Switzerland by train, bus and boat
There are many reasons to explore Switzerland by public transport. First and foremost, it is the best way to enjoy the unparalleled panorama in a truly relaxed atmosphere. Also, seamless connections are guaranteed - whether by train, bus, boat or mountain railway. Last but not least, all of this can be done with just one single ticket: the Swiss Travel Pass.
Switzerland possesses not only the densest public transport network in the world but also one of the most popular ones. Some 29,000 kilometres of rail, road and waterway cover the country like a finely woven network. Comfortable and punctual connections promise a hassle-free onward journey - from the airport or border station or from neighbouring countries. Connections are always assured: Even as high up as 3,800 metres a.s.l., public transport services are coordinated to perfection.
The Swiss Travel System offers travellers from abroad the possibility to discover excursion destinations, mountains, lakes and more than 500 museums with one single ticket: the Swiss Travel Pass. Holders of this ticket can explore Switzerland in 3, 4, 6, 8 or 15 days.
