Travel inspiration in Basel and Zurich
Basel, the cultural capital of Switzerland
You have 4 days only? You want to visit more than one country? Basel is the name that should be on your list of towns to set camp. Perfect to visit France and Germany, from this city which is known as the Swiss capital of art and culture. There are about 40 museums, classical patrician houses and medieval churches side by side with modern buildings designed by major international architects such as Herzog & de Meuron or Renzo Piano. Top off your city tour at the Kunstmuseum Basel, known for its oldest public art collection of the world. Basel is the third most populous city of Siwtzerland.
Zürich, the largest city of Switzerland
Zürich is a major financial centre and one of the most preferred Swiss destinations. In 2012, it was voted as the best city to live in Europe. It is an elegant metropolis on the lake bearing its name, with views over the snow-covered Alps, home to over 50 museums, 100 galleries, top hotels, shops and restaurants. Obviously it has to be Zürich! With its excellent public transport connections, this prime Swiss destination is ideal for excursions to the rest of the country. 5 days there, and you will get to know all about Zürich and neighbouring towns.
Reviews & ratings Basel - Zurich
"Excellent scenery"Kazunori k.
It was a nice journy from Milan to Zurich and train staff was very familiar. More cleanliness is needed, for example full trash boxes.
"71 year old couple"Geoffrey d. 11/11/2013
The 9.34am from Zurich on a Friday was crowded but comfortable. Travelling at up to 199MPH, and punctual, it enabled us to travel from Zurich to Manchester in one day. Pretty good. We had come from Budapest to Vienna and Vienna to Zurich via the Arlberg pass earlier in the week with a full day in both Vienna and Zurich. Good hotels near the main stations. A great journey home by rail! Only East Coast let us down!
"Zurich to Paris by train"Geoffrey d. 10/11/2013
The whole experience of booking and then travelling with TGV Lyria has been fantastic. I will definitely use it again. Thank you.
"Convenient way to travel"Nokukhanya m. 27/10/2013
I travelled alone (female) from Geneva to Zurich and felt safe all the way. The train was clean and comfortable. I enjoyed the scenery on the three hour long trip and once I got to Zurich main station I had to change trains to get to my hotel. The information desk at Zurich station were happy to direct me to the correct platform.

We enjoyed our ride from Paris to Zurich. The train was very punctual and comfortable.
"Eurail Travel in Switzerland"Robyn k. 20/10/2013
Train travel in Switzerland was fantastic, always on time and always clean. Felt very safe. We did travel from Basel to Paris by train and the toilets were very bad and the main Railway Station in Paris was really dirty but that may have just been a bad day. All the stations in Switzerland were very clan. Staff at Stations and on Trains exceptionally helpful and also all announcements were made in a number if languages so that helped since English was one of them. Can highly recommend travelling by Rail if you are holidaying in Switzerland.
"amazing"Robyn k. 20/10/2013
I travelled with my husband from Zurich to Paris on TGV. Our experience was excellent as it was perfectly timed and we need not ask anyone for the Platform or how to reach upto the Train, it was very clearly displayed on the neon sign board and believe me it took us just three minutes to get into the train after getting down from the Taxi at Zurich station. Inside the train it was very comfortable, Both telephone and I pad electric chargers were there. Our both Indian Mobile as well as Swiss mobile worked well throughout the journey. We could get Vegetarian food at the Pantry- freshly cooked and of course mildly spicy.

"Basel train to Milano "Jose Randy c. 17/10/2013
comfortable ride...i like the cafe inside the train...fairly priced and decent meal...also i appreciate the announcement for every stop.
"Euro rail experience"Jose Randy c. 15/10/2013
We were a group of four travelling from Venice to Basel in Switzerland. The train ride was exceptional. I would do this again not only for the beautiful landscapes but the service on these trains. You can see the countries by travelling on the train alone. Those beautiful countrysides in Switzerland was indeed a highlight for me. Definitely five star rating.
"Good, convenient"Jose Randy c. 14/10/2013
The train brought me directly to train station at Basel without problem. The train is quite comfortable.
"Train to Zurich"Sandra m. 09/10/2013
The journey itself was quick and comfortable. Just one train (no changes needed)! Booking online was really simple and convienent. The only trouble I had was using the automatic machine to get my ticket at the train station. I almost missed my train (despite being 20 min early) because I had to wait in a long line up to speak to an agent to print my ticket (and they were not very empathetic).
"Great Experience"Robyn f. 26/09/2013
We recently travelled 1st class on the TGV Lyria from Paris to Zuerich. It was our first trip on a high speed train
