Overview

Home to majestic snow-capped mountains, ancient glacial lakes, and the music of Mozart, Switzerland and Austria have innate physical beauty and culture to spare. And, since there’s so much to see and do, the Eurail Select including Austria and Switzerland may be the perfect solution to your travel needs—and schedule. Use it to experience both countries for just a few days or ten…on either consecutive or scattered days.

With the Pass, you’ll have unlimited access to both country’s rail networks. So you can visit one or many of Austria’s great cities : from Salzburg to Vienna. Innsbruck to Linz. And when in Switzerland, its quaint villages, world-class lakeside cities, and ski resorts are not to be missed. If your travel typically takes on gastronomic proportions, a chocolate indulgence is a must.

    "This is the first time my husband and I have travelled using Eurorail. We find the pass very convenient, easy and no hazzle for travel. The best part there was free wifi in the Austrian side but unfortunately there was none on the Swiss side.The food served on the train was good even though we ordered vegetarian.The seats were comfortable and being in first class made a lot of difference for our comfort. Would definitely use this service again in the future. "
