  • Bibs (available free of charge at Swiss Holiday Park)
  • Bottles, drinking cups, dishes (if not available at the hotel)

Tip: If you are holidaying in Switzerland, remember that the weather can vary greatly and pack enough clothes for all weathers. Ask at your hotel if you can wash on site or if there is a laundry service. Then you won't need to take as much with you.

Babies and small children should be protected from the sun. Remember that the sun is also very intense in the mountains.

  • Sun protection for the car windows (if you are travelling by car).
  • Possibly a parasol if you are planning a beach holiday.
  • Sun hat
  • Sunglasses

  • Spare nappies and wet wipes

For longer trips, we recommend that you take breaks at least every two hours so that the kids can get some exercise. This will make the trip less stressful.

  • buggy, stroller
  • Child car seat. If you are traveling by plane on vacation and have ordered a rental car, then you should pre-order the child seat from the car rental company.
  • Backpack or small bag for trips.

Only take medication with you that you already know. If necessary, consult your doctor. If your children suffer from allergies or illnesses, take enough medication with you that the doctor has prescribed. Find out at the holiday resort where the nearest doctor/hospital is in case your child is injured or falls ill during the holiday. The receptionists at the hotels will be happy to help you.

  • Check the photo equipment to make sure everything is working so your kids' snapshots don't fall through the cracks
  • Give apartment or room keys to family/friends or neighbours for emptying letterboxes (protection against burglars) and watering flowers.
  • Find out if there is a supermarket nearby for items you have forgotten at home or need to buy. There is a shop in the Swiss Holiday Park and supermarkets in nearby Brunnen and Schwyz and the Mythen Center, a large shopping centre.
