Hi

I am planning to visit Switzerland in Jan 2023 and have started the planning process now. However, i am seriously impacted by a "non cooperative" SBB timetable, which seems to indicate either an error or timetable not available for most of the places i input. Is the time table being revised ? and if so, when can i check schedules for travel in January 2023

Thanks

Arno

Hi Bvn11,

Schedules for after mid December become available around mid October. Until then you can enter an earlier date to get an idea about travel times: www.myswissalps.com/timetable. It won't be entirely different next year, but there can be a few changes here and there.

Thanks Arno. It is good to know that the correct timetable will be available by Oct

Railway timetables are co-ordinated across the whole of Europe. The timetable changes each year in mid-December, so the current timetable is in force between 12 December 2021 and 10 December 2022. Therefore the 2023 timetable year will start on 11 December 2022.

The new timetable is usually put onto the electronic timetable system late October - early November.

Every so often a European railway administration changes timetables radically on some lines at the December changeover, but I know of no plans for the Switzerland railway timetable to change to any great extent next year

One way to avoid being told by the computer that there is 'no train' and to get an overview of trains on a particular line is to look at the electronic version of the 'paper' Swiss official timetable :

If you advise what particular lines you are interested in there is a way to find out what is proposed for 2023

Thank you 1960man for giving me quite a detailed insight into the timetable changeover. I will be staying in Interlaken and at this point in time, would be a bit difficult to indicate the lines i am interested. I am exploring various options, therefore various routes, to cover those sights and destinations i have not yet seen ( This will be my 15th visit to Switzerland ). As Arno had suggested, i am punching a September period to check on the routing and duration and will reconfirm the same after the new timetable is released in November.

After extensively using your public transport over many years i have been coming to Switzerland, i am sure this must be the best in the whole world and even better than that is this forum and My Swiss alps team and experts. Your speed and quality of response is astounding and precise. Heartfelt thanks to Anna, Arno, you and many others for tirelessly clarifying many issues to travellers coming to your beautiful country. You are truly the epitome of the word Swiss
