Travelling to Central Switzerland?
        DOs and DON'Ts

On September 2005 I went to Heildelberg (Germany ), central Switzerland and Stresa (Italy ) (see map) with my wife. We don't like arranged travels and we prefer to travel on our own, because we think is the only way you can get in touch with the real country and its people. This way of travelling is harder and more expensive than others, but also more pleasant, relaxing and, that's the best, gives you a different point of view on the culture and way of life.

After my experience here you have my advice if you plan to travel on your own to these areas. You have to understand that this is MY PERSONAL POINT OF VIEW and that it is not my intention to criticize the people or culture of any of the mentioned places. You also must take into account that these observations are from year 2005. Things might have changed (either in the right or in the wrong way) since then. You must also bear in mind that this is not a travel guide, but just the description of my own journey and my own impressions. If you don't agree with some of the opinions below just write your own WEB page with you own opinions, but don't bother me.

If one's planning to visit Interlaken, he/she shouldn't miss Ballenberg and its Freilichtsmuseum (Swiss Open-Air Museum,

Rhaetische Bahn ( offers amazing and unforgetable views of Swiss Alps.

In Luzern one shouldn't miss Verkehrshaus der Schweiz (Swiss Museum of Transport,

There's also Swissminiatur in Melide to be seen (

Not to mention a number of beautiful old towns, i.e. Murten, Stein am Rhein, Schaffhausen, etc, etc…
