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 (-:
Hi - My wife and myself , we are arriving in Interlaken from Paris .. Train arrives in Interlaken OST . Wondering if it is safe to walk to a near by hotel /stay at midnight ..
If so , any places one could suggest . My travel would be in 2nd weekend of August.
We just need a place to stay overnight and wouldn't want to splurge on any luxury .. Cause we would be packing in the morning , travel around and catch a evening train to lucerne.
In one day , any places one could suggest to see ? I heard the ride to Gimmewald is amazing .
Is there any place around which you can dance with music of the sixties / oldies?
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)?
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?
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.

We'll be in Lucerne from 7/23/16 to 7/26/16. Does it make sense to book the "Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe from Lucerne Tour" in advance or should we wait until we arrive and see what the weather is like? We were thinking of taking the tour on 7/24.

Secondly I'm pretty confused what clothes to pack . Would we need a lot of woollens? We plan to travel end July until 1st week August. And lastly what kind of shoes to carry ? TIA

Travel from interlaken early morning to kreuzlingen via zurich working on this taking 3 1/2 hrs then take the boat cruise to Schaffhausen and visit the Rhine Falls depending on time take train back with possibility of stopping in Zurich.

Can anyone please advise the best way to book the chocolate train from montreux? I'm trying to book through Golden pass and it's coming up cheaper for VIP than normal tickets.
