Everyone knows how wonderful European train trips are, but so few tourists take the best ones. Of course, most people will take the trains between different countries to explore all throughout Europe. However, so few people actually make an effort to get on the most beautiful rail trips. Instead of viewing train trips as an end in and of itself, a lot of tourists just take trains to get in between places. That’s such a mistake – especially in Switzerland. If you’re in Switzerland, take the Bernina Express to see the best part of Europe and Switzerland. Just kick back, relax, and stare out the window when you’re on the Bernina Express. You won’t be the same person afterward. It is one of the most beautiful train trips in the world.
