More than half of the land in Switzerland is made up of the Alps. While the country is a hub for skiers and hikers, you don’t need to do either to enjoy its iconic mountains, thanks to an impressive train system that includes the highest railway station in Europe. The rails will give you the chance to experience everything Switzerland is celebrated for — from views of shimmering lakes backed by soaring peaks to fondue meals in cozy village restaurants.
In fact, Switzerland is so easy to navigate that in one week you can have a more varied vacation experience than you can find in most places — enjoying thrilling adventures one day and the sublime flavor of the world’s finest chocolate on another. Start by picking up an eight-day Swiss Travel Pass that covers all your trains, cable cars, and buses, and strap in for the ultimate tour of Switzerland in one week.
