Switzerland by train

The Swiss Railways are the best in Europe, travelling by a panoramic train through Switzerland is a holiday itself. Take the world famous Glacier Express from St Moritz to Zermatt over the Albula Railway, Rhine Canyon, Oberalppas to the pittoresque village of Zermatt. Or travel the Bernina Express over the more than 2200 metres high Bernina Pass from Chur into Tirano in Italy.

Many mountain summits are connected by frequent railways or cable cars.  Travel to the Jungfraujoch and enjoy the views over the Aletsch Glacier or take the Gornergrat-Railway from Zermatt and see the Matterhorn at it's best.
