Now until May 12th, 2012, the New York MTA shuttle train from Times Square to Grand Central Station has been transformed to have passengers experience the beautiful landscapes of Switzerland.
Four cars have been wrapped inside and out with four different motifs. Mountains, waterfalls, and typical Swiss scenery brighten up the Times Square Shuttle for the short ride and unfortunately, a short time. The four trains represent SWISS (Swiss International Air Lines Ltd.), St. Moritz, Jungfrau Railways and Interlaken region, and Swiss Travel System-Rail Europe.

On my recent hiking trip to Switzerland last August I found out how incredible the scenery, cuisine and hiking really is. If you would like to read about Vevey and the Unesco World Heritage site of the wine country, click this link to read my article.
Special airfares to make traveling to Switzerland easier this summer are available on the SWISS Website. Many hotels for $100 pp including breakfast can be found on the website for Switzerland tourism which also has comprehensive information on all the regions.
If you enjoy fresh air, outdoor adventure and wholesome cuisine, you will love Switzerland.
