The Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn is a railway in which a train travels to various destinations throughout Switzerland carrying passengers as well as their car. When people disembark the train at their point of travel, having their car with them makes getting around a lot simpler. There is also a train that is strictly for passengers who like to explore the Switzerland countryside by train and see what the Swiss Alps truly look like.Amongst the snow covered hills the train passes many towns and the scenery from the tracks above is spectacular. You can sit in your car or your seat depending on which train you are traveling on, until you reach your stop and take in all the sights of the high mountains passes of Switzerland.In the winter, roads throughout these passes can be extremely dangerous to drive and many people prefer to save gas, time and stress by taking the train. Others simply enjoy to have somebody else do all the driving and spend their vacation they way it should be spent. On your travels you are at four thousand meters and the snow can get extremely deep especially after a winter storm.Summer trips by train along the Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn are fabulous as you pass meadows adorned with various colors of flowers in full blossom and forests made up of stone pine and larch trees. If you use the car train or the train for passengers in either winter or summer, you will find the scenery amazing as you travel through the Swiss Alps of Switzerland.The Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn, Train, between Andermatt and Sedrun in the snow, Switzerland, Europe.
