Discover Switzerland, the Great Rail way

Switzerland

Switzerland's scenery commands attention. Ancient glaciers that have slowly taken shape over millennia, age-old mountain peaks, lakes you just can't help but dip your toes in, and Alpine meadows that offer up a botanical feast for the eyes. These landscapes lend themselves effortlessly to the intrinsic charms of rail travel, so it's little wonder that Switzerland's rail journeys are among the most iconic, not to mention scenic, in the world.

Away from the wild allure of nature, chocolate-box villages, medieval towns and modern cities are waiting to be explored. Add in a rich history and enticing cuisine, who can resist Swiss chocolate and cheese, and you'll start to understand all this destination has to offer.

“Absolutely amazing from start to finish
Glacier Express in Winter
Ms C Hill
“A wonderful full itinerary, well organized and planned. The hotels were a great contrast...one in a town and one in a small village of typically Swiss wooden houses surrounded by mountains, and only accessible by train. The country was expensive, but the provided meals were good and local. Our group was friendly and a good mix of pleasant people, who all got on well. The weather couldn’t have been better....five days of sunshine for all the trips on the glacier and Bernina Express, so amazing views, then snow on the last day for a wonderful woodland walk from the chairlift above our last hotel. One of the best holidays we have had with Great Rail.

Lake Como & The Bernina Express
Anonymous
“A well organised tour led by a fantastic Tour Manager. The base hotel was excellent being on Lake Como shores, on the main route around the island and within a couple of minutes of the ferry stages. The day trips were well organised and the day trip on the Bernina Express a major highlight. Highly recommend this tour.

Discovering Switzerland with Great Rail Journeys

Spectacular glaciers, charming towns and magnificent Alpine views are only part of what Switzerland has to offer. Exploring by rail takes you through the different regions that make up an intriguing melting pot of German, Italian and French cultures. With so many natural, cultural and historic facets to explore, an escorted rail tour in Switzerland provides an exciting and rewarding alpine adventure for everyone.

Geographically, the Alps cover almost two thirds of Switzerland's total area and are largely responsible both for Switzerland's climate and for its long-established popularity as a tourist destination.

Traveller's Guide to Switzerland

Geographically, the Alps cover almost two thirds of Switzerland's total area and are largely responsible both for Switzerland's climate and for its long-established popularity as a tourist destination.

Switzerland's history follows a similar path to that of many other European countries in that its earliest settlers were displaced by the attentions of the Roman Empire. For the next few centuries Switzerland fell under Frankish (French) rule and subsequently became part of the Holy Roman Empire until gaining independence in 1648. A century and a half later, during the French Revolution, Switzerland was occupied by France once more but regained independence and neutrality via the Congress of Vienna in 1815. Since then, with the exception of minor involvement in the Second World War, Switzerland has retained its neutrality and independence and is a peaceable country.
