    Still There after all those years


    In 1976, our itinerary said

    Tue Sep 28 - Leave Hauptbahnhof Trans European Express 10:23 arrive Innsbruck 12:13. Change trains and arr Zurich 6:52 - Astor Hotel

    Unique Quality: My grandmother wrote: The hotel in Zurich had token Louis XV chairs - all beautifully upholstered in goldish velvet.

    We can usually squeeze something into the refrigerators- they are all packed mini-bar equipment, so not much use to us.

    Well located cheap hotel


    Hotel is located less than one kilometer from the city centre. Rooms were tidy and staff was friendly. Street at the front of the hotel was noisy. That isn't wery good thing because there wasn't any air condition and we couldn't open windows.

Cheapest way to have a cell phone in Switzerland?

by RachelFersh

Hi all,

My Palm Pixi will not work in Switzerland and has no slot for a simcard. I'm told I can buy a disposable pay-as-you-go phone to use there? Does anyone know the most affordable way to do this? I don't need to call the US, just friends in Zurich and/or hotels, restaurants, etc.

Both Migros (a big supermarket chain) and the Swiss Post sell cheap pre-paid phones. Many Phone stores do too.
The Migros offer is 29,50 for a Nokia phone, including sim card and 15 sfr calling credit. The Swiss post has something similar.
You could also just enter any mobile phone shop.
The only problem is that in Switzerland mobile phone users must be registered. I don't know how this works when you don't have a permanent address in Switzerland.

No problem for anyone to get a phone (and/or SIM card) in Switzerland, but you will have to show your ID and register, whatever your country of residence.
It is correct that cell phone at Coop and Migros supermarkets are among the cheapest (you may also try the post office or InterDiscount shop).

Main problem: these pre-pay phones have SIMcard-blocker, i.e. can only be used with the respective Swiss operator. I personally would get a mobile phone without SIM-blocker, more expensive, but you can change SIM-cards as you like, anywhere in the world. Here again, InterDiscount is a good source for such phones.

Travel Tips for Zürich

Swiss Fondue

by jo104

When I was in Zurich we met some locals in a pub. It was the kind of sharing tables pub which was nice.

These boys advised us that if we do have a traditional swiss cheese fondue not to drink white wine like the restuarant suggest, instead order coca cola as this will line your stomach and protect against the richness of the cheese

The Snow laden Street

by Toyin

Davos is an interesting place to take a walk, this is because it is very boring to remain in the hotel room if you are less busy. Though the Bars are usually full, however, the smokings in the bars are a minus. This is because there is no ban on cigaret smoking here. Thus, I found myself on the snowy street. Usually, you must be well dress for outdoors, but its an interesting view if you do.

When living slightly outside of one of the allegedly most expensive cities of the world, one does not go that often to restaurants in town, even if Zürich has quite a choice of nice places.
Ask the outgoing and always smiling men manning the grill, and they’ll tell you that their bratwurst is for Zürich exactly what the Eiffel Tower is for Paris or the Golden Gate Bridge is for San Francisco. An icon

YES! Despite the fact Swiss Franc being national tender Euros are happily accepted in most places. ATMs accept most bankcards linked to Cirrus or Maestro. Tip is included in price at restaurants, hairdresser and taxi. If you feel some extra gratitude is due nobody will mind if you leave some change.

A 20 minute train ride from Zurich HB by S-Bahn, Uetilberg provides views of Zurich. The station has an information hut giving details of walks in the area, also there is a restaurant.

I took the trail from the station called Planetewag(Planet Path) it features models of the planets to a scale of 1:1 billion, Pluto is about 5km away. After about 10 minutes you'll reach the summit where there is a 30m viewing tower. Atop the tower you are at an altitude of 900m & there are amazing 360-degree views of Zurich.
