1. Switzerland. A paradise for train travellers as this is one of the
most fi nely-intertwined and heavily-travelled railway networks
in the world. The combined length of the railway tracks of
this Alps country total 5000 kilometres! Their effi cient and
spectacular routes make the Swiss trains an excellent means
of transport for tourists to discover the country.
2. In this part of the series we'll go from the heart
of Switzerland straight across Europe's highest
mountains towards the south of the country. It's
going to be a journey on one of the most diffi cult
tracks in the world. The train will take the travellers
through hundreds of tunnels, passing deep ravines
and steep slopes. We shall not only see beautiful
scenery, but we'll get to know Swiss culture as well.
The Wilhelm Tell Express goes by land and sea.
