Vienna has been rated one of the best cities in the world to live in with its rich array of culture, sights and history.
Steam fans also have a railway museum located just outside the city (suburban train (S-Bahn) line S1. Get off at Silberwald, (not Strasshof!) station.) which features many different types of steam trains from all ages of Austria’s transport history.
This company offers railway tours of Austria including the Vienna museum.
Some features are:
10 nights’ accommodation
Lunch on outward bound Eurostar to Brussels and dinner on return

The Swiss Alps are reknowned for their beauty, clear air and breathtaking views. The Glacier Express train trip taked you from Matterhorn in Zermatt through the Matter and Rhone Valleys up to Brig. Then a chance to ride through the 15Km Furka tunnel to Andermatt.
Now reaching the peak of the journey at 2000 meters you begin to descend to the final stop St Moritz.
Passing nearly 300 bridges and through the Winter snow or Summer green this is certainly a train trip you’ll remember. There is a special Swiss-Pass
ticket available which offers great value for money on all the Swiss bus train and trams found throughout the country, as well as free entry to 400 muesums and 50% discount on private mountain railways.
