Flying to Zurich: Can we see French and Italian areas too?

by RachelFersh

Hi Everyone,

My boyfriend and I have two weeks in Switzerland, flying in and out of Zurich. It's his first time in Europe, so I'm eager to give him some diverse experiences. Is it feasible to make it to Geneva and Ticino without too much rushing?

We also want to spend most of our time in Zurich, and visit Bern, Luzern, and somewhere with a castle (Lichtenstein?). We would so appreciate any advice on what to prioritize! Also, on the most cost-effective train choice.

Thanks so much!

-Rachel

With two weeks I don't think you'll have any difficulty visiting other parts of Switzerland.

You can find train times, details and fares in English here;

http://www.sbb.ch/en/

and information on the Swiss Card (which may well be worth purchasing, depending on what travel you decide to do) here:

https://www.sbb.ch/mct/wi/shop/b2c/tree.do?key=40

There are a lot of castles in Switzerland. Here's a list:

Having been to none, I can't make personal recommendations......but I'm sure other members will come along soon and do so. :-)

Forget about Liechtenstein, Vaduz is a dull place on a totally uninteresting piece of land. Bern and Luzern are very good choices. Trains in Switzerland are very frequent and relatively fast (the distances are short), so you would be able to reach Geneva on a day trip. I then suggest that you start from Luzern and go the spectacular line Luzern - Interlaken Ost - Spiez - Zweisimmen - Montreux - Geneva. Then you can take the faster line Geneva - Visp - Bern to Bern. Not many castles in Switzerland, but a wonderful old hotel at the Brienzersee, Hotel Giessbach; http://www.giessbach.ch/en/the_grandhotel/about.php, close to Brienz on the Luzern - Interlaken line.

Have a look at www.myswitzerland.com
I think that you would benefit from having a Swiss Card for travelling by boat or train. Switzerland is ideal for doing day trips and Zurich or Lucerne would be a nice base. I have also been to Lugano in the Ticino and it`s nice but generally I think that the German speaking part is nicer. I haven`t been to the French speaking area yet.
Switzerland is a great place but it can be wet, be prepared! :-)

I do not agree with IndianPacific's comment that there aren't many castles in Switzerland.
There are a lot of castles.
Ticino, specially Bellinzona has 3 worthwhile visiting castles.
2 of them are easy to reach.
Info's here:

If you have sopecific questions felle free to email me.

Happy travellung

I withdraw that statement!

Wiki has a nice list with all the castles in Switzerland:

About castles in Switzerland, I have a special liking for the one in Thun. It is not far from Bern by train.
Since you wish to see the diversity of Switzerland, I suggest to include Neuchatel to your trip: it is probably the most "French" city in Switzerland. Geneva is beautiful, but it has a more international flavour.

Travel Tips for Zürich

Zurich is the place to go

by Rina120

Zurich is clean, beautiful, curlturally diverse, alive in all types of weather, visually stunning and simply a great city! Dining on Nederforstrasse and people watching. THis is definately the street to sit and sip on a coffee or a beer. Tons of people to watch and see. At christmas time, the streets are adorned with lights and merchants. There are hidden alleywayswith restaurants, cafes, and stores just waiting to be explored.
On saturday by the market, thereis live music with these two guys. ONe plays a cello, the other the oboe. It's just wonderful to sit and listen to while drinkingin your surroundings.

Outside Zurich

by Toyin

Zurich is interesting, however, there are spectacular towns and villages outside Zurich that makes Swiss a delight for tourists. A drive from Zurich to Davos is what I would recomend for any one planning to go to Zurich.

It is about two hours during winter, as you must drive with utmost care. The hotels here in Davos are a little expensive, so I recommend you base in Zurich and make a day run and back.

Street Parade

by HORSCHECK

The Street Parade is nowadays the largest technoparade in the world and also the largest annual event in Zurich.

It usually takes place around the corner of Lake Zurich on the second Saturday in August.

The motto of the 16th Street Parade in August 2007 was "Respect". It was attended by about 800.000 young people. Techno and dance music was offered by various Love Mobiles and from five stages.

Among the top artists of the 2007 Street Parade was the German Top DJ Paul van Dyk.

Though Zurich is a great...

by Michael_D

Though Zurich is a great jump-off point for places like Kloten and Zug..I find that Bern is a better central base-point for seeing a greater variety of sights. I always visit Zurich, but I stay in Bern/Interlaken as a rule.Switzerland ranks as my favorite travel destination. Its natural beauty , excellent services and ease of getting around is a huge plus.

The only downside is it is a bit expensive..oh not Scandanavian/expensive..but pretty close.Switzerland is one country where reasearching bed/breakfasts and hostels will pay off if you are on a budget. If youre hearty enough and the weather co-operates it may be the best camping in all of Europe.

Blinde Kuh Restaurant

by Dyesebel

Well.well! It's a unique Restaurant.Getting a table there is as hard as learning German Language;) But it's really worth it.But don't be surprise if you go out of that restaurant and you have stain in your clothes.This place has no lights inside!
