    • Marriage Witness

      Interlaken 3 hours ago

      Hi guys.
      My Fiancé and I are planning on our marriage in Interlaken in January 2017.
      She has a dream of having , her exact word: happily married elder couple, to be our witness. She believes it is the best blessing for our marriage.
      I understand this could be very difficult because we don't know anyone in Switzerland and we are traveling to Interlaken all by ourselves. But I still want to make it happen because it is like the only thing she asks for the wedding.
      If anyone could think of anything or anyone that can help me to find such married couple who can witness our wedding, please leave a comment or send me an email via

      Thank you very much.

      Kind regards,

    • St Moritz train travel and accomodation

      Switzerland Yesterday

      We are a couple of Australians who will be in Salzburg for two days and have booked a rail ticket for the 28th Oct that is not refundable to Thun via Munich, Zurich and Bern for Euro138 for both of us (1st class).
      It has now been suggested to us that we travel from Salzburg to St Moritz via Landeck and overnight in St Moritz and the next day travel to Thun via Andermatt.
      We were wondering if the suggestion should be considered and we waste the existing ticket. I tried to look at fares from Salzburg on 28th October to St Moritz on the sbb website but it was saying it was too close to travel date to quote price?
      We have lots of time to stay in Thun so don't know if St Moritz is something worth seeing from Thun later during our stay.
      If the St Moritz overnight trip is best done on the way to Thun any suggestions of hotels in St Moritz that are close to station.
      Any suggestions or help with trips from Thun as day or overnight would be appreciated.

      Travel from Zurich to Zermatt

      by petelegg Online Now 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

      by Rltiller Online Now 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
