5 Day trip in Zurich, including a couple od days skiing

by DEE1323

HI am taking my partner on a surprise trip to Zurich for his birthday from 22.02.11 return 28.02.11

Would anyone be able to help with the following?

Accommodation:where to stay (on a budget here). I have never been on a skiing holiday, but my partner has when he was younger. The plan would be to Ski for a couple of days and then the sight see for the remaining. also what would i need to bring with me? (in terms of gear and clothing)

I have been looking into the following areas:
grindlewald
Wangan
st Moritz

but still not to sure of where to stay. we are looking for somewhere that has good food, transport convenience, and reasonable night life. any recommendations for our short visit there would be appreciated.

also we are arriving into Zurich at 10pm at night therefore if anyone could advise how to get to the above locations at this time of night then that would be great.

If you have never been skiing before or are at beginner level perhaps try to find which place has the best beginner slopes too, some areas are either intermediate or advanced level. I would look at package deals if at all possible in your timeframe as then lessons, ski hire, accommodation is included.
When I was last in St Moritz it was hellishly expensive and really only for the rich and famous, but in Switzerland everything was very expensive and I assume you have already arranged to go there. I have done a ski package in Austria and that was excellent value.
I wouldn,t actually put "Switzerland" and "on a budget" in the same sentence.
Just take usual winter clothing with you as all ski gear including ski clothing can be hired.

Arriving at 10.00pm in Zurich ?
Forget about going anywhere else that night, stay in Zurich instead !
2 days of skiing: Engelberg comes into my mind
Wengen is carfree, has a good nightlife and great surrounding, but you cannot reach it that late !
St.Moritz is even more expensive than the average swiss locations, and not worth the trouble in my opinion
Grindelwald is nice as well
ski-gear can be rented in all these places

Travel Tips for Zürich

Lakeside promenades and parks

by german_eagle

Everyone in Zürich, whether local or tourist, seems to be drawn to the lake. I was fortunate to have perfect weather during the long weekend I was there in summer 2010, with warm and sunny days and mild nights. Only the last evening we had thunderstorms and rain.

Anyway, I noticed that the lake shore is dotted with promenades and parks, public beaches, harbours where yachts and boats bob up and down on the water. It has a sort of "Wow"-effect when you walk down the Bahnhofstrasse to the lake and at once you stand at Bürkliplatz with the panoramic views of the lake right there and the snow-capped Alps in the distance. Very nice to stroll along is also the right shore of the lake between Zürichhorn and Bellevue square. On the left bank I enjoyed the walk from beach Mythenquai via Arboretum and General-Guisan-Quai to Bürkliplatz.

The promenades might not be dotted with as much flowers as in Montreux, for example, and the mountains in the distance are not as impressive as at Lucerne's promenade - but it is still a very nice way to spend your time and of course it is a great place for people watching

go to the mountains. Both...

by Lozza_9

go to the mountains. Both when its Snowning and Sunny. The views are fanastic. The picture attached is of me in the same place but one picture was taken when it was snowing (Dec 2000) and the other picture was taken when it was nice and suuny (Summer 2001) at the very top of the mountain. Having the best snow ball fight I have had on the mountain.

Probably of Carolingian...

by Volare

Probably of Carolingian origin, the Grossmünster with its distinctive twin spires is the symbol of the city. The oldest parts (the crypts) date from the late 11th and early 12th centuries. The remains of the roman transverse, with a 12th century sculpture, are especially worth seeing. A funny story on this church is that its two towers were build by two different very reach Swiss families of that time. They wanted to show to everybody the boundaries of its wealth. In order to do so one family built its tower higher than the other.

"Cervelat" a typical Swiss sausage

by yumyum

This sausage is shorter than a Bratwurst and brownish in colour. It has a specific taste and it can either be eaten cold, boiled or grilled. Of course, the grilled version is the best and in summer when people barbeque in the forests and parks on an open fire, then they cut in both ends about 3 cm deep in a cross and stick the sausage on a self-made spit from a bush or tree and then it gets 8 legs through the heat.

Watch a Icehockey Game

by Carino

ZSC Lions will play in the newly renovated Hallenstadion (they might change the name) starting Season 2005/2006. This season they play in a very small Stadion called Kunsteisbahn KEB. Check out zsclions.ch for more information.

Just a few minutes by train there is another (good) Team playing: Kloten Flyers is playing at the Schluefweg Stadion in Kloten.
