Few countries have the allure of Switzerland, particularly when it comes to rail holidays. Glass-roofed trains cater specifically to those who travel in their droves to experience the snow-capped peaks, awe-inspiring glaciers and cosmopolitan cities that make up this small but perfectly formed country.
Travel on the Glacier Express from the foothills of the Matterhorn to the world-famous resort of St Moritz. Take a train to the highest station in Europe at Jungfraujoch or glide across crystal-clear lakes on a boat cruise. Take a trip to Mount Titlis, near the quaint village of Engelberg, or visit the dramatic Rhine Falls in Schaffhausen. There are also the cities – Zurich, Lausanne and Bern are just some of the cities that lure in visitors from all over the world.
Take the train through France to Interlaken, surrounded by the wonders of the Bernese Oberland. Then catch the Belle Epoque or modern panoramic carriages of the Golden Pass line through stunning scenery to Montreux on Lake Geneva.
Make the most of your winter holiday with a scenic journey through the Alps. Travel from Cologne, through the Rhine Gorge to Salzburg, by panorama coach to Chur, across Switzerland to Zermatt with the Glacier Express and then back to London via Strasbourg.
Journey to the foot of the Matterhorn in Zermatt, then take the world's slowest express train, the Glacier Express, on its full run through to St Moritz. Return home via the Rhine Valley and a night in Cologne.
