About this book

Switzerland is one of those countries where everything works -- and this extends to its transport system whose trains, buses and boats purr in seamless harmony.This fully updated guide has the latest route information -- including the recent opening of the Lotschberg base tunnel -- and provides everything a traveller needs to negotiate both the famous landmarks and little-known secrets of this compact country. It describes every railway line, reveals what there is to see from each station, and details the connecting journeys by steamer, postbus, funicular, cablecar, bicycle and on foot.

'The most comprehensive guide to Switzerland's transport system and the best reading.' The Times 'The bible for travellers to Switzerland.' Swiss Transport News 'The most detailed and reliable on the shelf.' The Bookseller 'This book is one of the best travel guides I have seen.' Today's Railways 'Anthony Lambert's guide is an excellent planning tool, allowing the reader to plan an individual route taking in alpine scenery and attractions.' EDP Saturday Magazine 'This excellent publication starts with a general introduction to the country and its superb trasport system, following which there are sixteen easily navigated chapters on specific regions and cities. In the opinion of many, myself included, Bradt guides are always a cut above the majority and this book can be recommended unreservedly to anyone with an interest in getting the most out of the Swiss transportation system whilst exploring the country.'
