Passes can be closed completely in the winter and this is where the vehicle train becomes a necessity for people.Not only are the winter driving conditions an issue but some of the roads are very narrow with extremely sharp curves along deep ravines and a lot of people enjoy the ease of the vehicle train.Taking the vehicle train through Switzerland can make your journey a fair bit more expensive but it spares you the stress of trying to drive over snow covered passes. The vehicle train saves you a tremendous amount of time in the winter and gives you an hour or two to relax and enjoy the amazing scenery of the mountain passes in Switzerland.While visiting Switzerland whether it is summer or winter, you might want to try out a vehicle train just to get a different perspective of the transportation available in this country. It is advisable to inquire about vehicle train tickets in advance and find out exactly where the train stops to ensure you coincide with the schedule of the vehicle train.Vehicle train, the Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn, between Oberwald and Realp, Furka Pass during snow, Switzerland, Europe.
