best lodging options for a young adult? Should he rent ski equipment and book his hotel prior to arriving in Zermatt? He will arrive late Monday afternoon and plans on skiing Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. He has to be back in Zurich for a 6:45am flight on Thursday so he will be leaving Wednesday eafternoon. What is the latest train that runs from Zermatt to Zurich. Sorry for all the questions but I'm being a nervous Mom and this is his first trip to Europe:) so any advice/info would be appreciated! Thank you

    • Metal music bar in Brig

      Brig Sep 27, 2014 at 7:25 PM

      Hello local advisers,

      Last time I visited Brig I discovered a bar that was fun, but I've forgotten its name. I think its on the ground floor of a hotel near the main square. Metal music seems to be the theme, and at the time I visited last year you could smoke in there. Any idea where this place is?

      Many thanks
