Better yet, flights are included in the prize.

In partnership withSwitzerland Tourism


Excuse the cliché, but when we describe Switzerland as a “winter
wonderland”, we mean it. From its frosted lakeside cities where
modern design hotels and puritanically sparse galleries sidle up
beside neo-classical marvels to its snow-carpeted Alpine villages,
laced together by slick-as-a-whip railways and speckled by
now Sports Hotels, Switzerland is a country
that never fails to charm the woollen socks off winter

Hold on tight. To celebrate the launch of Vol. 32: The Homegrown
Issue, we’ve put together a corker of a prize so you can experience
it all for yourself. The lucky winner will start with two nights at
the 25hours Hotel Langstrasse in Zurich, before
zipping up to Hotel Nira
in St Moritz/Silvaplana where they’ll soar through
timeless glacial landscapes aboard the iconic Bernina Express (first class,
naturally) before returning home and recounting it all to their
nearest and dearest. The prize will be redeemable for a year,
starting from the 1st January 2021. Oh, and just to add, we’re
throwing in return flights courtesy of SWISS too.

This bumper prize kicks off with two nights in Zurich, a city
that proves you really can have it all – rippling lakes, thrumming
bars, farm-to-table restaurants and a spiky, mountainous backdrop.
Hot hotels, too. At the Europaallee, just ten minute walk away from
the main station, sits 25hours Hotel Langstrasse. Stacked with the
works of local artists and crowned by a rooftop sauna, it’s not
only one of the city’s foremost
Design Hotels
but the best spot for warming up and winding

Days here will be spent hopping from one museum to the next –
we’re sorting you out with a complimentary Zurich Card so you won’t
have to spend a penny on museum entry or public transport for the
duration of your trip – before settling down for an evening meal at
one Zurich’s lip-smacking restaurants. No need to call for the
bill; we’ve put aside a couple of vouchers. The pleasure is

With a heavy heart and even heavier belly, it’s time to wave
goodbye to Zurich and hello to the glitzy echelons of St Moritz.
Again, we’ve taken care of transport by sorting you out with an
all-in-one train pass so you won’t be out of pocket when you alight
in glittering St. Moritz. Nestled among its famous, powder-blasted
pistes you’ll find Nira Alpina, a devilishly decadent Snow Sports Hotel with sweeping views out over
glassy lakes and frost-tipped crags.

It’s from here that you’ll set forth into the mountains aboard
the Bernina Express – an epic railway that scores 55 tunnels, 196
bridges and climbs up to heights of 2,253m above sea level, before
landing amid the waving palms of Tirano in Italy.

We’re sending you there and back in first class. Wedge yourself
into the train’s cushty carriage and enjoy the ride, glass of
champagne in hand, as you take in screensaver-worthy landscapes
before being deposited back in Nira Alpina’s luxurious embrace.
This is how to do Switzerland SUITCASE-style.

To enter, first follow @suitcase and
@rhaetischebahn on
Instagram, and then answer the following question correctly: how
many bridges does the Bernina Express pass through? Leave your
answer as a comment on this post.

Good luck. We’ll pick the winner after the competition closes on
23rd December.
