Austria and Switzerland Tours

Austria & Switzerland

A moving display of mountain peaks sets the backdrop for two of Europe's most scenic countries, Austria and Switzerland. The similarities of these two countries are nearly as striking as their contrasts, and independent and escorted tours showcase these idiosyncrasies beautifully. Quaint alpine towns sit alongside cosmopolitan cities, and sparkling lakes complement sprawling meadows. From the Imperial heritage of Vienna to the car-free resort of Zermatt, discovering Austria and Switzerland by train is the easiest way to fall in love with this part of the world.

Travel from Cologne or Bavaria in Germany into the dramatic landscapes of Austria. Look upon scenes straight out of the "Sound of Music" and discover breathtaking mountainscapes and charming locales from one side of the country to the other. Colorful buildings and Medieval city sites collide in the capital of the Alps, Innsbruck. Musical history and baroque architecture give Salzburg a unique flair, and palaces and grand cathedrals fill Vienna's skyline. Of course, Vienna also sits alongside the beautiful Danube River, opening up a whole new world of possibilities for holidays. Crossing the border into Switzerland, even more awe-inspiring sights await aboard some of the world's most famous rail lines. Glacier-fed lakes and twisting mountain passes highlight the courses of the Bernina Express and the GoldenPass Panoramic. The Jungfrau Railroad climbs to the top of Europe. These prestigious rail lines pave the way between beloved destinations, like St. Moritz, Lucerne, and Interlaken. While each of these countries shines in its own right, combining them into thoughtfully orchestrated vacation packages makes Austria and Switzerland tours some of the most memorable in Central Europe.

Vienna, Salzburg & Munich

“THE TRIP WAS WONDERFUL! I wish to compliment the Piaristenkeller in Vienna. Owner Erick E. personally gave us historical tour of his restaurant and the mini museum it houses. Wow! Karen, our guide, for Salzburg walking tour was excellent! The private transfers were quality and our even our final trip to airport ended with another detailed historical explanation of passing architecture and the rulers responsible. My journal records our experiences. It is over 45 pages long. I am happy to recommend Agent Hilary! We will travel again on Vacations By Rail for sure!

Best of Switzerland by Rail

5 stars
“Our tour manager, Oliver Treacy was excellent and accommodating to our travelers. Would like to have him again on a trip. It would have been helpful for him to use the radios when speaking so those with difficulty could hear easily. I would have liked more local specialists and staying in each place x2 nights to see the city we were in. It was wonderful NOT to feel rushed in the mornings with bags and early leaving times as we have experienced on coach tours.

“The trip itself was 5 star, the only reason I rated it down was I felt there could have been more communication prior to the trip. The trains are fabulous and Switzerland is beautiful!
