  • Zurich

    In truth, this wealthy and efficiently run city has a reputation for being a business hub rather than a sightseeing city. Often, Zurich is an overlooked travel destination, however, the city is slowing coming out of its shell. In fact, the culturally vibrant Swiss city is emerging as one of Europe's best destinations. As a result of this, the people of Zurich are shedding their conservative image and channeling their inner party animal. The beautiful Historic Centre (located in the Old Town) is the culture cup of Zurich. As well as this, it is home to a number of architecturally impressive buildings from medieval churches and houses.
  • Interlaken Express

    Board the Interlaken Express for an unforgettable travel experience in the heart of Switzerland. A perfect starting point for this Swiss rail package. In short, this two-hour train ride takes you along the shores of crystal clear lakes. Then, past romantic waterfalls and over the Brünig mountain pass. Through those large panoramic windows, experience the most spectacular views of the Swiss alps!
  • Interlaken

    Sandwiched between two lakes in the centre of Switzerland, Interlaken is surrounded by natural beauty! Thrillseekers and adrenaline junkies are sure to love the adventure capital! Tourist attractions are around it with boat tours on Lakes Thun and Brienz on either side of the town. Interlaken is one of the oldest, best known, and most popular holiday resorts. Day or night, find plenty of things to do in and around this town!
  • Jungfraujoch

    As you may know, Interlaken is the gateway to the Jungfraujoch experience. An alpine attraction and viewing point at an altitude of 3454m. Located between the well-known mountains Mönch and Jungfrau. In the heart of the UNESCO Natural World Heritage property. In addition to the beautiful views, there are plenty of restaurants and things to do. Our favourite is the Lindt Swiss Chocolate Heaven. Here you can learn about the history of this delicious chocolate and how it's made. Of course, you can buy chocolate here too!
  • Brig

    A strategically situated town that lies alongside the river Rhone, in a wide sunny section of the Upper Rhone Valley. Brig is one of the larger towns in Rhone Valley, although it's not a big tourist centre. This town acts as the best base to explore a wider region, with a nice little town centre hosting many shops and restaurants! Not to mention, this town boasts the Stockalper Palace, one of the most important baroque buildings in Switzerland.
  • Glacier Express

    By all means, The Glacier Express is the slowest express train in the world. The train was given that title as the journey takes around 8 hours. However, there is a good reason for its slow pace. As it squeezes its way through the Alps, through narrow valleys and tight curves. Not to mention, 91 tunnels and across 291 bridges. Enjoy the spectacular views through the panoramic sealed windows. If you travel in October, the brilliantly coloured trees make the trip a special experience. In Winter, the special touch is the large amounts of snow! But, that's not to stay you can't travel in Spring. That time offers the perfect combination of snowy mountains and green valleys. No Swiss rail package would be complete without the Glacier Express!
  • St Moritz

    Without a doubt, St Moritz is Switzerland's original winter wonderland and the cradle of Alpine tourism. Chic, elegant and exclusive with a cosmopolitan ambiance. It has been luring royals, celebrities, and moneyed wannabes since 1864. Generally, visitors indulge in the pleasures of nature, sports and culture. But some will simply relax admiring the beautiful scenery. Not to mention, St Mortiz has hosted the Winter Olympics twice and the skiing conditions are great from Christmas until April!
  • Bernina Express

    The Bernina Express panoramic train connects the North of Europe to its south. Evidently, crossing the Alps in the Bernina Express is one of the most spectacular ways to do it! During the train journey, you will travel over the 65-metre-high Landwasser Viaduct, the signature structure of the Rhaetian Railway and the UNESCO World Heritage site. Altogether, the train passes through 55 tunnels and over 196 bridges! With this part of the Swiss rail package, you will be treated to marvelous sights like the Montebello curve, with a view of the Bernina massif.
  • Lugano

    Lugano, the leading city of the Italian-speaking Swiss canton of Ticino. The town sprawls luxuriously along the shores of Lake Lugano. A splashy, zesty, Mediterranean ambiance that exists here attracts visitors from the rainy north. Not forgetting the sunshine, lush vegetation, inviting lake and luxurious shopping boutiques here. Lugano is an eclectic destination that has a lot to offer visitors. Whether you're seeking peace and relaxation or adrenaline and thrills. Mouth-watering food or refined culture, there's something for everyone.
  • Gotthard Panorama Express

    The final express train on this Swiss rail package, the Gotthard Panorama Express. Another phenomenal train journey taking you from the Mediterranean south right through the heart of Switzerland. Of course, you pass through the Gotthard tunnel that was built in 1882. During the route, you will see the church of Wassen from three different angles. All due to the bold railway layout with many loop tunnels! Coupled with the beautiful sights are presentations about history, myths, and legends around Gotthard. Finally, the culinary aspect! Indulge in warm meals on the steamboat, or enjoy snacks and beverages on the train!
  • Lucerne

    Straightway you understand why Lucerne is called 'a pocket-sized version of Switzerland'. History, culture and of course, spectacular scenery come together in a perfect blend. Switzerland's fourth-largest lake is here. with the nearby mountain tops glistening all year round. By all means, Lucerne has a curious history, with an ongoing debate of when the city was actually founded. Given that you're visiting Lucerne for a few days, don't miss out on Mt. Pilatus!
  • Bern

    Basically, the Swiss capital has more of a small-town feel rather than a city. This, coupled with its well-preserved medieval buildings make it an instantly endearing place to visit. Spend most of your time in Bern Old Town, as there are plenty of hidden gems to discover. Bears are the symbol of Bern. For that reason, visit them in the city's bear park. Home to a captive population for decades! Did you know Einstein spent about two years living in Bern? Visit the apartment where he lived, Einstein-Haus! Located near the clock tower Zytglogge.
  • Geneva

    In truth, Geneva may look bland on the surface. One of the diplomatic hubs of the world and is packed full of international businesses and corporations. However, it manages to attract visitors from every part of the world, for leisure and business alike. Despite this, while here you will quickly see that there isn't anywhere quite like it! Geneva sits on the shore of the impressively large Lake Geneva. In fact, it is one of the largest freshwater lakes in all of Europe! Larger-than-life is an understatement when talking about the many and varied monuments. The most important monument being the Jet d'Eau. A great ending to the ultimate Swiss rail package!
