Switzerland boasts 13,000 miles of train, bus, and boat routes, which provide more excursion possibilities than any other European country. For the convenience of visitors, the Swiss Travel System offers a range of travel passes and tickets. Here you can find a ticket that works best for your trip to Switzerland and order it directly online from Rail Europe:

SWISS PASS TICKET
Travelers may explore the entire country of Switzerland on passes good for 4, 8, 15, 22 days or one month. They are valid on the entire network of trains, buses, and boats. A Swiss Pass provides passage on Switzerland's scenic trains (reservations required) and also entitles its holders to discounts on mountaintop excursions.
