Scenic Trains of Switzerland


Have you ever considered going on a train ride? If so, I suggest you enjoy one of the beautiful scenic train rides of Switzerland. As you ride on one of these amazing trains you will take in some of the most breathtaking sites you have ever set your eyes upon. The hardest part will be deciding which rail line to hop aboard.

Three of the most popular trains are the GoldenPass, the Bernina Express and the Glacier Express.


The GoldenPass Line connects Montreux to Lucerne via a tourist-orientated train route in the Swiss Alps. We highly suggest the Panoramic Line as it offers some very unique features such as panoramic windows that allow you to immerse yourself in the nature outside. The GoldenPass line also has a cheese train and a chocolate train that are sure to tickle your taste buds if you prefer a different type of sensory experience while you travel.

Bernina Express

The Bernina Express connects Chur in Switzerland to Poschiavo and Tirano in Italy by crossing the Swiss Engadin Alps. The railway is unique and blends beautifully with the surrounding alpine lanscapes of the Albula and Bernina Passes. The train travel through 55 tunnels, 196 bridges and inclines of up to 70 per mile with ease. The highest point of your journey will take you 7,391 feet above sea level at Ospizio Bernina.

Glacier Express

The Glacier Express is the most famous railway in the world. It travels from Zermatt to Davos or St. Moritz in around seven and a half hours. The train is often referred to as the “world’s slowest express train.” The day trip features a ride through untouched mountain landscapes, glamorous health resorts, deep gorges, delightful valleys, 91 tunnels and across 291 impressive bridges.

Of course, these are only three of the Swiss trains. There are several other options and we would love to discuss them with you. Are you ready to book your scenic Switzerland train ride? Call Travel Makers at (800) 379-5552 and let’s get started planning your trip today!
