      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 ?

      One Night or 2 in St Moritz pre Glacier Express Train

      by Mikebb Online Now May 9, 2014 at 8:25 PM

      We are travelling from Rome to St Moritz on 24th June and intend travelling on the Glacier Express to Zermatt.

      Would like to know the "must see" attractions in St Moritz and if they are within walking distance or public transport.

      Is St Moritz a compact town? Would an overnight stay be sufficient?

      Any recommendation for good 3 star accommodation, reasonable price, walking distance from rail station. Is the rail station near town centre.

      Can we purchase Glacier Express rail ticket on day of travel or afternoon before? What is cheapest 2 or 3 day Swiss pass and will it be accepted for use on the Glacier Express?

      We most likely will have 2 night stay in Zermatt , any hotel recommendations and then travel to Montreux or Geneva for 1 night as we need a train connection to Paris

      I believe there is a French Rail Pass which is accepted on Swiss Rail, minimum 4 day pass. As we are travelling onto Paris this may be a better option if it is accepted on the Glacier Express without an excessive gap charge.

      Appreciate all replies.

    • Travel from Milan to St Moritz

      by saviaje Online Now Jan 31, 2011 at 8:32 AM

      I am arriving in Milan on a flight from the US; arrival is 8AM on 27 Feb (that's a Sunday). I need to be in Sils Maria (outside St Moritz) for a meeting the next morning at 8:30AM; so, I need to arrive in St Moritz the evening of 26 Feb, but want to spend as much time as possible in Milan on 27 Feb (sigthseeing!).

      I think I can rent a taxi / car service for approximately350 Euros for a one way trip from Milan to Sils Maria; but, I would rather take a train if it's reliable. There are trains leaving Milan at 4 and 5PM on 27 Feb, and arriving in St Moritz later that evening. These trains look like a good option - but they have a few transfers without much time in between trains. Also, there may be a bus journey included as well. I'm concerned that if I miss a transfer then I won't be able to arrive in St Moritz that evening (which is essential - since I need to be at a meeting in Sils Maria on 28 Feb early in the morning). I would appreciate any insights about the train trip, the reliability, and risk of missing a transfer (for example, because the 1st train on the journey is late). Thank you.

      We plan to go up to the top of Corvatsch by the cable car , if the weather is OK.

      Tickets prices are not cheap so that we wonder if it's worth a visit?

      Is the climbing up by the car a good experience?

      What about view from the top of it ?

    • Bernina Express

      by katie9922 Online Now Jun 11, 2008 at 8:12 PM

      I have checked the dates for the Bernina Express - it appears it runs on a winter timetable from 20 Oct to 13 Dec and the summer timetable from 10 May to 20 Oct. Does this mean it doesn't run from 13 Dec to 10 May? We are looking to visit next year either March, April, May or June. Is any particular one of these months better than another for sightseeing? Also is one section of the Bernina Express line more scenic than another - could we just do the section from St Moritz to Lugano or is the more scenic section from Chur to St Moritz. Any help with this would be appreciated. Thanks.

      by vidyatrips Online Now Jun 16, 2007 at 11:59 AM

      Hi all,

      Me and my husband are going for our "babymooning" trip to Swiss and Austria. We have planned for 3 nights in St Moritz. We will be getting there from Zermatt on the Glacier Express. And plan to fit in Bernina Exp in one of the 3 days we will be there. Want to spend the other two days exploring the region and small villages near-by. That is the broad plan we have for the region.

      Now for the issue - we are not able to find any b&b or affordable hotel in this area. The ones we checked out are either booked out or are too expensive. Any pointers to smaller, affordable and clean hotels? Our budget is in the range of E90-130 per night.

      Thanks & Rgds,
