Travelling through Switzerland on the Grand Train Tour of Switzerland is even more ecological. With just one train ticket, guests can travel comfortably through the whole of Switzerland: lean back, look out of the window and enjoy.

One section of the Grand Tour of Switzerland runs through the canton of Zurich. The section between Einsiedeln and Schaffhausen along the beautiful Lake Zurich offers many views and sights.

It's worth stopping off for a stroll on the wooden bridge between Rapperswil and Hurden, for example. Or to admire Sechseläutenplatz and the opera house in Zurich. Zurich's famous Grossmünster and Fraumünster churches are also much more interesting up close. In the former industrial city of Winterthur, the Fotomuseum Winterthur offers surprising impressions and the Kunsthaus enchants art lovers with the most important modern art collection in Zurich.
