Scenic Swiss Trains in a Nutshell

Jump to last reply

SCENIC SWISS TRAINS IN A NUTSHELL

I've been riding trains around Switzerland practically since they began laying down rails in this Alpine Wonderland. And although any rail line in Switzerland, slicing thru cow pastures, past flower-bedecked chalet houses and hills or mountains always in the background, etc., is scenic and often awesomely scenic some of course are more scenic then others.
What follows are what i, subjectively of course, consider to be my most scenic lines - others will have varying opinions however and as always are welcome to incorporate their opinions here and this will be must appreciated as i love insights of others on a topic i love so much.

1- Bernina Express
2- Jungfrau Railways Interlaken-Grindelwald-Kleine Scheidegg-Wengen-Lauterbrunnen-Interlaken
3- Gornegrat Railway Zermatt
4- Grutschalp-Murren
5- Martigny-Chamonix
6- Chur-St Moritz
7- Brig-Zermatt
8- Interlaken-Spiez-Lotschberg (old line)
9- Brunig Pass Interlaken-Lucerne
10- Golden Pass Interlaken-Zweissimmen-Montreux
11- Gotthard line Lucerne/Zurich to Lugano
12- Glacier Express Chur-Brig
13- Lausanne-Montreux-Brig up the Rhone Valley
14 - Lake Lucerne to the summit of Rigi
14- Centovalli Domodossola-Locarno
15 - Landquart-Davos-Filisur
16 - Lake Lucerne to Rigi
and others
Note - Alpnachstad to summit of Mt Pilatus; Appenzell Train and St Moritz-Scuol Tarasp lines not rated - not yet taken yet.

As always interested in others opinions on these or other scenic Swiss trains!
