Trains to Switzerland

The Swiss national railway, SBB, boasts an impressive 5,000 km of high-speed track, making it the densest transport network in the world. High-speed TGV services connect Paris with Geneva, Zurich and Bern so travelling to Switzerland from London by train couldn't be easier. Sharing borders with four European neighbours, daily trains to Switzerland run from Berlin, Barcelona and Milan, meaning Switzerland is also well connected internationally.
