Switzerland – wine land: take the train from Geneva to Brig, and you’ll discover the Lavaux vineyards – a divinely beautiful landscape between Lausanne and Montreux – and a UNESCO World Heritage site since 2007.
These towns make Switzerland tick: The Jura Foot Line links not only two of Switzerland’s largest cities but also the German and French-speaking parts of the country. And in between – lovely lakeland and the hills of the gentle Jura.
The Bernese Oberland valley railroad was opened in 1890 and has been been electrified since 1914. It connects Interlaken (Interlaken East) with Grin with Grindelwald and Lauterbrunnen. Besides serving the resort towns, it also enables access to the world famous Jungfraujoch-Top of Europe.
Where town meets country: There’s much to discover between Lucerne und Chur. Such as Zurich, for example. This busy, bustling metropolis on the lake of the same name is Switzerland’s largest city.
