Zermatt by car

Hi,

Obviously I know that you can't drive to Zermatt! We are hoping to visit Zermatt for a day as part of our itinerary in a couple of weeks. Is there a good train station close to Zermatt with parking, where we can leave the cars for a few hours and catch the train to Zermatt? Any details on car parking charges very helpful!

Thank you,

Hi! I am spending a week in Basel in the beginning of June.

Any tips on what to see or do in Basel?
Would also appreciate tips on things to see around Basel as well. I´ve learned that Basel is in the centre where Germany, France and Switzerland meets, which must mean that there is a vibrant and diverse cultural life in the area.

Thanks!

Hello everyone.
Assuming an averagely relaxed pace, what is the average driving time of the St Bernards Pass (not the tunnel) from Martigny to Aosta? We will be travelling this road in early June.

Hello there,

My family and I will be traveling for two weeks around the Italian / Swiss lakes in July. We have five days by Lake Lugano, coming from Locarno via Bellinzona on the train and then going on to Lake Como via bus from the North side of the lake. (in other words we will be using public transport) We don't want to stay in Lugano itself, especially as part of our trip coincides with the Jazz Festival, so I'm thinking of staying either in Morcote or Gandria. We want a relaxing holiday of…

We're driving to Switzerland in the summer - a week in Lauterbrunnen and then a week in Brienz. Although we will have our own car with us, we plan to use trains and mountain transport as much as we can while we are there, partly because our kids (age 3 and 6) will love the cable cars, funiculars, chairlifts etc. Most of our daytrips will be quite local to Lauterbrunnen and Brienz. The number of travel passes available is mind-boggling, and we can't work out what will be best value for us. I know…

Hello, I am planning on doing the Tour du Mont Blanc trek on June 21st. If you're experienced in trekking, in shape, and up for an amazing and very scenic trek this is your chance!!! This is supposed to be one of the best treks in the world. I'm planning on hiking for 10 days and camping in tents most of the time. It sounds like a lot but it's actually a pretty leisurely pace for this trail. I'm doing this trek as cost efficiently as possible and the cost of food, campsite fees, etc should cost…

I have a third degree felony from an old car accident in the USA. Finished with probation and never had any other legal problems. I'm traveling to Switzerland for my honeymoon. Someone suggested making sure entry wouldn't be a problem. Has anyone traveled to Switzerland with a felony before and did they have problems? Please no rude comments. I paid my dues, live like a saint now, and want to move forward with my life. Departing out of New York and traveling by plane.
