    • 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

    • 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?

      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?

      Thanks

    • 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?

    • Car Rental vs Public Transportation

      Switzerland Jul 21, 2016 at 5:17 AM

      Greetings

      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)?

      Thanks

    • Lucerne-Murren Swiss Flexi Pass Day Travel

      by mohit9382 Online Now Apr 18, 2014 at 10:04 AM

      Hi All,
      We are in Lucerne and travelling to Murren tomorrow. We will be staying there for 3 days. We have a Swiss Felx Pass for 4 days (non consecutive). We will be validating the pass tomorrow for our travel to Murren. I am aware that it takes around 3 hours to reach Murren from Lucerne. So if we were to make an early start around 8-9AM, then is there something we can visit tomorrow before/after checking in our Murren hotel. This will allow us to maximise the usage of our Swiss pass.
      Also, can you please advise what can we do in Murren for the other 2 days without using the Swiss pass ? For one of the days we have booked a Paragliding experience. We were were planning to hike the village of Gimmewald. Any other suggestions ?
      Appreciate your help.
      Cheers,
      Mo

      Cheapest train fares in Switzerland

      by cheezecake_deli Online Now May 30, 2013 at 10:53 PM

      My family and I (two adults and one 5-year old child) are planning a long weekend in the summer in Switzerland. We will be flying into Geneva, spending one night in Bern, and then two nights in Murren in the Bernese Oberland, before departing from Geneva again. I can't figure out the cheapest rail options for this itinerary (Geneva Airport-Bern-Murren return) - there seems to be a plethora of rather confusing half-fare travelcards and inter-regional travelcards! Can anyone help? Thank you.

      Travelling to the Jungfrau region in February

      by jessicax0 Online Now Jan 19, 2012 at 6:26 PM

      Hi,

      Im travelling around Europe and will be staying in Interlaken for a few days mid February. A friend of mine suggested doing the walk from Murren to Gimmelwald which she believes is only 30 or so minutes (which is great cause im not an experienced hiker). Is this type of thing doable considering the time of year? And is there a lot of signage around to point you on the right path?

      Thanks :)

      How to travel cheaply in canton of Bern?

      by nedmsp Online Now May 21, 2011 at 6:03 PM

      My wife and I stayed in Murren for about 7 days last year (September 2010), and we checked out most things in and around Interlaken. One thing that gave us the price shock was the public transportation or moving around cost (train, bus, and aerial tramway, funicular). We love Murren and plan to visit Murren again (September 2011) and would like to find out the inexpensive way to move around in canton of Bern, specifically around Thun, Interlaken, Brienz, Lauterbrunnen. Thank you in advance.

    • Early travel from Murren to Lauterbrunnen

      by lcraw Online Now Apr 27, 2011 at 9:01 PM

      We are going to be staying in Murren for several days. On our last day, we'd like to catch the 7:33am train from Lauterbrunnen in order to make our way to Munich. Do the Murren train and Grutshalp cable car run early enough to make that 7:33am train from Lauterbrunnen? This is on a Sunday morning in May. Thank you for your help.

      They are also looking at, if its possible for a chairlift going from Schiltgrat upto Birg ?!?!
