    • Planning BERN

      Bern Jul 21, 2016 at 4:31 AM

      Greetings . We are family of 5 (3 teen age children and 2 adults), looking to visit Switzerland. Pressed on time, do you think one a half day is sufficient to see the highlights of Bern? We have the following plan in place. 1. How doable is this plan? 2. Anything worthy missing? 3. Do you suggest to take something out? 4.Should we factor in any cost for the below suggestions? PLAN: Most scenic WALKS: a. along the banks of the Aare through the English gardens b. Popular Streets: Spitalgasse, Marktgasse, Kramgasse, Gerechtikkeitsgasse c. Major Square: Theatreplatz, Kornhausplatz, Ogre Fountain , Rathausplatz d. Major Bridge: Kirchenfeldbrucke, Kornhausbrucke, Lorainebrucke e. Most panoramic attraction atop Mount Gurten. f. Most obvious place to start walk: from Bahnhofplatz, down the Spitalgasse, under the prison tower, into the Marketgasse, and then on by way of the clock tower and the Kramgasse. From the end of the street, by the Nydeggbrucke (bridge, which gives a really good view down on to the roofs of the old town) either go over the bridge to the bear pit, or turn back through the Junkerngasse, turn let and come back via Rathausgasse. g. Rosengarten

    • Transportation from the Airport Train Station to the Hotel Rotary Geneva

      Geneva Jul 14, 2016 at 12:26 PM

      We arrive at the train station from Basel on August 17th around noon with luggage. I'm thinking the best way to get to Hotel Rotary on Rue Du Cendrier is by taxi. Does anyone know the approximate cost of the taxi trip or have a better idea for transport?

    • Planning Interlaken

      Switzerland Jul 21, 2016 at 5:10 AM

      Greetings . We are family of 5 (3 teen age children and 2 adults), looking to visit Switzerland.

      I have set aside 4.5 days inclusive of checkin and checkout. Is it more then sufficient or just enough for the following plan?


      1. Up and down to the Brienzer Rothorn by steam train (is this a day long trip, and what is the associated cost?)
      2. Take cabin ride from Grindelwald to Mannlichen and walk to Kleine Scheideck (is this a day long trip, and what is the associated cost?)
      3. Murren-Allmendhubel cableway. Depart from Northwestern edge of Murren. At the destination enjoy the panoramic view of lauterbrunnen.
      4. Wengen: Trummelbach Falls.
      5. Baregg-stieregg walk: highly recommended. 1 hour walk but set aside 1 day

      a. How doable is this plan?
      b. Anything worthy missing?
      c. Do you suggest to take something out, if it's less attractive or similar to an existing attraction?
      d. What costs should we factor in for the above suggestions?
      e. For each listed attraction, is it a day long activity or less?


    • Car Rental vs Public Transportation

      Switzerland Jul 21, 2016 at 5:17 AM


      Is renting car for 6-7 days more economical than public transpo, taking into account we are a family of 5, and will start our trip from Zurich airport and go straight to Bern, followed by Interlaken, Lucerne and back in Zurich (to catch the flight out)?

      If renting car is advisable, what is a good choice (value for money)?

      My friends will travel from Milan to Lugano Railway station. From there , they will need to go to the Agno Airport to catch a flight. Since they will have quite some luggage, would you recommend them to take a Taxi, or the FLP train till Agno station?
      - How much should a taxi cost from Lugano station to the Agno Airport?
      - If they travel by train, would it be easy to go to the airport from Agno station with all the luggage by foot or by taxi?

      Train Travel Lugano to St Moritz, Glacier Express to Zermatt, the Geneva?

      by Mikebb Online Now May 10, 2014 at 10:22 PM

      I have just found out how to travel from Rome to Lugano by train. I actually wish to travel to Saint Moritz for an overnight stay before travelling on the Glacier Express train to Zermatt for 2 night stay and then train to Montreau or Geneva ( maybe overnight stay and then train to Paris.

      Would Swiss Rail Pass - 3 days be the best for:
      - Lugano to Saint Moritz

      - St Moritz to Zermatt on the Glacier Express

      - Zermatt to Geneva

      - Would there be any additional payment when the Swiss Card is used for the glacier Express?

      - Is 2 nights essential in Zermatt?

      - Any recommendations for good accommodation with bathroom (3 star min) and close to rail station for Lugano, St Moritz, Zermatt, and Geneva

      Train To Paris.
      Will the Swiss Card cover this trip or should I book through the French Rail System? Have travelled previously Paris to Basel.

      Appreciate all advice.

      Lugano and William Tell Express

      We have three nights in Lugano in mid-May. I had planned two days of walks and maybe a little sailing, but then noticed the William Tell Express. Would it be worth it to spend one day doing the WT as a round trip - or are the views in Lugano somewhat representative of the rest of the trip? We will be coming from Milan.
      Any extra comments or Lugano tips welcome. ps. we are not nightclubbers.
