Two Weeks in Zurich and Lucerne  (2 Answers)

We are planning to spend two weeks in Switzerland in early June before we leave for Italy--one week in Zurich and the other in Lucerne. Will we be able to explore the high Alps from these two locations or would we be better to stay in other areas that would have major transportation connections for day trips as we will be using public transportation. We were hoping to stay in the Old Town of Zurich in an apartment or efficiency for one week and then move to Lucerne for the second week. Would appreciate any help before we purchase our plane tickets to Zurich.

You help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Zurich tour  (1 Answer)

I will be in Zurich in early Sept and will be staying in Zurich for 3 ful days. I plan to go to Lucerne to enjoy magnificent Alpine view. Apart from that i also plan to go to Lauterbrunnen (via Interlaken) or Interlaken, but I am wondering if it is too much for Alpine sightseeing as it seems that Lucerne might overlap with Interlaken as both are Alpine views. I am thinking if Interlaken can be swapped with another city tour i.e. Lausanne, Geneva, Basel, etc. What do you think?

Also, when touring Zurich city, a day pass covering subway, tram, bus available? how much?

Ski resorts within 2/2.5 hours from Zurich by train -intermediate skier  (6 Answers)

Hi all

I'll be in Zurich for work in January or february and it seems criminal not to stay for the weekend and ski a bit.

I'm an intermediate skier, comfortable with up to red pistes. I can do black pistes if not icy but I'd prefer to avoid them. I'll be on a moderate budget so will not be looking at four star resort/accomodation, this will be closer to a two-star budget.

I have researched a bit and there seems to be a lot of ski resorts that can be accessed by train or train + bus. The ones I have noticed are: Davos, Engelberg, Laax and Klosters. I have a slight preference for Engelberg which seems a bit cheaper in term of ski pass (I'll be there two days so while I want a good total length of pistes, I don't need 400kms!)

Any idea which would be easiest to reach on a Friday evening? Maybe one of these is v. nera teh rail station while others need a bus transfer? Any particular recommendations or warnings?

Many thanks!

Q   a VirtualTourist member asked a question · April 14, 2009
2 nights in May


My wife and I will be in Zurich for about 48 hours - arriving about 11 a.m. on May 17 and leaving on a 10:30 a.m. flight on May 19. We were thinking of spending May 17 touring the city and its immediate surroundings, and then taking a day excursion to Jungfraujoch on May 18 by train.

We're still unsure if a day trip to Jungfraujoch is a wise idea (at almost 230 USD per person in just train tickets). If not, what would be a better way to spend the day? We've heard about trips to the Rhine Falls or touring the towns of Bern / Lucerne or then the "Golden Round Trip" to Mt. Pilatus as possible alternatives.

We are essentially looking for activities that give us a reasonably good feel for both, the city and the countryside, within 48 hours without it being too strenuous. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Thank you very much.

5 days stay in Zürich  (3 Answers)

Hi all,

we are visiting Zürich from 15.01 and are staying there for 5 days. We plan to stay in Zürich but make some short stays to other cities. I have some questions:
1. Is a day ticket for 8 CHF valid for the whole city of Zürich? Also airport? Or we should choose something else? We just want to hang around a bit, see how the city looks like, not more.
2. We would like a one day trip to mountains, looking for nice views. What would you advise? How long do you travel there approximately?
3. What other cities are advisable to see in winter? Geneva? Luzern? Lausanne? Something else?...

Thank you very much in advance!

Best Wishes,

Zurich airport parking  (9 Answers)


We will very likely need to leave our car at Zurich Airport for about 2.5 weeks while we go on holiday. I've had a look at their website and it appears that they have long-term parking at P60. Unfortunately all info regarding it is in German (which I don't speak). I have put the text through an on-line translator and I know it's saying something abt how to get from the parking lot to the airport using the bus service - that's the part of the translation I can't figure out! Could someone please help? Text as follows:

Der Parkplatz liegt etwa zehn Gehminuten von den Flughafenanlagen entfernt. Bis zur Haltestelle «Werft» der Buslinien 732, 759 und 768 sind es nur etwa 100 Schritte. Die Busse bringen Sie alle 15 Minuten direkt zum Busbahnhof am Flughafen, direkt über dem Check-in 3. Der Parkplatz P60 eignet sich auch für Fahrzeuge mit Überhöhe. Die Benutzung des Parkplatzes erfolgt auf eigene Gefahr.

Thanks so much for any help!

From Zurich to Ravensburg, GER  (1 Answer)

Hello, I'll be traveling around Eastern europe in July, and I'll be catching a traing from Ljubljana, Slovenia, towards Zurich (around 39 EU, according to the website). Then I need to go to Ravensburg to meet a friend, and she told me that instead of the direct train, I should get to Konstanz and take the ferry across the lake to Friedrichschafen, where she can pick me up. What do u think? is it much cheaper that way than taking a train to Ravensburg? I bet is more fun, but any word of wisdom on this?
