SWITZERLAND & AUSTRIA SWISS RAIL JOURNEYS DESTINATIONS


A rail journey is a great way to admire Switzerland’s beauty, says Aby Dunsby

something incredibly pretty to look at, whether it’s mirror- like lakes, sparkling, snowy mountains or quaint, chocolate- box towns. When the view is this good, clients will want plenty of opportunities to soak it all in, and a rail journey offers a charming and unique way to appreciate the alpine scenery or travel through the country’s very different regions.


“We have found an increasing demand for worldwide touring holidays that include a rail journey because customers can experience and see far more of a country or region from a train,” say Keesia Samuels, Cosmos Tours & Cruises’ product and commercial manager. “Of course, Switzerland, with its breath- taking and spectacular lakeland and mountain landscapes, particularly lends itself to a scenic rail journey.” Boasting several rail routes


that continue to make it onto the world’s best rail journeys, travelling by train in Switzerland is nothing like your average commute. Clients can expect typical Swiss efficiency and high standards on board, making rail travel a straightforward and pleasant option that’s appealing for groups as well as single travellers. It’s also a relatively cheap way of getting around, thanks to the Swiss Travel Pass, which offers unlimited travel in the country


by public transport, plus entry to nearly 500 museums. Prices start from as little as £29 for three consecutive days’ travel, with passes available through Switzerland Tourism.


Clients needn’t be put off by the thought of spending their entire holiday on the train, either: various operators, including Leger Holidays and Kuoni, offer rail journeys as part of a broader holiday, with accommodation at numerous stop-offs along the way.
