Traveling worry free with the Swiss Travel Pass

Besides its stunning natural landscapes, different official languages, unique traditions and wonderful people, Switzerland also offers one of the most efficient rail systems in the whole world. Why not experience this by yourself?
I just visited Switzerland for the very first time in my life and can already say it won’t be the last time. As a person living in a country where the public transportation is ‘not a thing’, I was a bit nervous about the whole Swiss rail network. I knew that in Switzerland you can travel by train, bus, boat and even cable cars as part of the public transportation; too much at once! The thought of it was overwhelming, but it turned out to be the best part of my Swiss experience. And this, thanks to the Swiss Travel Pass.
This rail ticket allowed me to travel across the whole country (tiny treasure in Mid Europe) in 15 days. I got to know the famous Swiss Alps, mountain villages, charming cities and of course, the scenic train rides. The Swiss Travel Pass saved me woes and money… the perfect travel partner without a doubt.
If you decide to experience the beauty of Switzerland, the Swiss Travel Pass is a great feature I recommend acquiring. Available for 3, 4, 8 or 15 consecutive or non-consecutive days, this pass will entitle you to unlimited travels within Switzerland, free entrance to over 500 museums and extra discounts on mountain excursions. Some of them are even free!
Mount Rigi is known as the Queen of the Mountains. A boat ride combined with a steep cogwheel train from Vitznau brought me to this magnificent viewing point in Central Switzerland. A truly rewarding experience! The excursion is also highly recommended in combination with a hike and a cable car ride to Weggis! And the best part: it was completely free thanks to the Swiss Travel Pass.
I also enjoyed one of the nicest views of the Alps from the Glacier Paradise viewing platform in Zermatt. You’ll get a 50% discount with the Swiss Travel Pass! Switzerland is a small country, therefore well connected with its rail network system. This perk makes it the perfect place to travel at leisure; you will feel safe, relaxed and most important, you will have fun!
