                                                        Special Benefits for arriving tourists     
 

        One of the best ways to get around  Switzerland is by train and there are many beneficial options available. One of the most convenient is  Swissair's Fly/Rail Baggage plan. You check your luggage in at your departure city and it goes right to  your final destination - magically appearing in your hotel room. No standing around at the luggage carousel to claim it or having to
carry it on and off a train.
          Another plus: Check-in
your luggage at the train station the day before your flight. There you will receive  your chart of loading for the place of your choice on the aircraft. Thus, the day of the departure, you have more time and begin your travel in  peace, without having to wait at the check-in and without having to carry your luggage. 
           Visitors arriving at Geneva International Airport can now pick up a free
Unireso ticket for public transportation from a machine in the baggage collection area at the arrival level. The ticket, provided by the airport, allows free travel on the public transportation system in Geneva for a period of 80 minutes. Similarly, guests at the city�s hotels may request a "Geneva Transport Card" for free transportation.
   
           Separately, Rail Europe is offering  various discounts on Swiss Passes purchased prior to the client�s departure from home base. You can buy passes for any number of days and reserve seats in advance. Choose from 1st or 2nd class coaches .The 2nd class coaches are very clean  as well as budget wise so they are a very good  choice.
           
           
                    
THE THERAPEUTIC EFFECTS OF  SWITZERLAND�S CLIMATE:   
 
        The human organism reacts to climatic properties which may have an effect  on the circulation, metabolism, the vegetative system, central and nervous system and hormonal activity. Climatic conditions that help to promote healthy therapy and recovery are: 

Stimulating properties: Altitude � sunshine � intensity of solar radiation

Sedative properties:     Protection from strong winds � moderate and balanced cooling
                                       index � comparatively stable weather � a combination of stimulating
                                       and sedative properties

       In Switzerland climatic resorts and spas are classified according to their degrees of stimulation. Therefore we suggest you find the spa you are considering in the following list and check for the degree of stimulation, as well as for the general effects you can look for.

3:        Thoroughly stimulating         Leukerbad � Zermatt - Grindelwald  
and possible strong winds
