With a decent number of airports for a relatively small-sized country (Geneva, Zurich, Basel, Bern), and a number of airports not too far from the border in the countries that surround it (France, Germany, Italy, Austria), Switzerland has a number of options for those looking to fly there.

Whilst driving to Switzerland is another option, the beauty of flying and not using a car is that it means you can then make use of one of Switzerland's national treasures - its public transport system. And in particular its rail network.

The reputation of the Swiss rail system is second to none, and rightly so. With lots of great rail-pass offers, free tickets for children, and plenty of modern, clean trains all regularly serving every corner of the country, it makes travelling around this beautiful country an absolute pleasure.

On this page you'll find links to more detailed information on travelling around Switzerland by both rail and bus, as well as some basic information on driving there.
