It looks to be perhaps 2 hours, is that accurate?
Is it a simple drive along a major autoroute, or are there complications, bottlenecks, etc.?
My wife and I are pondering a return to Alsace in 2011. Earlier this summer, we flew to Frankfurt, rented a car there at the airport, and drove down the autobahn, crossing near Strasbourg. The drive was fine, if just a tad longer than we would have liked.
We did not like the Frankfurt airport at all, and we are seeking an alternative that still offers a direct flight from the U.S. My wife is visually impaired. Unbelievably, the international flight home from Frankfurt to Dulles used a gate that had access to the plane via a long series of stairs. Is the Zurich airport any more thoughtfully equipped to handle disabled passengers than Frankfurt's airport?
Thanks in advance for your assistance with my questions.
