WHERE TO STAY

We stayed at the most incredible resort known as Bürgenstock Hotel & Spa. If you’re looking for a chillax weekend and the most spectacular views of Lake Lucerne, I will totally recommend you this place.

 

FOOD

#cheesecoma here we come. If you’re a cheese lover, Switzerland is the right place for you. I would definitely treat myself with a traditional dish like a cheese fondue or raclette. At last don’t forget to order a swiss chocolate fondue. 

Visiting a Fondue-Igloo is a must when visiting Switzerland. This was an incredible experience, which started on a cable car that takes you to the top of the snow-covered Entstigenalp. The inside of the igloo looks colder than it really is. After having a hot cheese fondue and some tea or wine you will get warm anyways.

Restaurants recommendations:

-      Fondue House in Lucerne

-      Fondue-Iglu on Enstigenalp in Adelboden

 

TIPS & TRICKS

-       Definitely rent a car. It’s easier to get to any place but don’t drive too fast, their speeding tickets are not very money friendly.

-       If you’re visiting the Fondue-Igloo try to make a reservation not later than 8PM because the last cable car ride it’s at 7:30PM (link: http://www.fondue-iglu.ch)

-       Switzerland is a little bit more expensive than other European countries. Don’t forget that before traveling there.

-      To visit Switzerland you only need a valid passport. But if you’re Dominican or from any of these other countries check this link to see if you require a Visa: https://www.sem.admin.ch/dam/data/sem/rechtsgrundlagen/weisungen/visa/bfm/bfm-anh01-liste1-e.pdf

 

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that Switzerland has four official languages? 

-       German

-       French

-       Italian

-       Romansh*

*Romansh is a romance language, descendant of the spoken Latin Language

 

COSTS

As I said before, Switzerland is a little bit more expensive than other European countries.
