Snow-capped hills in winter and lively bathing areas in summer: Zurich always has a lot to offer beyond the clichés of banks, luxury shops and chocolate. What other city can boast a crystal-clear lake in its centre, a romantic old town and an alpine panorama? You can already start dreaming of the diverse beauty to come during the journey, because the Nightjet takes you comfortably and affordably from Vienna and Graz or by EuroNight from Villach overnight to the Swiss metropolis.
The timetable during the day: There are 5 daily Railjet Xpress flights from Vienna, and there are also 6 daily flights to Zurich from Salzburg, Innsbruck and Vorarlberg. From Bregenz also 6x daily with the Eurocity to St. Gallen, Winterthur or Zurich. For daytime travel, Sparschiene tickets are available for the entire country - even dream cities like Basel, Bern, Lucerne, Chur, St. Gallen and Geneva or holiday destinations like Davos, St. Moritz, Interlaken, Grindelwald and Zermatt are waiting to be discovered.
By the way: the Swiss Travel Pass allows you to explore the whole country by train, bus and boat on your own terms.
Lovers of beautiful landscapes can travel from Graz via Zell am See, Kitzbühel and Innsbruck once a day on the Eurocity Transalpin (EC163/164) in 1st class in a magnificent Panorama Coach to Zurich.
