I have been using Frommers for all my leisure travel-related needs for the last 16 years, and it is becoming increasingly apparent to me that they are resting on their laurels.

Don't let the year fool you. I am beginning to think that Frommers merely takes the last year's edition and slap the newest year on it to justify purchasing the 'latest' edition.

Instead you get clearly outdated, overhyped information. Frommers likes to put it out there that they are 'in the know' for the best experiences, but let me tell you firsthand they overpromise in the form of their descriptions.

A few examples. The 'Bear Pits' of Bern. Strongly implying that they have been at the same location for "[hundreds] of years" in the same location. "Be sure to bring a bag of carrots to feed them". Uh, WRONG. The so-called pits looks like a zoo exhibit on a hillside, complete with concrete caves, barriers, etc. In fact, when you go into Bern, you learn quickly that it has moved several times, along with the times. Oh, and forget those carrots. Total fabrication. You are not allowed to feed them.

The clock tower in Bern is a bust. Save yourself travel fare and google a picture of it. The great show that is promised is a bust as well.

I could go on and on about other places, such as their descriptions of Zurich, Lucerne and such. Don't get me wrong, they are fabulous cities in their own right, each with their own individual character.

It's just that I consider it a complete betrayal of trust when you put out an outdated edition, resting on your laurels and never following up to see if you are current.

Beware. This book is a piece of junk.
Used this book to help plan a trip to Australia --- only kidding, just seeing if you are paying attention! I had never been to Switzerland and needed to come up with a vacation plan. Frommer's was a good start as they give you a great overview of all areas. Sometimes I wondered if the businesses thay recommend had paid them as I found other establisments to be better than the ones recommended. Overall - it's a good place to start.
Wonderful! Lots of great information.
What I expected.
Frommer is always a good guide. I haven't actually finished it yet as I'm not traveling until August. Still, it was useful in deciding where we want to spend more time on our itinerary.
This was a gift to friends who are traveling to Switzerland for the first time.....perfect travel companion! And a great gift!
This is the only book I bought for my trip to Switzerland, and I was able to get by very well with it. I visted Zurich, Lucerne, Lugano, Bern, Interlaken, Zermatt, Montreaux, Lausanne, and Geneva, and found the book to have all the information I needed for each city.

The format is easy to use, with listings of hotels, restaurants, tourist attractions, bars, nightclubs, etc., for each city, and the book includes info on virtually every city and town in Switzerland that a tourist could want to see. For major cities, the book even has maps showing where hotels, restaurants and tourist attractions are located, as well as more detailed maps of proposed "walking tours."

There are no photos of Switzerland in this book, except on the front and back cover. Although the lack of photos doesn't bother me, if you want photos of Switzerland in your guide book, I would suggest the DK Eyewitness guide.
I purchased a copy of this book to help with my summer research internship in Switzerland in 2001, and found it to be less useful than the Rough Guides.
The Fromer book is written as a fairly terse reference book, listing a few restaurants, hotels of various price ranges, and not much else for the different cities. Sure, there are listings of attractions for the different cities, but the way they are presented is not very helpful to plan trips. On the other hand, the Rough Guides have suggestions on things to do for the different places.
So all in all, it depends on your style of planning but I feel that this book is more suited to business travelers.
