Overview

Skiing and après ski, contemporary art, watches, chocolate and fine cheeses all melt together with sublime efficiency in Switzerland.

The national railway company of Switzerland is known as the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB/CFF/FFS). Switzerland has a very efficient railway network. Train tickets for trains operating in Switzerland can be booked in advance. International trains connect Switzerland with neighbouring countries such as France and Italy. Book tickets to visit main cities of Switzerland by train. Swiss cities including Geneva, Bern and Lausanne are all served by trains.

Cityscape

Switzerland is very proud of its excellent public transport system so take advantage and fit in as much of the country as you can during your stay. Visit the capital Bern to see the legendary clock tower, or visit Lausanne, just an hour away by Swiss Travel System train, for the cathedral and fascinating bridges. For something a bit different the Old Town in Zurich has some excellent nightlife.

Landscape

You’ll find everything here; lakes, orchards, palm trees (in Ascona), glaciers (in Valais), mountains, and all less than a three-hour train journey apart.

Take Home

A Swiss army knife has to be top of the list, and of course the jewellery and watches are some of the best in the world. If none of these take your fancy then a dose of good old Swiss cheese and chocolate are sure to suffice, Toblerone anyone?

Eat & Drink

You can’t go to Switzerland and not have a fondue, all that cheese bubbling away, yum, yum. Potato dishes, tarts and quiches are also very popular, and take a trip around one of the many chocolate factories; they usually let you have loads of samples!

New Perspective

Take a Segway city tour in Basel, Switzerland’s third largest city and just an hour’s train ride from Zurich. A Segway, if you don’t know, is a two-wheeled, self-balancing electric vehicle that allows you to get around faster. A great way to view the city!

    "The train ride was very good except for the luggage aspect. If you have multiple bags (which people from the US on a long trip may have) then it's difficult to find space to store your luggage and no one is assigned to help out. There were many people who didn't have seats. Thankfully, my wife and I booked assigned seats. "

    Straightforward trip |
    "The tickets came on time although you may wish to consider online tickets :) The train was fairly easy to find. It was a busy service but fairly comfortable. The wifi was terrible and it stopped at one station for so long, I think I could have walked the entire length of the train a few times! "

    "The only way to travel in Europe, no security checks, no arriving two hours before departing, comfortable seats, fantastic service. Fares were very reasonable for first class travel. We wish it was that easy to travel in Canada. "

    "The biggest difficulty was with luggage. My wife said she traveled first class on another carrier and though this was comfortable, it didn't seem so first class. Seemed more like comfortable business class. "

    Amazing service |
    "I travelled from Zurich to salzburg. It was amazing conveniance as well as comfort. Scenery was great as well. However I used first class train that should have been more spacious and reclining seats should have been with leg cusioning as well "
