I bought this book month before going to Switzerland. I read a little and decide to buy Swiss Pass Ticket and travel by train. It was great idea. The boks has a lot information about little towns which are on train route, historical facts and interesting stories. You can just travel by train and read info about almost every town or city you passing by. I think all Switzerland railway routes are desribed. Public and private railways.
I spent beautiful holidays using this travel guide, planned everything and get a lot interesting information about Switzerland.
I recommend it to everyone who wants to know everything about Switzerland and its Railways.

We lived in Switzerland for two years and this was our bible - it covers every rail line and many postal and boat routes. It describes interesting sites all along the way so you can see that there is a Switzerland beyond Lucerne, the Bernese Oberland, Zurich, Gimmelwald and other standard tourist destinations. We found great out of the way museums, hikes etc from this book. I'm ordering the newest edition for my upcoming summer trip. We've worn our last edition out! This is a must if you travel by Swiss Pass and the fabulous Swiss train system.

This book is a great resource for those planning a rail journey of Switzerland. There are country maps, region maps, and city maps. Every inch of railroad is covered in this book. The bus and boat coverage is less thorough however. The author does tell you where you can catch some of the more important Post bus routes. The author has also included links to the tourism websites of many of the cites mentioned. Most Swiss tourism websites are full of excellent information. Many smaller, off the beaten track towns are listed as well. Some hotel information is also included.

I bought this book prior to a two-week trip in Switzerland with the fantastic Swiss Pass which covers all public transit in the country (trains, buses, boats, gondalas). The book has a write-up on every train line in the country -- type of track, towns and sites along the way, a few places to stay, views, etc. One thing that was helpful was the recommendation on which side of the train to sit on to get the best views. In the end, it was helpful at times, but I would have done fine without carrying it around for two weeks. The Swiss train system is amazingly clear and efficient!

This book is awful! I bought it for a trip to the Alps and hoped it would help navigate our way around by train. It is broken up into regions but has very few photos and the maps are small and very hard to read. The rail system info is confusing. There seems to be a lot of unnecessary information, I would not have bought this book if I knew what the layout was like!

Very comprehensive list of train possibilities from every location. Not as much boat information. Not really useful for trip tourists, but maybe if you were going over for 6 months or longer to work there. Doesn't really include information on why you'd want to go to certain locations (hiking/food/castle/etc).

This wasn't one of my favorite books when planning my trips to Switzerland. It's better if you have more than one source anyway. Of course, online research seems to be the best.
