Trip Moment Recommendations
The city Paradiso, Switzerland ❤️🇨🇭
It is the ninth largest Swiss city. The city lies on Lake Lugano, at its largest width, and, together with the adjacent town of Paradiso, occupies the entire bay of Lugano. The territory of the municipality encompasses a much larger region on both sides of the lake, with numerous isolated villages.
We had a short trip to Lugano. but the moment we spent, will be in our hearts forever. such a peaceful city, mountains, and lake made it perfect for relaxing. Also, there is an elevator going up to the mountain to get the city's best view, but we missed it. We would love to visit the city again and hope to spend more days in there. Highly recommended place if you are visiting Milan, take a short drive and enjoy the sightseeing and the peaceful lake..#trip #switzerland
Mount Titlis Top of Europe
Mount Titlis is stunning. Beautiful landscapes and what fresh air. Titlis is the Jewel in Central Switzerland crown and the only publicly accessible glacier in the area. You will feel on top of the world as you take in the spectacular panoramic views of snow-covered mountains and unspoilt Alpine Landscapes. The Titlis ski area is home to more than 80km of pistes, with slopes to suit every ability
🇨🇭Day 1: SIN - ZRH
I’ve always dreamt of going to Switzerland and I finally did it!
Mustered up enough courage and travel funds to book a long-haul 13 hours direct flight to Zurich with Singapore Airlines, and the only regret I takeaway from this is… THIS TRIP WAS WAY TOO SHORT, and also I learnt that I would very much prefer a layover for long-haul flights. 📝
I chose to stay in Hotel St. Gotthard throughout my time in Switzerland and took day trips out to other places because there’s lots of shopping near the hotel, fast food, restaurants, supermarket… everything is just a few steps away!
Most importantly, the hotel is located just a mere 5mins walk away to Zurich HB (train station) which is extremely convenient since my itinerary consist of taking lots of day trips out!
I was early for check-in so I dropped my luggage off at reception and started my day 1 in Switzerland!
📍Hotel: Hotel St. Gotthard
Bahnhofstrasse 87, 8001 Zürich, Switzerland
S$1800 for 7 nights
There were lots of luxury fashion and jewellery brands around to do some window shopping, nice quaint little cafes but they were closed for mid afternoon break.
Day walking around and finally saw an open cafe, which was crowded but didn’t have much of a choice! Had some pastries and coffee to recharge after the long flight, which cost about 20CHF. 💸
📍Cafe: Boréal Coffee Shop Talacker (ZU)
Talacker 41, 8001 Zürich, Switzerland
Taking day 1 light and easy to familiarise myself around the hotel!

A tribute to Freddie Mercury in Montreux 🇨🇭
Last winter, we travelled from Zurich to Geneva and had a stopover in Montreux.
Since Freddie Mercury State is located on the shore of Lake Geneva in Montreux, and we do enjoy songs by Queen, we decided to visit the statute and pay our respects.
Not knowing much about Queen apart from their songs, I was confused why was there a statute of Freddie Mercury in Montreux. After some research, I found out that Freddie had lived in Montreux and really enjoyed the town because of its tranquility which gives him a peace of mind; Queen also recorded six albums in Montreux.
I have to say I very much agree with Freddie, Montreux is really a peaceful small town which offers stunning views of the Swiss Alps.
Definitely do not miss out on Montreux when you are planning your visits in Switzerland/ France, and while you are at it, do not miss out on the Freddie Mercury Statute.

Read if you are visiting Grindelwald 🇨🇭🧀❄️🏞️🏔️
Wonderful family owned hotel/chalet in Grindelwald that is 15 mins walk away from the Grindelwald train terminal.
As we had travelled from big cities like Vienna, Munich and Zurich, Hotel Cabana is the perfect place of relaxation, away from the hustle and bustle.
Staff at the reception are nice, while checking in for us, she gave us advice as to how we can get tickets to jungfrau etc.
Hotel Cabana is a traditional-looking chalet, and it is very well-maintained and clean. We booked the room with garden access and it did not disappoint!!
On our first day, it did not snow so we get to enjoy the greenery. However, on our first night, it started snowing so we had the opportunity to also witness the snow ❄️😍
I definitely recommend staying at Hotel Cabana when you are in Grindelwald. Book the room with garden access and you will not regret it!! While you are at it, also bring your complimentary breakfast to the room to enjoy!!

i went to switzerland when winter was almost over and spring is just about to start, as an asian i guess its the best time to go since its not too cold but i still get to enjoy the snow. We expolered Zurich, Interkalen, Lucerne and Zermatt by train. Its a must to go to Zermatt and see the Matterhorn which is the highlight of my trip. The train ride though from zurich to zermatt is very scenic and some scenes makes me feel that im a bob ross painting. #switzerland #zermatt #matterhorn

Beautiful alpine village nestled in the mountains with an amazing view of the Jungfrau valley and Lauterbrunnen down below. Taking the train up to Wengen will guarantee you a lovely view of Lauterbrunnen.
The village has shops, attractions and amenities within walking distance. Though, if you do decide to get a resort/hotel further up, be sure to ask for shuttle cars, the upwards slopes are no joke.
Our hotel had a lovely view of the cable car rides up to Männlichen, the street below and at night- if you’re willing to stand in the 14 degrees cold (even in summer) you can get a good picture of the night sky!
Of course, we couldn’t stay in Wengen without visiting Männlichen and her famous Royal Walk- a short hike of 1.7km, with elevations up to 80-120m up/down, grants you a truly breathtaking panoramic view. ((the gravel paths can be a bit slippery so be careful on the way down))
The trail from Männlichen to Kleine Scheidegg was an overall downhill walk with a view of Grindelwald down below and the snow capped mountains. But before you embark on this trail be sure to either get something to eat or drink (and the WC of course) at Männlichen as it is quite a long walk (about 4.7km). Near the midpoint you can see Eiger! A truly memorable walk with amazing scenery of the town below and mountains all around us.
Truly a scenic paradise with plenty of activities to do, whether you prefer to simply enjoy the views or try out some of their more thrilling activities. It was my first time visiting Switzerland but certainly won’t be the last!#switzerland #summervacation #nature #alps
Enjoying the view with toboggan ride 🗻
🌸TOBOGGAN RIDE @ KANDERSTEG, SWITZERLAND 🇨🇭
🌸The main reason i choose to travel to Switzerland during summer hot day is because of this ride as its only operates during summer.
🌸There are no better ways to enjoy the view of the mountains, blooming flower, and greenery landscape other than by sliding a 750 meter toboggan.
🌸It’s fun and memorable experience
🌸 The ride cost CHF 6/ride

I came to the village of Villars to see and hike those beautiful Swiss Mountains. No pictures can do these mountains justice - their beauty can only be experienced first-hand. There are several hiking trails available and some outdoor activities as well - unfortunately, paragliding was not available on the day we went, but that would have been fun. Elevation is high, so I found myself out of breath if I hiked uphill too fast - don’t overexert yourself!
Geneva is on the southwest French-speaking part of Switzerland. You won’t hike the Swiss Alps here, but as the second largest city in the country, there are plenty of museums and attractions to visit. I strolled around the city for two days visiting the home of the United Nations, the Flower Clock, the Reformation Wall, and CERN. If I had more time, I would have visited more of the museums around Old Town and gardens.
Harder Kulm : TOP of Interlaken🇨🇭
Harder Kulm is a mountain at 1321m, located above the tourist town Interlaken.
Getting there: Take the funicular from Interlaken (East) to Harder Kulm where you’ll have panoramic views of the Bernese Oberland. The ride is about 10 minutes and costs more or less 25 CHF for a return ticket.
Restaurant: You can enjoy brunch, lunch or dinner in the panorama restaurant. The price is surprisingly cheaper than of the City. Eat fondue with a view😆❤️
Once you’re at Harder Kulm, you can look down onto Interlaken and the surrounding lakes.

A leisure afternoon cruise on Lake Thun 🚢
After visiting the Panorama bridge Sigriswil, we took the ferry from Gunten Dorf nearby back to Thun across the beautiful Lake Thun, the largest lake in the Bernese Oberland.
The two-hour boat trip on Lake Thun starts from Interlaken West, stopping at 10 jetties before ending at Thun. You can hop on the boat at any jetty as long as the timing is right. There is a restaurant on board which serves Swiss cuisine. If you don't feel like eating, you can just sit around while enjoying the stunning views of green meadows, forests and Swiss Alps beyond. You can also see five fairytale style castles located on different parts by the shores of Lake Thun.

Best viewpoint for plane spotting in Zurich 🇨🇭
Whether you are an aviation enthusiast or not, it is a wonderful experience watching the take-offs and landings of aircrafts up close. There are two observation decks in Zurich Airport. Observation Deck B, located in the public area of Zurich Airport, is open to public at a small entrance fee. Observation Deck E, located on top of Dock E in the passenger zone, is open for passengers with a boarding pass. Public visitors can also take a shuttle bus to observation deck E from deck A.
We had a chance to relax in the fresh air on Observation Deck E before boarding our flight in Zurich airport. The deck offers a spectacular view of the airport activities as it is situated at the centre of the three runways. Visitors also have an opportunity to spot A380 up close as the world’s largest aircraft docks very close to the observation deck several times a day.

Best viewpoint in Lucerne 🇨🇭 during winter
One of the most iconic landmarks that you should not miss in Lucerne is the Musegg Wall built in the 14th century. It is about 15 minutes walk from Lucerne train station. As the wall is located on a hill so be prepared to climb stairs and slopes. There are 9 watchtowers along the 870-m long city wall, 4 of which are open to public (free admission) during non-winter months.
We were not able to walk on the city wall as we visited during winter so we explored the area inside the city wall. A local that we met suggested that we walked along the outer wall to have a great view of the city. We were indeed greeted with panoramic views of Lucerne city with a backdrop of Lake Lucerne and Swiss Alps as we explored the area outside the wall. Make sure to climb the watch towers if you visit during summer as I'm sure the views from the watch towers will be even more spectacular!

Staying at Därligen, a picturesque small town in 🇨🇭
We stayed a few nights in Därligen, a peaceful and beautiful small town at the south shore of Lake Thun 6 km from Interlaken. The only way to reach our accommodation by public transport is taking bus 60 from either Interlaken or Spiez train station, which departs at a regular interval of 30 min. Waking up to the stunning views of Lake Thun made our stay worthwhile despite the slight inconvenience in transportation. Attractions that be reached in 1 hour from Därligen include Bern, the capital city of Switzerland, and Panorama bridge Sigriswil, which is well-known for being the film location of Korean drama Crash Landing on You.

The best hotel to stay in Basel!
I visited Hotel Märthof Basel during February 2023 together with my sister, and I can say for sure that we will definitely come back!
It’s a relatively new high-end hotel in Basel, a perfect choice for your accommodation. I was first of all impressed by the service, as the staff were always kind, smiling and willing to help.
Next is the interior design! The common areas were covered in black and gold colours and relaxed atmosphere.
We stayed at the Marktplatz Suite which was huge with a really comfortable bed and a super aesthetic bathtub. The whole suite was beautifully decorated and offered an amazing view to the Marktplatz square.
The breakfast included a great selection of everything we could ask for and the quality was excellent.
Finally the views to the city from the rooftop are not to be missed!
I totally recommend this hotel for your stay in Basel!

Évian-les-Bains - Unlimited Evian water for free
getting here by ferry from Genava reach to this heaven alike place which always can see from mineral water bottle, Evian.
You can freely to drink this mineral water as much as you want and even bring back if you have bottle.
Price for food and grocery here should be cheaper a lot than Geneva as I saw quite a number of people taking grocery item back to Geneva from ferry.
Here is peaceful and suitable to stay for a night to refuel your energy.

Jungfrau - Top of Europe 🇨🇭
Definitely worth going to the top of Europe for the spectacular view. It is roughly taking around 2.5 hours from Interlaken to the top of Jungfrau. Firstly you have to go to Grindelwald, then take the Eiger express to reach the top of Europe. The whole experience is very good as there’s a lot to see on the way up. Then you will be expected to stay on there for another 1.5 to 2 hours. My recommendation is to go earlier and check the weather before going to ensure you will get the best possible view.
The cost is 197 CHF for the train and the entrance.

Alps Scenic Train
#switzerland One of the greatest train rides in the world, the Goldenpass trainfrom Interlaken to Montreaux brings you along magnificent landscapes. Staring from rolling hills, the train climbs into the tall peaks of the Alps, visiting charming towns like Gstaad.

💕 Hello Lake Brienz
Lake Brienz is a picturesque lake located in the Bernese Oberland region of Switzerland. We had the Swiss Pass, which gave us free access to the ferry. The cruise was really great with stunning views of the surrounding landscape. We were able to drop off and hop onto the next ferry. During the cruise, we were trying to spot the scenery of what appeared in the popular Korean drama "Crash Landing on You." This gave us some entertainment and enjoyment during the trip.
Overall, Lake Brienz is a beautiful and peaceful destination that gives us the chance to relax and enjoy the natural beauty of Switzerland.
Dining at 360° Restaurant 2970m abv sea level
What better way to celebrate special occasions with your loved ones than dining at a 360-degree revolving restaurant on top of a mountain surrounded by spectacular alpine scenery straight out of postcards?
We spent a memorable Christmas day on the Schilthorn summit - Piz Gloria located at 2,970 metres above sea level. Piz Gloria got its name from a James Bond novel and is well known for being the film location for the 1969 Bond movie "On Her Majesty's Secret Service". It took us 2.5 hours to reach Schilthorn from Interlaken train station after multiple train, bus and cable car rides.
Do make advance reservation if you do not want to miss the James Bond brunch buffet at Schilthorn - Piz Gloria 360°-Restaurant which is quite reasonable priced at CHF 35 per adult.
Despite having no advance reservation, we didn't want to miss the opportunity to dine at the 360° revolving restaurant. Thankfully the restaurant allowed walk in customers after the buffet lunch ended at 2 pm. It was really an amazing and eye-opening experience to watch the mountain scenery glide by while enjoying our food. It took 45 minutes for the restaurant to rotate 360° around its own axis.

Twilight view from the top of Zurich
The top of Zurich can be easily reached by taking train S10 from Zurich HB to the final stop Uetliberg in half an hour. At 2,850 feet above sea level, Uetliberg offers an impressive panoramic view of the city.
After a short walk from the train station, you will reach the highest point of Uetliberg, where the Uto Kulm restaurant is located. It is a perfect dining place for you and your loved ones whole absorbing the breathtaking panorama. If you want an even better view, you can climb the Uetliberg Lookout Tower next to the restaurant for CHF 2. However the view from the bottom of the tower is already good enough! Uetliberg is also the starting point of a popular hiking trail. This 6-km trail from Uetliberg to Felsenegg takes you on a fascinating tour through a model of the solar system.
