Some say there is no boring train ride in Switzerland - even the regular routes offer great panorama’s, but hereby a arbitrary list of some of the highlights of Swiss train travel: 

Glacier Express

The Glacier Express is the maybe the most famous scenic train in Switzerland - and by reason. The slowest Intercity in the world from Zermatt to St Moritz travels through the Rhone valley.  Many bridges, tunnels and wilderness. Beautiful panorama’s ensured! 

Tip: book a lunch on board of the train!

Just a short ride from Luzern you find this cogwheel climbing the very steep Pilatus. The whole ride and of course at the top there are amazing views of the Vierwaldstattersee and the Alps. The Pilatusbahn is included in the Swiss Travel Pass.
