The area of validity of the Swiss Travel Pass will not be adjusted for 2019 and will remain unchanged compared to 2018. The mountain railways Brunni, Rigi, Schilthorn and Stanserhorn remain 100% included in the Swiss Travel Pass.

The Federal Office of Transport (FOT) has revised the decision to adjust the area of validity taken by the public transport panels. According to the FOT, Brunni, Rigi, Schilthorn and Stanserhorn thus remain 100% included in the area of validity of the Swiss Travel Pass.

Visitors continue to receive a 50% discount on all other mountain railways (exception: Jungfraujoch 25%). According to our previous communication, the prices for the Swiss Travel Pass will be raised by an average of 5% in 2019.

As a result of this decision, STS AG needs to produce new versions of the already printed brochures Swiss Travel System Map 2019 and STS Area of Validity Map 2019. The new print material should be available and ready for ordering via sts.antalis.ch before the end of February 2019.

Electronic versions of the brochures for 2019 are available in our “Downloads section:

There are numerous Christmas markets of sparkling beauty along the Grand Train Tour of Switzerland. Many of these Christmas markets are located right in or next to a train station, making their visit a perfect companion for the Grand Train Tour of Switzerland in the wintertime.

It’s back – the most beautiful time of the year! The Grand Train Tour of Switzerland is particularly delightful during the winter months: snow-clad hills, frozen lakes and festively illuminated Christmas markets.

Thanks to direct train connections from the neighbouring countries to Swiss cities, passengers arrive right at the heart of the action in no time. In Zurich, for example: The Christmas magic enchants visitors the very moment they step off the train.

Guests can stroll around some 150 market stalls and marvel at a 15-metre-high Christmas tree adorned with no fewer than 7,000 Swarovski crystals in the great hall of Zurich main station.
