Panoramic Trains

A look out of the train window, the postal coach or from the deck of a paddle steamer shows the whole scenic wealth of Switzerland and the unlimited variety of this country, where just a few kilometers or an interesting train-ride connects high-mountain glaciers and Mediterrean-like palm gardens.

A journey on one or several of the legendary panoramic routes connecting the most beautiful regions of Switzerland by train, bus or boat, is considered the highlight of any Switzerland trip:

Glacier Express

A 7.5 hour train ride from St.Moritz to Zermatt. The classical journey over 291 bridges and through 91 tunnels on the train dubbed as the world’s slowest fast train.

Bernina Express / Heidi Express

A 4 hour train ride from Chur/Davos to Tirano,and continuation by bus to Lugano. The alternative breathtaking north-south Alpine crossing.

Golden Pass Line

A 7.5 – 8-hour train ride from Lucerne via the Bernese Oberland, Gstaad and Montreux to Geneva. It is the scenic alternative to the direct journey in the Intercity train.

William Tell Express

Approximately a 5 hour journey by boat and train from Lucerne to Lugano/Locarno and vice versa. This is the leisurely but exciting connection between Central Switzerland and the Ticino, via the Lake of Lucerne and the Gotthard route.
