Hello Eduard,

Thanks for your question.

There are direct Cisalpino trains from Milan to Zurich.

You would have to travel as follows:

- Milan to Zurich - Cisalpino train (Italian International train)

However if you prefer a stopover you would have to break your journey as follows:

- Milan to Bellinzona - Cisalpino train (Italian International train)

- Bellinzona to Locarno – Direct train

- Locarno to Centovalli – You would have to book locally

- Centovalli to Domodossola - You would have to book locally

- Domodossola to Brig – Eurocites train

- Brig to Lotschberg - You would have to book locally

- Lotschberg to Berlin – Bus. You would have to book locally

- Berlin to BernICE train

- Bern to Zurich – Eurocites train

Request you to check the schedule and book tickets directly on our website http://www.raileurope.com.au/

You would need to feed in the Departure city and the Arrival city along with the travel date and preferred time & the number of passengers (Senior, adults, youth and children), and then click on “search tickets”. Once you do so, you would find the schedules along with the fares. You need to select the fare which is preferable to you and then Add it to Cart. Once added, you need to mention the names of the passengers to make the payment on the next page.

Hope this helps!!!
