Love this website! It has all the info you need to plan an amazing Swiss vacation. I love the input from fellow travelers. I downloaded a 50-page document about Wengen, and used the suggestions to plan all our daily activities. I love the discounts on train tickets and other activities they share as well. Definitely sign up!

This site made a huge difference for our trip to Switzerland. A wealth of great information and links that made our travel planning a lot easier. The end result, we had a great trip and stayed in a couple cities that weren’t initially on our radar. (especially loved Wengen). The Swiss Rail Pass made traveling everywhere a breeze. Definitely will use this site again.

Found this WEB site before a huge trip to Switzerland and boy did they help so much in the planning process. No question was to mundane or simple for them. Lot’s of great recommendations for places to stay, areas to visit and things to do. 6 stars!

I would recommend Myswissalps.com to anyone traveling in Switzerland. This is a group of informed, thoughtful people who have no purpose other than making your experience as good as it can be. I have a little knowledge of the area, especially Interlaken and Unterseen, and based on that I can say that they know their stuff. I rely on them to provide what I need and recommend them to friends and family who get the notion that I know more than I know. Thank you for being there!

The BEST site for any information about Switzerland! Anna, Ildiko, Arno and their friends administer the site. They are extremely helpful, efficient, patient and responsive. They reply right away to the questions. Their answers are always correct and they provide the links if you need more details. The site is very user friendly, the forums are to the point and you can get advise from the best places to visit, to very specific train travel questions, to tens of Covid related questions. Anything you need to know to travel to Switzerland! Thanks to MySwissAlps group, I got all my answers for my trip next week. I highly recommend them.

Page author: ArnoI have visited Switzerland countless times since 1997. I've explored most of the country, but find myself staying in the Bernese Oberland and Graubünden most frequently. The alps and the rail network remain very impressive, even after all these years.
