How does it feel to stand 3,454-metres-above-sea-level? Like you’re on top of the world – or at least Europe – especially when you’re gazing out over the mighty Aletsch Glacier and the countless 4,000-metre-high peaks surrounding it. See for yourself by visiting the Jungfraujoch, part of the first UNESCO World Heritage site in the Alps. Buying your travel ticket through SBB means you’ll enjoy a 20% reduction on your journey to Wengen or Grindelwald Terminal and back, as well as on your return journey up to the Jungfraujoch, known as the Top of Europe.
In Switzerland, winter isn’t a time for hibernating, it’s a time for exploration, adventure and experiencing more of this amazing country. Key to these adventures, of course, is travel. You’ll need to get to your starting point, you’ll need transport to help things go smoothly along the way, and to get you back home again.
Thankfully, that’s all easier than ever with SBB, who are offering a range of discounts on brilliant winter excursions when you travel by public transport. These discounts cover both the transport and the activities themselves (including money off museums and ski passes), and some offer a huge 20% off the regular train ticket price, on top of the 50% discount for anyone with a Half Fare Travelcard. Plus, these activities can be combined with the GA Travelcard or any other train ticket, like the Supersaver or Saver Day Pass.
That’s a whole lot of discounts, and they’re valid throughout the entire winter season. Here are six awesome winter excursions to warm the soul, all featuring hefty reductions when you purchase an SBB ticket.
