Austria & Switzerland Escorted Rail Holidays

Would you prefer the tranquil crystal lakes and waterfalls of the Austrian Tyrol or the glittering cities of Salzburg and Vienna? View Switzerland's dramatic peaks along the Oberalp Pass from the comfort of the legendary Glacier Express or by visiting the invigorating Swiss resorts of picture perfect Kandersteg or fashionable Montreux. Perhaps discover the dramatic Dolomites in Italy for an entirely different Alpine experience.

All of Great Rail Journeys alpine tours include a range of excursions to satisfy even the most thirsty of cultural appetites. Should you decide to venture off and explore on your own the tour manager will be able to advise you on a number of issues. Once you have decided to view cultural, historical or natural sights your tour manager can recommend a variety of points of interest, will be able to assist you in matters of alpine safety and find the best places to stop for lunch.

Classic Glacier Express in Winter
26/Mar
Kay Margiotta
5 stars
“The glacier express was an amazing journey through the alps. The scenery is stunning can't put it in to words. While on the train it started snowing heavily it looked like a winter wonderland. The train is very comfortable and we had dinner on the train which was lovely and the service was good. A great experience I won't forget

“We very much enjoyed this mini adventure, The hotel was typically Austrian - good food and comfortable. We liked the tour manager and delighted in the wonderful hotels in Mannheim and Cologne on the journeys. We think that it was a very busy holiday; we realised this I’m advance but good to know.

“Excellent holiday, the hotel and variety of excursions were very very good. The single room was one of the best I have ever had. The tour manager was always on the ball, and the trains were of a very high standard, with the exception of the Colmar to Basel one. The food choice in the restaurant was limited - just a meat or vegetarian choice. The Sherpr service requires sending your luggage nearly 2 weeks early and at time of writing (a week after returning) I await the return of my case. Being based in a single hotel meant no packing and unpacking, and to say convenient for the station is an understatement. Switzerland is beautiful ,as was the great weather we were fortunate to have.

Winter in Europe is a magical time, filled with Christmas markets, snow topped mountains, glaciers, and Glühwein. But winter holidays do require a little more thought when it comes to packing than summer holidays. T shirts and swimsuits are easy, but considering the temperatures and the equipment you might need to make the most of a winter holiday is a bit more in depth. To get the right ratio between having everything you need and packing light for travelling can be tricky, but never fear, here’s our handy guide to packing the essentials for a winter holiday in Europe.
