Getting Around Switzerland
  Zurich Travel Tip

A train every hour on every line has been the motto of the Swiss Federal Railways for ages. That's a lot of trains, since over 5,000 km of railway tracks crisscross the small country (220 km running North to South and 348 km running East to West). Major hubs like Zurich and Geneva, with train stations right at the airports, are less than four hours apart and simple connections to jet-setting resorts such as Gstaad, and to scenic sites such as Jungfraujoch, the highest railway station in Europe, make train travel fun, exhilarating and rewarding.

Swiss Travel System

Swiss Pass. With a Swiss Pass you will be entitled to unlimited travel on the entire network of the Swiss Travel System. This includes the Swiss Federal Railways, most private railroads, lake steamers, postal coaches and the urban transit system in most cities. On most excursions to mountain tops a discount of 25% is granted. All Swiss Passes are valid on consecutive days. Pass options include 4 days, 8 days, 15 days and 1 month.

The Swiss Flexi-Pass is valid for three days (additional days, up to nine, can be purchased and offers the same benefits as the regular Swiss Pass, however you can chose your three days of travel during a thirty day period.

The Swiss Card is basically a discount card to be used towards the purchase of a transportation ticket. You will only pay 50% of the regular fare. In addition, it entitles you to two free transfers. Your first transfer is activated upon arrival at any Swiss airport. Your second transfer terminates the validity of your card on the day of departure back to the airport. .

Swiss Family Cards are available free of charge for children under the age of sixteen to parents holding a Swiss Flexi- Pass, Swiss Card or Swiss Pass.
