Why Take a Train Tour in Switzerland and Austria?

As you travel through these alpine gems, you’ll encounter a wealth of cultural treasures and time-honored customs. From the yodeling and traditional Swiss cheese-making in Switzerland to the classical music heritage of Austria, each region offers a unique and enchanting experience that captivates the senses.

Switzerland’s first railway line opened in 1847 between Zurich and Baden, and Austria’s Semmering Railway, completed in 1854 as Europe’s first mountain railway, are testaments to pioneering travel. These historic railways have been modernized to provide a seamless travel experience, blending the charm of the past with the comforts of the present, and allowing you to traverse the alpine regions with ease.

Further enhancing your alpine adventure are the spectacular train journeys themselves. In Switzerland, the Glacier Express, often dubbed the “slowest express train in the world,” winds through spectacular valleys and over impressive viaducts, offering unparalleled scenic views. In Austria, the Semmering Railway, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, offers breathtaking panoramas of mountains and valleys, making each journey a visual feast.

No alpine journey would be complete without indulging in the culinary delights and traditional experiences that define Switzerland and Austria. Imagine savoring the rich flavors of Swiss fondue, raclette, and chocolate, and enjoying robust wines from Swiss vineyards. In Austria, the famous Wiener Schnitzel, Apfelstrudel, and the renowned coffeehouse culture await.

Whether dining in a cozy alpine hut, a historic café, or staring through the train window at the beautiful Alpine landscapes, each experience will be a highlight, adding depth and flavor to your journey through these enchanting regions.
