Hello All,I am going to travel to Switzerland in September last week end from Stuttgart, Germany with Swiss Travel Pass. My place of stay for 3 nights is Frutigen. I have planned to visitLuzern, Interlaken, Bern, Trummelbachfalle, Titlis Resort and at lastGornergrat, Zermatt.Because Swiss 4 day Travel Pass is valid till 5th day morning 5am, Ihave planned to travel from Zermatt to Schaffhaussen via night trains. I have to reach Schaffhaussen by 5am. Please help me with connections. I have reserved one day for Zermatt, and we are three people inclusive of a kid.Regards,theyaso

Hi theyaso,

There are no through night trains in Switzerland, perhaps apart from a few international trains. Usually the last train arrives between 11 PM and 2 AM, and the first one departs between 4 AM and 6 AM. You can find all connections in the timetable.

Is there any other way you can suggest, any bus? Trains towards Schaffhausen starts from Zurich starts @4:45am only :-(

Sorry, there's just no real night traveling in Switzerland. No buses either. All options are in the timetable. I think you can best book a hotel in Schaffhausen. You can have a look at www.hotelscombined.com /Place/Schaffhausen.ht m to find the cheaper ones.
