We just came home from Switzerland yesterday and had a great time there.
First, I want to thank you so much for the assistance from this site. It helps us so much.
What we find is the SBB timetable App on our phone is a Must-have to find all the train, bus, boat schedules. It has save us so much time on figuring out where to go and how to get between places. Transportation schedules is very on time. If it's late 2 or 3 minutes, we could tell from the App or signs right away. Swiss Travel Pass is a great way to travel. It is very convenient to get on the train and boat we want and don't need to waste time to get the tickets. It is worth it for us since we visit many places.
We have Verizon service with us, but we also rent a mobile wifi there. Great service even up to the mountains. Internet service is must have to find restaurants and we use google map for walking.
Public restrooms are very clean, 95% is free. Some train stations require fee (1 CHF or 2 CHF). All trains have restrooms.
We visited Mt. Rigi, Mt. Pilatus, Mt. Titlis, and Lake Lucerne. Harder Kulm, Grindelwald First, Jungfraujoch, Lake Brienz, Lake Thun in Interlaken. And take Glacier Express train, and spend out last day in Geneva to fly home from there. For us, Glacier Express is not our top pick, I guess it would be greater to ride this train in the winter.
Our top mountain picks are Mt. Titlis, Grindelwald First, and Jungfraujoch is very great.
Swiss Travel Pass covers 50% for funicular, cable cars and cog wheel trains to Mt. Pilatus (36 CHF extra), Mt. Titlis (33 CHF extra), Harder Kulm (17 CHF extra), Grindelwald First (32 CHF extra). STP gives 25% discount to visit Jungfraujoch (139 CHF extra). STP covers Mt. Rigi 100%.
Huge restaurant options, different cuisines. People are nice and courteous. And we feel less concerned about pick pocket.
We used BinaxNOW test kit for our return. We brought them from home. Connected to the website and took about 15 min to take the test, and got the result back in about 5 min.
Our trip went smoothly we know we got a lot of help from this site. We can't say thank you enough. And hope to return to Switzerland soon.
