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!

    Better than flying |
    "Coming from Australia I assumed flights would be far better than trains but having the stations right in the centre of the city made it much more convenient and easier to manage without a phone. The train was smooth and quick. "

    Enjoy the landscape |
    "I recently travelled from Bruxelles Midi to CDG Paris. It was a freezing day, but the train was a speeding cocoon with refreshments and a wonderful view of the snowy landscape flashing by. The arrival at the airport went smoothly - it really is a hassle-less way to travel, and depending on when one buys the ticket, surprisingly cheap, even in first class. "
