This Unesco scenic train ride offers fantastic views and is a great activity to do when in Switserland. We did a two way trip on one day which is a bit much (9 hours). Better to stay overnight somewhere along the route.

A stunning trip through the alps. A bistro cart for buying merchandise and refreshments. Window between carriages open to avoid glare.
