Spectacular Train Journeys

Another of Switzerland’s unforgettable experiences available to your delegates and incentive winners is a trip on a scenic train, with quite a few of them doubling as transfers. “A fairytale on rails” is how some people describe the Glacier Express, a breathtaking journey through the alpine heartland. Passengers relax in comfort as they enjoy the view through huge panoramic windows. The Golden Pass Service connects Montreux to Interlaken, so steep in some places that the train has to operate on rack‑and‑pinion, it swiftly lifts off from practically sea level to nearly 914 m/3,000 ft above sea level. Domed coaches on the train offer superb views of the surrounding scenery. The William Tell Express is a boat‑cum‑train ride which takes riders to the Italian‑speaking region of Switzerland. Whether you would like to have an elegant lunch aboard the luxurious Nostalgic Orient Express or wish to hire it for transfers around the country, it is bound to be a highlight that people will talk about for a long time.

More than just meetings

Variety guaranteed! Imagine in the morning your colleagues are skiing high up on deep snow, at lunchtime they are in short sleeves, eating beneath palm trees in warm sunshine, in the afternoon, they choose between a shopping expedition and relaxing by a flower‑lined lake shore. In the evening, they tuck into a wholesome fondue high on the mountain slopes. Sounds far‑fetched? Far from it, in Switzerland such a program is perfectly possible in just one day. The trip from snowy peak to Riviera‑style lake shore can be little more than a few minutes by cable car.

Beautiful and clean landscape

A stone's throw away! Even from the largest Swiss cities it's easy to reach spectacular mountain landscapes in no time at all. Lakes and rivers are pure enough to drink from, while the alpine peaks give fresh perspective, and encourage fresh thinking.
