Interrail Switzerland Pass – Get Yours

When talking about passes, there are two main types that you can choose from: Eurail or Interrail. Below is an extended list of available passes:

Eurail Switzerland Pass – Get Yours

In case you are a non-European citizen and resident, your trip just got upgraded. Purchasing the Eurail Select Pass enables you to visit 2, 3 or 4 bordering countries in one trip! This means that you can use the public transportation network in Switzerland, French, Germany and Italy with only one pass.

Please keep in mind that this type of pass is only available to you if you were born and living outside Europe.

For those of you who are European citizens and residents, the Interrail Global Pass offers you a large variety of countries you can visit within the same trip.

Choose your Eurail Switzerland Pass

As there isn’t an Eurail One Country Pass that is valid exclusively in Switzerland, you will need to get an Eurail Global Pass or an Eurail Select Pass instead. Here’s an example of the prices for a Two Country Eurail Select Pass between Switzerland and Germany.

5 Great Reasons to Interrail in Switzerland

Switzerland is so much more than delicious chocolate and excellent cheese so make sure you keep your options open and your camera close by. Here are some reasons why you should start your journey to Switzerland.

Scenery

Wherever you look, you are surrounded by the majestic Alps. You can either follow hiking tracks or simply use the cable car, funicular or cog railways. The Swiss have made it easy for you to admire the wonderful scenery as comfortable as possible. The icon of the Swiss Alps sure is the Matterhorn, which will amaze you with its beautiful stillness and difficult tracks. The legendary mountain is 4,478 meters high and challenges hikers every year.

Specialities

The popularity of the Swiss products has long crossed the country’s borders and represents a symbol of quality and immortality. The Swiss watches still are an item that can be passed down to younger generations. There’s even a Watch Valley in Western Switzerland, which is known for the famous watch stores. We’re sure you have already heard about their famous cheese, but did you know there are over 400 varieties and some of them are even restricted to being produced only in Switzerland?

Diversity

The rich variety of traditions, language and events make Switzerland a land of cultural diversity. The country is home to several European cultures and has three official languages: German, Italian and French. The country is split into 26 cantons, each with a different rhythm and vibe. This may very well be one of the reasons you need to travel throughout the country – to grasp the full experience that is Switzerland. You will meet very different people with very different backgrounds along the way, so don’t forget to be open minded and ready for adventure!

Nightlife

The Swiss sure do know how to party so make sure you eat well that delicious traditional food and rest before going out. People say that the city of Lausanne is the best place for spending some night to remember as there is a great variety of clubs and bars for all kinds of tastes and preferences. Zurich is not bad either, with the highest number of clubs and concert venues in Europe.

Geneva Festival

Fêtes de Genève is the biggest event happening in Switzerland during summer. There are about 200 concerts with incredibly various music genres. And that’s not it. The fireworks show is one of a kind, while the restaurants and bars make the place cozy and fun at the same time. The festival has a long history, as it has been organized for 95 years now and is still gathers people from all around the world.

Interrail / Eurail Switzerland – what to do, where to go?

Here are some of our favourite ‘must-go’ places that you can plan into your Interrail Switzerland trip. Everyone has different tastes, so pick and choose the ones that sound cool to you!

Interlaken

Interlaken actually means ‘between lakes’ and it really is situated between Lake Thun and Lake Brienz. The town is a famous winter sports destination, with amazing slopes and hiking tracks. The scenery is sure to amaze you as well, as you will be surrounded by three impressive mountains: Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau.

Another way to admire the scenery is by taking a cruise on the historic paddle steamers down Lake Thun or Lake Brienz. There are also many funiculars, one of them taking you up to the Panorama Restaurant, where you can experience the feeling of having the whole world at your feet.

Geneva

This is one of the most famous cities of Switzerland and could easily be perceived as the capital city due to its notoriety. The cosmopolitan city is well known for its hotels, luxurious sites and lots of shops. But there’s something for the free-spirited as well, as the city is made mostly of parks and can easily be visited by bike for example.

It is also hosts the headquarters to important international organizations, such as the United Nations or the European Organization for Nuclear Research. You can even visit the latter, and learn more about how the protons accelerator works.

Zermatt

Zermatt is a great destination for those of you who love winter sports. You do not even have to worry about getting your Interrail or Eurail Switzerland Pass during the winter, as skiing and snowboarding are possible all year round due to the high altitude.

Even the journey to Zermatt is amazing, as the train ride is a marvellous experience itself. You will be finding your way through the Alps and merry meadows just as mentioned in the stories with Heidi. One of the most photographed mountains can be seen from Zermatt, as it also represents the icon of the Swiss Alps. It is the Matterhorn, of course, as seen on that delicious package of chocolate.

Zurich

The capital city sure is a sophisticated one from culture to nightlife and local-branded products. Lake Zurich is also famous for its scenery, pedal boats and diversity of restaurants and cafés just waiting for you to discover.

The old town is divided in two main parts by the river and offer a wonderful view. The Bahnhofstrasse holds a great variety of stores and is the perfect place to pick a souvenir for your loved ones. A day trip to the magnificent Rhine Falls will sure awe you – it has a width of 150 meters (492 feet) and has a height of 23 meters (75.5 feet).

Brig

Brig has a little bit of everything. It is a good destination if you are into winter sports, such as skiing or snowboarding and for the ones who wish to relax, there are some marvellous thermal baths. You can enjoy yourself in warm water while gazing at the sky and at the Alps.

For the history lovers, there’s the Stockalper Palace, one of the most famous ones in Switzerland. It was built in the 17th century and still attracts thousands of visitors with its gardens of roses, the monastery and church.
