Personal Travel Manager’s Grand Rail Tour of Switzerland


PTM Emily Turner’s favourite Swiss famil highlight was visiting Jungfraujoch and its mountaintop attractions, including the Ice Cave

For TravelManagers’ Emily Turner, her time at Jungfraujoch ranked as the figurative and literal pinnacle of a week-long Swiss famil that focused on exploring this wonderland by rail.

While at the aptly named ‘Top of Europe’, Turner and the rest of her famil group spent their time soaking up the breath-taking views from the railway station’s viewing platforms, exploring the other-worldly sculpture galley of the Ice Palace, and sampling the delights of Lindt Swiss Chocolate Heaven.

As one would expect from an itinerary designed and hosted by Switzerland Tourism and Rail Europe, the train ride up to Jungfraujoch was not the only spectacular rail journey the group experienced during their time in Switzerland.

All-in-one, first-class Swiss Rail Passes provided the famil group with access to major cities such as Zurich, Lucerne, Basel, smaller towns like Montreux and Vevey, and the incredible alpine scenery that is made easily accessible by Switzerland’s impressive rail network.

“The efficiency and comfort of Swiss trains is second to none, the option of arranging door to door luggage transfers is well worth the investment, and I now have first-hand knowledge of lovely hotels that are within easy reach of the train stations at each destination we visited.”
