The most delightful way to explore Switzerland. Trains, buses and boats are geared up to take travellers to their destinations – comfortably and right on time. Navigating the world’s densest transport network, trains run like clockwork: on all routes and always at the same minute after every full and half hour. Get on board – it’s worth it!

Travelling by public is not only spectacular but brings passengers also to the starting point of any given hiking trip. Thanks to train, bus, boat and mountain railways hiking in Switzerland is very simple.

For example at Lake Geneva: Visitors enjoy the wonderful view of the lake and the vineyards of the Lavaux region as well as its wines. Those who have a taste for excellence wine may choose to travel on or return by train, bus or boat after three hours of hiking through the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Starting point for the hike is Lutry, which can be reached by public transport. At the end of the eleven-kilometre hike, at St. Saphorin, a train is waiting to take passengers home.
