Switzerland Train Tours
Bordered by Germany, France, and Italy, Switzerland is a
country of juxtapositions where each region reflects the language,
culture, and cuisine of its neighbors. Swiss tour packages
highlight these unique areas while presenting the majesty of the
landscape - the mighty snow-capped mountains, the sparkling lakes,
and the vast meadows. Travel through charming alpine towns that
epitomize the beauty of Switzerland or set out on adventures into
the country's great cities. Acclaimed destinations, such as the
capital city of Bern, with its medieval Clock Tower and Muenster
Cathedral; Lucerne and its historic Chapel Bridge; and Geneva, home
to international peacekeeping organizations and its renowned Flower
Clock; and Zurich, the financial epicenter of the country, are
brought to life through thoughtfully crafted tourism packages.
Select Swiss rail tours also include time in Switzerland's quaint
resort towns, like the cosmopolitan town of St. Moritz, which is
known as the place where winter alpine tourism was popularized;
Montreux on the shores of Lake Geneva; and the car-free town of
Zermatt, located at the base of the Matterhorn.
Switzerland tours packages often
include journeys aboard the country's acclaimed scenic trains.
There is no better way to enjoy the incredible vistas than aboard
the Glacier Express, the Bernina Express, or the GoldenPass Panoramic
Express. A sightseeing train that travels aboard Europe's
highest rack railway, the Gornergrat Railway offers a shorter ride
with an unmatched view of the Matterhorn. A train trip in
Switzerland is wonderful on its own; however, some escorted rail
vacation packages connect with a cruise along the Rhine River for an
even more memorable experience. Perfect for honeymoons and for
family adventures in any season, Switzerland vacations are your
ticket to some of the most impressive scenery in the world.
