The train, one of the most scenic routes of the Grand Train Tour of Switzerland, is a definite “must do” for all visitors to Switzerland.
Mr Martin Nydegger, CEO Switzerland Tourism said at the inauguration “The Indian market is fundamentally important for Switzerland Tourism. In 2017, activities to promote Switzerland in India have resulted in a strong increase of 23.4% in overnights. Our campaign with Ranveer Singh as our Brand Ambassador has powerfully contributed to this recent success: Switzerland has become increasingly famous as an adventurous and fun destination for younger Indian visitors.» Mr Maurus Lauber, CEO of Swiss Travel system said at the event “ Indians are extremely important for the Swiss Travel system and the number of Indian travellers using the Swiss Travel Pass has doubled since 2013.
