Travelling for leisure by train is, quite simply, one of life’s great pleasures. And nowhere is that more true than on the Rhaetian Railway. The RhB, as it’s known, offers a whole series of magnificent, truly special train routes and travel experiences that will stay with you for a lifetime.
For starters, there’s the famed Bernina Express, one of the most spectacular train journeys in the world – a bold claim indeed, but one you’ll wholeheartedly agree with as you pass glaciers, palm trees (yes, you really do see both glaciers and palm trees on the same route) and all manner of other incredible scenery. It’s not difficult to see why part of the route was awarded UNESCO World Heritage Status.
So, what could possibly improve such a unique and special trip? How about excellent local food and wine? You’ll find both on-board RhB trains, including traditional favourites like fondue (of course!) and regional specialities served in cosy, beautiful dining cars.
And it’s not just the train journeys that’ll blow you away. How about mixing things up a bit by adding in some active adventuring? No problem. There are tons of hiking and biking opportunities and packages along the Rhaetian Railway network of routes, giving you another way of taking in that immense scenery. Best of all, you can hop back on to a train whenever you feel like it.
Whether you’re looking for culture, history, culinary indulgence, active pursuits or all of the above, the Rhaetian Railway really is the smart way to travel around Switzerland. See you on-board!
