Re: Family Friendly places to visit in Switzerland

I just bought the book 1001 Ausflugsziele-Familienspass im Freizeitland Schweiz* by Lukas Fischer and it's great. It is currently on sale at Weltbild bookstores for CHF 29.90 (orig CHF 39.90).

*Roughly translated: 1001 Destinations / Family Fun / Leisure Activities in Switzerland


The information is organized according to region. Stars tell you the cost of the outing from zero stars=Free to 5 stars=over 100 CHF. Entries have a picture of the destination, a brief description, and practical information such as opening times, season, parking, accessibility by public transportation, website, etc.

Destinations are classified into 29 categories, for example: adventure, action, castles, amusement parks, caves, cultural monuments, theme trails, bicycle tours, winter walks, etc.

The book is in German only. However, the information is presented in a very visual and attractive manner and you can get most of what you need at a glance.

I think the book is excellent and well worth the price ... even for those of us that speak very little German.
