Insider tips about the Swiss Alps

  • The weather varies by the season, day, time, location and especially altitude. You'd best dress in multiple thinner layers so you can adjust to the local circumstances.
  • The Swiss train system is safe, clean and easy to use. In most cases, it's a much better choice than a road trip.
  • Nearly all public transport can be found in one single online timetable.
