Rail Europe Launches Berner Oberland Regional Pass in Switzerland

Rail Europe has added the “Swiss Mountain Peaks” to its list of offerings with the launch of Berner Oberland Regional Pass on its B2B channel. This includes some of Switzerland’s cable cars, trains and attractions—namely The Gornergrat, The Harderbahn, Pilatus, Titlis Rotair, CabriO Stanserhorn, Monte Generoso, Schynige Platte, Jungfraujoch and Rocher-de-Naye.

Switzerland remains a top destination for travelers coming from all over the world, both in winter and summer. The "Swiss Mountain Peaks" are an ideal addition to a Swiss discovery and the Swiss Travel Pass or Eurail Pass offered by Rail Europe. Here are more details on the Swiss Mountain Peaks.

  • The Gornergrat: The Gornergrat Railway is Switzerland’s first electric rack railway, and goes all the way to the top of the mountain and glacier above Zermatt.
  • The Harderbahn: This panorama funicular negotiates the 2,411 feet of altitude to the Harder Kulm, located at 4,337 feet in just 10 minutes, taking travelers from Interlaken up to its local mountain.
  • Pilatus: The steepest cog railway in the world draws visitors to the 6,995-foot-high mountain overlooking Luzern.
  • Titlis Rotair: As it slowly rotates, the cableway takes travelers to the snow-covered summit of Titlis, 9,908 feet above sea level.
  • CabriO Stanserhorn: Since 1893, the open wood coaches have been traveling sedately up towards Stanserhorn from Stans. Starting at the intermediate station, the aerial cableway with its open roof deck is one of the main attractions.
  • Monte Generoso: For 130 years, the only cog railway in Ticino has been making its 40-minute journey up to Monte Generoso at an altitude of 5,590 feet. In summer, the oldest, regularly operating steam locomotive in Switzerland runs up to the summit.
  • Schynige Platte: The 126-year-old cog railway takes travelers from Wilderswil to the Schynige Platte, connecting particularly picturesque vantage points.
  • Jungfraujoch: Located in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Jungfrau-Aletsch, and saddled between the Mönch and Jungfrau Mountains, Jungfraujoch – Top of Europe (11,332 feet) is the highest railway station in Europe.
  • Rochers-de-Naye: The ride goes from the shores of Lake Geneva before rising into the fresh mountain air. Climbing more than 5,249 feet in altitude, the railway passes fields, villages and forests. With increasing altitude, the narrow track along the slope offers ever-more spectacular views over Lake Geneva and the surrounding mountains.
