VISP ,SWITZERLAND

3oo days of sunshine.

I stayed in Visp in the month of March. Arriving with no accomadation booked, i went the Tourist Office, just outside the rail station front. The two main hotels had no single rooms available.They recommended Hotel St, Jodern. This hotel is a short walk,just passed the town hall. It is run by Nuns, and is spotlessly clean and comfortable. WIFi in room but no Tv. The TV was in a small lounge, .Breakfast was plentiful.---------Visp is the capital of the district of Visp in the canton of Valais Swizerland. A pleasant town in the Rhone Valley. Population is around 7,000. Altitude 658m [ 2,159 ft ] The distance from Bern is 80km. - Visp is 32km from Zermatt. Train to Zermatt,takes 1 hour 10 minutes.is by the Metre Gauge line.------------I was travelling on a Swiss Travel Pass, this is purchased by Swiss Francs at the rate for the days needed. Valid for 3, 5, 8, or 15 days, on Trains, Buses,and Boats. It entitles free admission to Museums. I found this pass to be good value. Also i did not have go to the ticket office each trip.
