Switzerland has some of the most beautiful trains in the world. The railway system of the Swiss Confederation (SBB), famous for its exceptional punctuality and efficiency, is an example of the excellence of modern transportation. Linking beautiful towns and cities, as well as mountains and lakes, it offers travelers an unparalleled experience of comfort and stunning scenery, as they sail through the heart of the Alps.
The train in Switzerland is part of the trip, on the road, touring the country with this transport to see its sights is an adventure, more than when we talk about reaching its peaks. Many of them are must-sees when you travel the country. We are talking, for example, about Pilatus, the steepest railway in the world that attracts thousands of visitors every year to the 2,132-meter-high mountain. Pilatus, the main mountain of Lucerne, is one of the most mythical places in the center of Switzerland, but also one of the most beautiful. On a clear day, offers the possibility to see up to 73 alpine peaks.
Its history is full of myths and legends, so it receives many visits. No one wants to miss its views and the possibility of climbing here. The massif is connected to Lucerne by a cable car and aerial funicular, and from Alpnachstad by the steepest railway in the world. All this allows you to make a circuit aboard a paddle steamer, a rack railway, an aerial funicular, or a bus, trips that can also be combined with various sports or excursions.
In this sense, Railways in Europe recently announced that some of the most spectacular cable cars, trains, and mountain attractions in Switzerland, such as the Gornergrat, the Harderbahn, the Titlis Rotair, or the Jungfraujoch, are also known as the ‘Swiss Mountain Peaks’, available now. of Rail Europe, for operators in the tourism sector and for individuals, through its website.
