should I buy a rail pass

by mxcc

When in switzerland I will be traveling from the airport to my destination and back. I may travel 1 or 2 other days but no more than that. Is there any way to find out how much individual tickets cost so I can compare the price to the rail passes?

Re: should I buy a rail pass

It depends on how far you're traveling. If you're traveling far to and from the airport, but only taking short trips otherwise, you might want to try the Swiss Card, which gives you free passage to any airport or border station to any one destination in Switzerland, plus 50% discount on rail travel other times.

Here's a good link to compare ticket prices:

You can find train times, details and specific fares in English on the Swiss railway website here:

It is always best to investigate tyour potential point-to-point fare total before buying any rail pass. They ar enot automatically the best option.

Ive found this website to be excellent in the past when having to weigh up whether railpass/tickets or rental car - www.swisstravelsystem.ch

I used the Swiss Card to get to/from a border that was quite a ways. I found the 50% discount very handy. This will save you money only if you are staying quite a distance from the border. The SBB site mentioned above is a good place to get some pricing - that is what I did before buying the card. Overall I used the 50% reduction enough to make it worth it.

Travel Tips for Zürich

Anyone who ever travels to...

by sa-mi

Anyone who ever travels to Zurich, specially in summer time; this is a real great city and you will have thounsand of things to watch. But best in Zurich is just if you go along and let yourself lead by the crowed of the people. They will guide you to the good places (obviously don't follow the typical tourists). Specially in the old midtown area called Niederdorf, you have many of those little narrow streets where you find little shops, cafe's, bars or just people hanging around.
You might find that the people are a little bit unfriendly, but consider that Zurich is one of Switzerlands business metropoles and there are lot's of stressed biz people around which is normal in such cities. But give the swiss a little chance, they normally first have to watch you out for a while and once you make friends, they are normally real good friends.

by Volare

In Paradeplatz you can find all the Swiss banks to put your fortune in. Minimum to open an account 25 thousand USD or similar EUR. Rumours say that a large part of the Swiss gold reserves were stored under this square in the past in the highest degree of secrecy.

French? German? Italian?

by Dabs

For such a small country, one that is only twice the size of New Jersey, it's surprising that Switzerland has three official languages. German is the dominant language with around 64% of the population speaking it, French is at 20.4%, and Italian only 6.5%. I found myself over the course of the 9 days we were there thanking and greeting people in the wrong language several times as we flitted in and out of the German and French speaking sections of Switzerland. We never did make it to any of the Italian speaking section.

Which language is spoken seems to follow which country has the closest border, Zurich is closest to Germany and is part of the German speaking section, the residents speak a dialect called Schwyzerdutsch. Don't ask me how it differs from standard German, I only know enough German to order food!

INTERESTING SQUARES

by mel_bee

If you head down the back streets, you will be surprised by little courtyards and squares. Some are filled with colourful flowers, some have fountains, some have beautiful buildings. I liked this horse fountain which I found in a square, I haven't come across one in my travels for a long time and it looked so picturesque with the painted house behind it.
