We have planned 6 nights trip to Switzerland, will be landing in Zurich and booked to stay in Appenzell for 2 nights, 2 nights in Gruyere and last 2 nights in Montreaux.

We are confused whether we should rent a car or travel by train.

Which out of these options would work out economical and convenient?. if we opt for train, then should we be taking a pass or point to point tickets?

The route will be as follows:

  • Zurich Airport to Appenzell,
  • Appenzell to Gruyere
  • Gruyere to Montreaux,
  • Montreaux to Geneva airport

Thank you

Thank you Arno,

This was really helpful and we have decided to skip the car option and try the beautiful scenic trains of Switzerland :-).

Thanks once again.
