Travel Guide: Switzerland Getting Around

4th Nov 2011 1:52am | By Editor

Switzerland's rail system is one of the most efficient in the world.

Switzerland is a relatively small country and, thanks to its frequent and efficient train network, travelling around is easy — not to mention enjoyable.

Getting There

Zürich, Geneva and Basel are the major international airports in Switzerland but you could also fly into Milan Malpensa, which is just 25km away from the Swiss border. Check out the Swiss Federal Railways website for information on trains to Switzerland from other European countries.

Getting Around

No need for internal flights in this train-loving nation. Trains are frequent and on-time — it is a source of national pride — and you can save money by buying a Swiss travel pass. For destinations and timetables visit the Swiss Federal Railways site.

Consider making a train journey the highlight of your trip to Switzerland. Check out classic routes such as the Glacier Express from St Moritz to Zermatt or the Golden Pass from Lucerne though the Brünig Pass to Interlaken and onto Montreux.
