"Another trip for real..." Switzerland Transportation Tip by Toby_Swiss

Switzerland Transportation: 240 reviews and 254 photos


Another trip for real railway-fans and besides a good way to get to know even the last corner of Switzerland is the Centovalli-train with takes you from Locarno/Ticino to Domodossola/IT.

Through steep gorges and over high and old bridges the train is climbing up slowly to the Swiss/Italian border. You experience all those small villages from quite near, you see old men sitting outside their houses waving you when passing by - you see everybody in the train doing nothing else than staring out of the window... Arriving in Domodossola take the train through the Simplon tunnel to Brig and you're back in Switzerland.
