Hi,

I am planning to take the train to Jungfraujoch from Interlaken OST in May 2017. As advice in many posts, considering the weather, the tickets should be bought when the time is near. Hence I've allocated 2 days free for this trip. Due to the ticket price, I would want to secure the early morning trip (6.30 am or 7 am depart from Interlaken OST). We'll be staying in Lucerne for both of the days (I will have 3 nights in Lucerne).

  1. How early should I depart from Lucerne (Huob) in order…

Hi everyone!

I am hoping to do some hiking for a few days in early April in Switzerland. I was wondering if there are any hostels or local tourist offices which organize hikes? I'm not looking for a guide, instead I would like a way to find others to hike with (since I would prefer to not hike alone). Are free or cheap organized hikes available anywhere?

Thanks!

We will be in Montreux for 3 days in May and want to take a short pleasure cruise on Lake Geneva/Leman. We have 2 choices for destinations - we can choose a cruise to Vevey, Switzerland (north shore of lake) or to Saint-Gingolph, France (south shore of lake). Is there a clear difference between these destinations in terms of views and charm? We would probably take train back to Montreux rather than do a round trip on the ship.

Thanks!

Hi everyone!

I am hoping to do some hiking for a few days in early April in Switzerland. I have done some research, and while higher altitude hiking is not possible this time of year, hiking at lower levels seems quite possible. As I'm a college student, I am hoping to stay somewhere (such as a hostel) that is reasonably affordable.

I have read online that Montreux (Lake Geneva), Lucerne, Valais, Ticino, Appenzell, or even Zermatt would have decent hiking in early April. Can anyone give…

My husband and I are going to finish hiking the tour du Mont Blanc July 27 and will then have 8-9 days to travel through Switzerland or surrounding countries. We have been to Northern Italy and don't need to see anything there, but are looking for recommendations of can't miss things to do/see. We haven't started our research, yet, so I thought I would get suggestions before we start planning our trip. Also, recommendation on how to travel (train, car, etc.) are appreciated.
