For those who appreciate the splendours of nature, there can be
no place better than stunning Switzerland. A destination where the
towns and cities spill over into the incomparable countryside with
astonishing effects, this is certainly a country that has to be
seen by rail. And on board the Glacier Express, the 'slowest
express train in the world', is a fine way to do it, as the
leisurely pace allows passengers to truly absorb the awe-inspiring
Alpine landscape in all seasons.
Austria and Germany are home to some of the Imperial capitals
established by the Hapsburg empire. Vienna with its elegant,
artistic style, and Berlin with its turbulent history and resilient
monuments both offer an inspiring insight into the changes of
mainland Europe throughout the ages.
Just beyond your front door, you can enjoy the very best that
the United Kingdom has to offer. Climb aboard the North Yorkshire
Moors Railway, the most visited heritage railway in England thanks
to it's breathtaking scenery, and picturesque railway stations
along the way. On the Isle of Man, uncover an incredible amount of
history that still comes alive on the island, with horse-drawn
trams, steam railways, and castles that are beloved by visitors
from all around the world.
