Swiss knowledge and help required

by 2011Casey999

I am currently planning a trip in 2011 and I have allocated 7 days to travel through Switzerland. Can someone advise me how to proceed, what towns / cities to allocate time to and possible don't miss highlights I should include. I would like my daughter (9 yrs - keen athlete) to travel the Jungfrau or the equivalent. Thanking any assistance.

My wife and I enjoyed 4 days in Switzerland a few years ago. We spent one afternoon in Bern, took the train from there to Lauterbrunnen. While there we went up to Schilthorn which has the view of Jungfrau, walked the Lauterbrunnen Valley and Murren above the valley. Went paragliding And then took the train for a day in Luzern.

Since you are new here if you click on my name in this forum it will take you to my home page here on VT and then on the right side you will see places I've been. Click on any of those and you will go to a particular city.

Also on my home page are 3 links to videos. One is of our paragliding trip, one is the trip up to Schilthorn and the other is the train ride from Lauterbrunnen to Lucerne.

Hope this help a and let me know if you need more info.

Lucerne is a great base and you can travel by train or boat to plenty of wonderful places. Having been to the German and Italian parts of Switzerland I have to say that the Bernese Oberland is the better area to visit but you can`t really go wrong in Switzerland except for the weather occasionally.:-)

Re: Swiss knowledge and help required

Could you give us a bit more information about your trip?

When are you coming to Switzerland? (knowing the season is important to be able to give some advice)
What other places do you intend to visit in Europe? (so we can steer you aways from places in Switzerland that are very similar to places you've already seen...)
How will you arrive in Switzerland, and how will you leave? (If you entry and exit point are not the same that determines partly the route you will take...)

We're glad to help you here.

I do agree with IanMacPhail that Lucerne is a great base location to explore the rest of Switzerland.

Weather you want to go for Mountains, Lakes or Cities. Lucerne is never far away from them.
Just be prepared that travelling up a mountain by train is not cheap.

When are you comeing?

Climbing Mt. Pilatus was one...

by sonnyfl

Climbing Mt. Pilatus was one of the greatest experiences of my life. The physical challenge of making it to the top plus to views that one takes in on the mountain and at the top make it a very special memory. The views of the surrounding mountians and lake Lucerne is out of the world. Climbing Mt. Pilatus is definitely my fondest memory.

Bourbaki Panorama

by Fam_Stoica

This huge round painting (over 1000 sqm) depicts the retreat of the defeated French Eastern Army in the winter of the Franco-Prussian War (1870-1871) at Les Verrieres in Switzerland.

Endless convoys of freezing, hungry and wounded soldiers are shown crossing the border under General Bourbaki - a moving picture of the miseries of war. The naturalistic masterpiece is the work of the Genevese painter of war scenes Edouard Castres and ten collaborators (among them Ferdinand Hodler) and was created in 1881. It was originally exhibited in Geneva and came to Lucerne in 1889. The plastic effect was achieved by painting technique alone, and the picture is supported by life-sized figures, weapons and other artifacts. Contact information :

The bridge built in 1333, is about 200 metres long and has 120 captioned paintings chronicling the city's past history.It was nearly destroyed by a fire in 1993 and I was told that what stands today is an exact reconstruction.

The adjacent Water Tower was said to be a lighthouse...and thats how Lucerne came to be called.

Lucerne Tip

by Krystynn

The lovely art work found at the Kapellbrücke. As you walk along the bridge, the first thing that will capture your attention is the over 100 or so captioned triangular paintings. Dating back from as early as the 1500s, it gives a brilliant chronicle of the city's rich history. If you look even closer, you'll notice that these gorgeous paintings feature the patron saints of Lucerne - St. Mauritius and St. Leodegar. Was I impressed? You bet.
