Travel inspiration in Zurich and Berlin
Zürich, the largest city of Switzerland
Zürich is a major financial centre and one of the most preferred Swiss destinations. In 2012, it was voted as the best city to live in Europe. It is an elegant metropolis on the lake bearing its name, with views over the snow-covered Alps, home to over 50 museums, 100 galleries, top hotels, shops and restaurants. Obviously it has to be Zürich! With its excellent public transport connections, this prime Swiss destination is ideal for excursions to the rest of the country. 5 days there, and you will get to know all about Zürich and neighbouring towns.
Berlin, capital of Germany
Berlin is the capital of Germany and also its largest city. It is located in the northeast of the country and is home to more than 4 million people. Did you know that Berlin is 9 times bigger than Paris and has 1,700 bridges, more than Venice?
After the World War II, the city was divided into two parts surrounded by the Berlin Wall. In 1989 the wall was destroyed, followed by the German reunification in 1990. As a result, Berlin regained its status as the capital of Germany. Having bounced back confidently from 20th century division, Berlin is has become one of Europe’s most exciting destinations.
Today Berlin, home to a multicultural population, is a city of culture, media, science and creativity.
Reviews & ratings Zurich - Berlin
I am glad I chose to travel by Rail Europe . We had a pleasant journey. Their prompt service- from delivering the tickets to my doorstep to the seats reserved made this trip most memorable.
I'm surprised when I found my reservation is not 1st class, and the staff of the lounge in Berlin don't accept my staying in the lounge.
I took City Night Line from Zurich to Berlin. the timing was ok, bt the train got delaided by couple of hrs and we had to change to a local train to reach Berlin. This might be an exception. but our experience was not so good on given day. otherwise, the eurail was quite fantastic throughout our journey in Netherlands, Belgium , Switzerland and Germany
I would like to share my impressions from this 12 hour trip in the couchette from Berlin Hbf to Zurich Hbf. We had originally Eurail Pass for two in 1st class, however, all sleeping compartments in 1st and 2nd class were already taken when I booked our seats in the sleeping compartment. However, from Basel to Zurich there were many free cabins in the 1st and 2nd class wagons. All we wanted was to have a quiet place to sit and have our breakfast with our own food, since both of us are vegan. We were not allowed to sit in these compartments and were treated very rudely. The restaurant was very expensive and services were very unfriendly as well. It was sad since this was our last and farewell travel before leaving to Thailand (land of smiles and politeness) and the first time for my husband in Europe.
