Overview

Pair Switzerland’s snowcapped mountains with Germany’s mosaic landscape of mountains, rivers, and forest and you have one memorable rail ride—with the added convenience of one rail pass.

With the Eurail Select Pass including Germany and Switzerland, make your first stop Berlin. Once both brooding and avant-garde, today’s Berlin is a cutting-edge metropolis. Amid its rich historical monuments, the energy exudes at flea markets, in art galleries, restaurants and clubs, many open 24/7.

Then it’s on to Munich where old Bavarian tradition merges with the vibrancy of modern life. Considered the world’s beer capital, hoist a brew (or two) with the locals. Rather experience a little refinement ? Munich is also home to high-fashion boutiques and five-star restaurants.

Next stop, Geneva, Switzerland, where this French-speaking Swiss city affords some of the world’s most exclusive boutiques. Enough chi-chi ? In Zurich, charm surrounds beautifully restored historic buildings and turn-of-the-century mansions
