How to get to SHML

By plane

There are three major international airports in Switzerland – Geneva, Zurich and Basel. The nearest to our College is Geneva followed by Zurich. However we recommend Zürich, as the airport is an international hub and connections to Lenk are faster and easier.

Flight reservations need to be made well in advance of your starting date, especially during the high seasons of Swiss tourism i.e. December, January, February –June, July, August.

By train

Swiss rails connect Geneva and Zurich Airports. Upon landing, please proceed to the SBB counter for guidance and purchase the train ticket. From Zurich, you can travel comfortably via Bern-Spiez to Zweisimmen; from Geneva you travel to Lausanne, Montreux, Gstaad and finally Zweisimmen. Subject to informatin, you will be met in Zweisimmen by our school representative. Although train schedules are reliable, it is advised to check the SBB website.
