Mega Europe train station. It is very clean and easy to navigate thanks to numerous signs for way finding. You don’t need to arrive that early for your train as you can walk right up with no ticket checks or Security like in Italy.

It is very easy to get lost in this huge station. We always have to come up to the ground floor to start again. Underground shops are very convenient for travellers. From cafe, convenience stores, liquor stores, to Asian grocery!! this station has it all.

You can purchase it at staffed train stations in Switzerland, so yes. However, it is quick and easy to purchase online and then you can use it upon entering Switzerland
