Re: Best Places to show in switzerland

I can recommend the Stanserhorn in Stans. There's a double-decker cable car with an open upper-deck which is really breathtaking. First you buy your Boarding Pass and on your travel time you take first an old-time funicular befor you change to the Cable Car. On the top (1'900m) there is a great Restaurant and a possibility for a 30 minutes hike. You also can take the hike back down, which takes 4 Hours.

Re: Best Places to show in switzerland

Why not visit the Aletsch Glacier? I went there in September and it was gorgeous!! It is a nice hike and you can climb your way down as well and make a day trip out of it. Don't forget to have some Rosti and Cheese at the top restaurant. I should mention, I took the route via Fiesch.
There are multiple sites of entry and on a good sunny day, the place looks breath taking.
You can also go on a few hours trek with the groups that organize treks hiking tours and actually experience the glacier from a closer perspective. A friend of mine did that and couldn't stop talking about it.

I agree that visiting the Aletsch Glaicier should be high on the list of places to visit. I wonder how many people take the Glacier Express, expecting to see it on the way. In reality they have no chance.

Indeed Aletsch Glacier is great! had a friend coming over for a week and showed her a few places, the Aletsch hike was her favorite (mine as well!).

If you head up to one of the hut's in Zermatt instead of staying down in the village it's not expensive anymore...

Wait for the warmer season and then go to:
http://www.pizol.com/sommer/aktivita...wanderung.html
It's a 5 hour hike and very beautiful.
The site is not yet in english but I can help translate, if you're interested.

Re: Best Places to show in switzerland

Hi! I wold suggest also small village Gandria near Lugano. Fantastic old over 100 years old village on the Lugano lake. You can visit the Swiss Customs museum over there.

Re: Best Places to show in switzerland

I took some visitors to Schillthorn when they came (we stayed in Interlaken) and it was incredible. We basically went to Interlaken without a proper plan (waiting to see weather) - when we woke up and it was a clear blue sky we decided on the Schillthorn you take 4 different cable cars to get up there, and the views are breath taking, I really recommend it. The trip is expensive but the restaurant at the top isn't, and has a James Bond museum.


Also, the Creux du Van is really nice and I've been there often because I live in Neuchatel. I also love Lucerne and Lausanne...


If you go to Creux du Van and like watches, then you can also go to the Musee d'horologie in la chaux du fonds - really nice watch / clock museum!


I'm making my first trip to Zermatt in a couple of weeks


All the best
