After a stay in Austrian Salzkammergut region, we moved on via Allgäu and its diesel trains, partly hauled by DB class 218, to Hotel Grischuna in Filisur, Graubünden, - well-known amongst railfans - and the Rhätische Bahn (RhB) metre gauge network, visiting Ruinaulta Rhine gorge, Bernina Pass into Italy and the Albula line with its famous Landwasser viaduct. The last weekend we crossed San Bernardino Pass into Ticino, then moved to our final stay in Göschenen on the Gotthard Pass. Friday afternoon was spent on the Gotthard northern ramp, for example Wassen and Flüelen, Saturday's highlight was Furka Pass with its steam rack railway (DFB) and Rhône glacier. On Sunday we returned home stopping at Zürich.
