"SBB" Switzerland Transportation Tip by Subria

Switzerland Transportation: 243 reviews and 256 photos


The 'Schweizerische Bundesbahnen' (Swiss Federal Railways) offer good value for money. The network covers the whole country and the departures are frequent. They have new trains and almost always run on time. During the ride you can enjoy the landscape, especially scenic are the routes of Bernina Express or Golden Pass. For local trains you have to buy the tickets at the station, on Intercity trains you can also buy them on board, but you have to pay a surcharge. Foreigners are also able to buy special passes which offer unlimited travel on the whole network.
