I'm from Australia, living in the UK, and some friends of mine are heading over our way for Christmas. My husband and I are working until the 23rd of December, and we have a booking at a ski chalet starting on the 26th. We would quite like to have Christmas Day in Switzerland somewhere. We can get a transfer to our chalet from Geneva.
I'm just wanting some advice on the Christmas period and some suggestions of what to do. I understand very little will be open (as expected).
*Fly to Zurich early morning of the 24th, catch a train to Bern. Spend the day and that evening in Bern checking out the pretty buildings and the Christmas markets.
*25th (Christmas Day) - Get up super early and catch trains to Jungfraujoch. I've read that this is operating on Christmas Day - can anyone confirm that? Also, once you're up the top, is there a restaurant we can have Christmas lunch in? It's fine if it's just a sandwich! Go back to Bern in the afternoon.
*26th - Catch train from Bern to Geneva to get transfer to chalet.
Any suggestions regarding what to do/what's open around this time of year would be fantastic!!
Thanks in advance :)
