When the weather is below 10 degrees Celsius the penguins come out for a little waddle around. 🐧

15. Train Travel in Switzerland can be expensive–
If you have children I definitely recommend purchasing the Junior Card for 30 CHF a year

Kids ages 6-16 can then travel with a parent on the Swiss trains for FREE.

If you don’t live in Switzerland you can purchase The Swiss Travel pass and then children can ride for FREE. You can check out all the details on SBB.
