A true and rare winter wonderland experience in Switzerland. This was a big one on my bucket list and I’m so happy I got to do it in my second year here. A few tips before you go.
Weekend getaway dream: to wake up in the mountains, put on your fluffy robe and slippers, and have your morning cup of tea from the balcony, with a view of a snow-covered village and day full of fun activities ahead. Here is how we spent the weekend at CERVO Zermatt.
Oeschinensee (Lake Oeschinen in English). The name of this lake is a little hard to remember and pronounce but it’s so beautiful and worth it that I’ve been here twice already in one year.
Last weekend I partnered together with Mazda to do my first ever road trip through Switzerland – an epic 5-hour drive from Zurich to Adelboden, with shimmering blue lakes, centuries-old towns, and Swiss Alps as our backdrop.
Blausee (“Blue Lake”) is probably one of the most famous travel destinations in Switzerland.
Last Saturday we spontaneously decided to go to Walensee for the day.
This small and charming medieval town on the shores of Limmat river, known for its mineral waters as a wellness destination, is only 20 minutes away from Zurich by train and is perfect for a short weekend trip.
Waking up to a view of the Matterhorn from your window is a dream. Even now that I’ve done it, looking at these photos still feels like another reality. For our one night stay in Zermatt, we booked a room at Hotel Bristol. It was my first time in this part of Switzerland and I did a lot of research to find the kind of place that would give us lasting memories. I wanted it to be a cozy hotel with character, an authentic alpine vibe, a spa and, of course, a view, and this small family-run hotel had it all.
Here are my impressions and tips from our December winter-wonderland travel on the Glacier Express, a trip that I wanted to do from the moment I heard it exists.
If you follow people who live in Switzerland through Instagram, you will without a doubt come across the classic picture of the Aescher Berggasthaus. Carved into the mountain, this little wooden house, with a pointy roof and a panoramic patio, looks too good to be true. But a pleasant 20-minute descent from the Ebenalp peak down the path that goes through fields and a cave, on the last curve, you walk right into this postcard view.
