Hi AsimM,

Welcome to our website! There are several options for scenic train ride. Please have a look at this list. The Golden Pass line (9 to 10 hours) makes sense. You can also do the Wilhelm Tell Express to Locarno, and proceed via the scenic small railway to Domodossola, and finally via Brig back to Zurich (11 hours, or less if you don't take the boat). The timetable shows all the options. Are these the kind of trips you're looking for?

Will you have a rail pass during your stay? If so, these trips are free or at least discounted. If not, you can buy regular tickets.
