5 Rail Experiences in Switzerland You Probably Didn't Know Existed

Switzerland / Train Travel | January 20, 2020

Train travel in Switzerland is an incredible experience. This country is home to some of the most scenic train journeys in the world, including the Glacier and Bernina Express! But did you know you can also enjoy the majestic beauty and diversity of Switzerland by taking these lesser known trains? 1.

To reach Mürren from Lauterbrunnen, take the aerial cable car across the street from the Lauterbrunnen train station.Then, connect to the cogwheel rail from Grütschalp, which runs along the cliff and offers magnificent views. The whole journey takes about 30 minutes and drops you off at the Mürren rail station, at the opposite end of town from the cable car stop and a short walk away. There are departures every 15 to 30 minutes. 2. Harder Kulm Harder Kulm is known as the top of Interlaken. The Harder Railway valley station is just a short walk from the Interlaken-Ost railway station. There, you’ll board a modern glass roofed funicular to Harder Kulm.
