Geneva2009's City Tips

  • If you rent an appartement, you will find easy taxis at the arrival of the train. Small outside, but you will fit even if you are a family of 4 with luggage.
  • The train takes just a few minutes and your trolley goes directly into the train - easy easy with your luggage - really cool.
  • First of all, you can take the car easily up to TAESCH. At Taesch you will find a wonderful, modern large parking (covered) - walking to the train - no stairs - no problem

    A place for all skiers - from blue slope to black. Something for everybody. Long initial cabin - but modern and comfortable. Takes you some 20 minutes to go to the very top. But then at least double the time to go down
