Hi there,

I will be traveling to Switzerland by end of november till december 9 for approximately 10 days via Zurich and will be staying there for 2 days, then I will be base in Interlaken for the next 7 days.. I am truly in love with Swiss scenic views and countryside. I really appreciate if anyone can help me planning a trip specially a route passing through the famous LANDWASSER VIADUCT and probably to the nearest border to italy if possible?? I wander if Interlaken or Zurich is a good base for this journey? I'll be traveling back home on the dec. 9 via Zurich. I would like to ask also which Swiss travel pass can you recommend for my journey.

Thank you.

Welcome Andrei!

The Landwasser viaduct is not close to Zurich nor Interlaken. If you 're willing to spend one night in or near St. Moritz, this is what you could do: from Interlaken, travel to Brig, follow the Glacier Express route to St. Moritz, passing the viaduct. The official Glacier Express does not operate in November, but there are regular trains too. The next day, you could pass the viaduct again on your way to Chur. Change trains for Zurich there.

Make sure to leave Interlaken very early so you won't pass the viaduct when it's dark.

You best pick a pass when you have decided on your itinerary. If you plan to travel a lot, an 8-day Swiss Travel Pass might work (you won't need it to explore Zurich).

Does this make sense?

Hi Andrei-

Adding to Arno's comments -

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ Landwasser_Viaduct

Planning a rail journey in Switzerland gives superb results if you use two tools - a map, and the timetable.

This map has been focused on Filisur, near the Landwasser viaduct.
