Rail Holidays in Switzerland
Switzerland is bordered by Germany, France and Italy with each region of the country reflecting the language, culture and cuisine of each of its neighbours. Majestic mountains, charming towns, alpine lakes and scenic trains are the backdrop for any Switzerland holiday. Set off on adventure to visit the country’s acclaimed destinations like its capital city, Bern, with its medieval Clock Tower and Muenster Cathedral; Lucerne and its historic Chapel Bridge; the car-free town of Zermatt, located at the base of the Matterhorn, and the chic resort town of St. Moritz; Montreaux on the shores of Lake Geneva; and Geneva, home to international peacekeeping organizations and its renowned Flower Clock.
Each Switzerland tour includes journeys aboard the country’s acclaimed scenic trains. There is no better way to explore the country than on a scenic rail journey aboard the Glacier Express, Bernina Express, GoldenPass Panoramic Express, or an excursion to the Gornergrat aboard Europe’s highest rack railway.
