Lake Constance Line Scenic Rail Journey

Enjoy the highlights of north-eastern Switzerland

Lake Contance Cruise
Heiden, near Lake Constance
Rhine Cruise
A delightful 2 hour journey across the top of Switzerland

Experience a scenic part of the country which is a well kept secret! From Zurich, the route takes you northwards past villages and meadows to Neuhausen. This is the home of the Rhine Falls, the largest waterfall in Europe and a spectacular sight. Shortly afterwards you will reach Schaffhausen, a historic merchant town on the Rhine. The rail route then follows the river out to Stein am Rhein, an atmospheric town with preserved medieval buildings. Eventually the river flows into Lake Constance, and the train gives views of this stunning lake as far as Romanshorn. Leaving the lake, you then head south to the fascinating city of St. Gallen, home to the magnificent Abbey and Cathedral - a renowned UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Lake Constance scenic route can be enjoyed as a day trip, with stops en route at points of interest. It can also be incorporated into a 2 centre holiday - perhaps combining Lucerne and St. Gallen, by linking up with the Pre-Alpine Express which is another scenic route through the picturesque Toggenburg region.
