General information. Passenger information at the station


Good to know: Carefree travelling. The following basic information will help with understanding how public transport in Switzerland works in order to take the right decisions during the planning process for a journey. Public transport network The Swiss public transport network includes over 29,000 kilometres (18,000 miles) of rail, road and waterway. Hence it is the densest network in the world. Harmonised timetable For international arrival or onward journey, trains and buses are available at border stations and airports. Connections are guaranteed in all places. Where no train service is available, the journey continues by bus, boat or even mountain railway. Hence, interchange is simple and easy to handle all throughout Switzerland. Regular-interval timetable Trains always leave at the same minute after each full hour. Main inter-city connections run at half-hour intervals. At major traffic hubs, trains arrive every full and half hour. Bus and boat connections are perfectly coordinated with these regular-interval time­ tables. The complete timetable is available at sbb.ch. Train categories ■  InterCity (IC) trains connect larger cities without intermediate stops ■  InterRegio (IR) and RegioExpress (RE) trains connect the mediumsized centres in Switzerland. Regional trains serve all intermediate stations and also provide access to the smaller branches of the network ■  Major urban centres have their own suburban railway (“S-Bahn”) network. These trains specially marked with an “S” optimally serve the urban and suburban areas with a high-frequency timetable 1st class – comfortable travelling Those who appreciate a bit of luxury travel 1st class. 1st class coaches provide additional amenities such as wider seats, more legroom and electrical power outlets. Furthermore, 1st class passengers benefit from quiet and business zones. Swiss boats also offer the choice between 1st and 2nd class. The 1st class is usually located on the upper deck, which offers a magnificent view of the scenery.

Seat reservation ■  In Switzerland, the majority of trains do not require seat reservation. Trains offering seat reservation are indicated with an “R” in the timetable at sbb.ch ■  For panoramic trains with mandatory seat reservation, reservations should be made at the earliest convenience ■  Groups: Reservations for groups of 10 or more persons can be made free of charge at plabe.gruppen@sbb.ch. Information signs and loudspeaker announcements on the train notify travellers of seat reservations Surcharge No surcharge applies on national, InterCity or InterRegio trains within Switzerland. Panoramic trains such as Glacier Express and Bernina Express as well as some PostBus lines (Palm Express) are usually subject to surcharge and/or require seat reservation. Rail traffic information Information about the current traffic situation and possible disruptions on the railway network is available around the clock via sbb.ch/en/166. Security on public transport Public transportation in Switzerland is generally very safe. Security personnel routinely tours public transportation to guarantee the safety of the passengers and show presence. Criminal offences happen very rarely on public transport. By far the most common offence is travelling without a valid ticket. However, travellers are advised to follow the usual precautions against petty offences (comp. p 84).

Route highlights.

Landwasser Viaduct. The 65-metre (213 feet) high Landwasser Viaduct, coming into view shortly before the village Filisur, is the most spectacular bridge construction on the Albula Line between Filisur and St. Moritz. The viaduct is made from natural stone and has a length of 142 metres (466 feet). It spans the pristine Landwasser Valley in a bold curve – and dives right into a tunnel.

UNESCO World Heritage RhB. Since July 2008, the Rhaetian Railway in the Albula/Bernina area has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The railway route between Thusis (Grisons/CH) and Tirano (Valtellina/IT) is an excellent example of the technically innovative development of a mountainous region. As Europe’s highest Alpine traversal, it is also one of the most spectacular railway lines in the world.

Bernina Glaciers. Three impressive glaciers are among the highlights of the journey. In the Montebello curve, a view of the Morteratsch Glacier opens up. The open crossing of the Bernina Pass at 2,253 metres (7,392 feet) a.s.l. with a view of the Cambrena Glacier is another memorable experience. Alp Grüm may well be the only hotel/restaurant solely accessible by train or on foot. During a photo stop, visitors enjoy the wonderful view of the Palü Glacier and the Bernina Massif.

Lago di Poschiavo. This lake has been dammed up by a pre-historic rockslide. Hence, there is no man-made dam in the valley but just a water reservoir at the south end, which helps to control the water level. Le Prese and Miralago, two small villages and popular holiday spots, sit right at the Lago di Poschiavo. At Valposchiavo, the Bernina Express train tracks hug the lakeshore.

Circular Viaduct Brusio. The Circular Viaduct is the most distinctive landmark along the Bernina Line. Below Brusio, the Bernina Express negotiates a full altitudinal belt in one double loop of roughly 100 metres (328 feet) diameter each – all without a single tunnel. The open route plan over the viaduct opens the view onto this masterpiece of railway technology as well as a breathtaking panorama.

A breath of fresh air on the Bernina Express. On the section between Davos Platz and Tirano, passengers on the Bernina Express may choose to enjoy open coaches. The windowless open-air coaches intensify the experience of nature. Great pictures of the stunning landscape – without any window reflections – are guaranteed.

Highlights around the Gotthard Panorama Express. The ride on the Gotthard Panorama Express can be combined with a variety of other offers.

Lucerne. Whether a visit to the Museum of Transportation, a stroll over the famous Chapel Bridge, a view of the lion monument or an excursion to the Stanserhorn or the Pilatus: Lucerne offers various opportunities to explore – with something for every taste. luzern.com

Rigi. With the new start and end point of the panoramic train at Arth-Goldau, travellers meet a wealth of new options. For example, the journey from Lugano on the Gotthard Panorama Express to Arth-Goldau can be combined seamlessly with a ride on the cog railway up to Rigi – “Queen of the mountains”. rigi.ch

Lugano. The old town literally radiates Mediterranean atmosphere, hiking trails abound in diversity with pristine valleys and endless views from the excursion mountains Monte Brè and Monte San Salvatore – all of it is highly recommended. Travellers staying overnight in Ticino will receive the Ticino ticket free of charge as a special treat on top. ticino.ch/ticket

Bernina Express. The combination with the Bernina Express yields the “Gotthard-Bernina multi-day trip”. Three travel days take guests from their starting point via Lucerne to Lugano, on to Tirano (Italy), across the 2,000-metre-high (6,560-feet-high) Bernina Pass to Chur and back. sbb.ch/gotthard-bernina

Vigezzina-Centovalli. From Locarno, the railway leads through the Centovalli, the “hundred valleys”, and the Vigezzo Valley to Domodossola in Italy. On the way, passengers admire 83 bridges and ­viaducts. Afterwards, they get a chance to explore a network of no fewer than 160 kilometres of hiking trails. sbb.ch/centovalli

Transfer to Italy. Lugano offers numerous connections for the onward-journey to Italy. The northern Italian metropolis of Milan is only a train ride of 1 h 20 min away, for instance. For guests who use the Gotthard Panorama Express to travel across Switzerland, the southward journey turns into another highlight. sbb.ch

Route highlights.

Five lakes in just under two hours. Few other lines pass these many lakes: Shortly after leaving Lucerne, Lake Lucerne and Lake Alpnach come into view on the left-hand side, followed by Lake Sarnen and the idyllic Lake Lungern. For the last half hour, the route leads along Lake Brienz, shimmering in ­beautiful turquoise. The journey ends at Interlaken, situated between Lake Brienz and ­ Lake Thun.

Bistro: the rolling à-la-carte restaurant Whether breakfast offers, regularly changing lunch menus or themed ­culinary specialities: The bistro team provides whatever the hungry ­traveller’s heart desires. Those who prefer to stay in their seats can use the “Bistro Order” app to order drinks and snacks directly to the seat.

“LiveGuide” app. Passengers who are hungry for knowledge can use the free “LiveGuide” app of Zentralbahn. It offers a wealth of interesting information about the region. Thanks to map view, guests can follow the train movement in real-time. Push notifications inform about the next highlight – right on time.

Foxtrail “Hermes” – out and about with Zentralbahn. Foxtrail is an entertaining recreational adventure for friends and families keen on exploring new things. The fox roams around and through the train, leaves its tracks in the beautiful landscapes and lets its trackers rediscover the countryside and the railway world. Those who want to stay hard on the heels – or paws – of the cunning beast have to use their brains, creativity and power of observation. The ingenious group adventure makes for a ­perfect day trip for all participants.

Lake Riffelsee hiking trip. After a short ten minutes’ walk from the station Rotenboden, visitors can already admire the world-famous Matterhorn reflection on Lake Riffelsee. Continuing on well-maintained, comfortable walking trails, hikers reach the Riffelberg in less than one hour, enjoying a wonderful view of the Matterhorn the entire time.

Gourmet ticket. The Gornergrat gourmet ticket combines a hiking excursion into nature with culinary highlights. An Apéro Riche is served at the 3100 Kulmhotel Gornergrat, then a 3-course gourmet menu at Riffelberg and finally dessert with special coffee on Riffelalp. The various mountain restaurants are accessible by railway, on foot or on skis in winter. Dates: 21 Dec 2019 – 29 Mar 2020 and 26 Jun – 15 Sep 2020

Mountain highlights. Snow Fun Park. At the Snow Fun Park, guests can get refreshed and try their hands at various winter sports. “Snowtubing” with pirouettes on an inflated hoop, speeding down the slope on a sledge, zip-lining over eternal ice on the Flying Fox or skiing and snowboarding –  all of this is possible in the Snow Fun Park. What’s more, it can be done spontaneously: Equipment is available for renting right there. The ultimate way to experience snow in summer!

Sphinx viewing platform. Pressing a button, shooting up, enjoying the mountain panorama: It takes the lift a mere 25 seconds to overcome 108 metres (354 feet) altitude and arrive at the viewing platform at 3,571 metres (11,716 feet) a.s.l. Once there, it’s just a matter of inhaling deeply and enjoying the view. Incidentally, Europe’s highest research ­station is also located at the terrace. It is of paramount importance to environmental scientists, astrophysicists and meteorologists.

Ice Palace. The more ephemeral – the more beautiful! This is especially true for the “Ice Palace” and its treasures. With ice pick and saw, mountain guides created the halls and corridors in the middle of the Jungfrau firn in the 1930s. Today, artists shape the ice – with a delicate touch. On an icy round tour through this frosty world, guests discover artworks in many niches. Eagles, penguins and bears look like they’ve just solidified into ice, that’s how real they appear. A heart-melting experience, even at minus temperatures.

Alpine Sensation. Anybody who steps into the 250-metre (820 feet) long corridor leading from the Sphinx hall to the Ice Palace experiences a shiver down the spine. And that’s not only due to the freezing temperatures but also to the memory of the sacrifices that mountain workers made in order to open the Jungfraujoch to railway technology. 30 memorial plaques bear witness of it. The background music causes goose bumps as well: Together with pictures of touristic visionaries, it lets the beginnings of the Jungfrau Railways come to life.

Jungfrau-Panorama. There are times that one “cannot see the mountain for all the clouds” on Jungfraujoch. That has nothing to do with bad weather, however – on the contrary. Clouds are ­fascinating. Who hasn’t dreamed of bathing in that fleecy-soft miracle? The Jungfrau Panorama film makes it possible. It offers a 360° panoramic experience of the mountain world, the way it could never be had otherwise – 365 days a year. The camera takes ­visitors for a dive into the clouds, let them sink into crevasses and plunge into masses of snow. Independent of what the weather is doing outside.

Mountain highlights. Hiking variety. A broad hiking network of some 120 kilometres (75 miles) is available for guests on Rigi, offering open spaces away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. From a comfortable, barrier-free walk to easy hiking tours to mountaineering. Those who like to challenge the mind in addition to the feet should visit one of the popular theme trails.

Relaxation at the spa. Sore hiking muscles can regenerate wonderfully in the mineral bath & spa on Rigi Kaltbad: during a relaxing bath in the spacious indoor-and-outdoor pool, in the spa area with sauna and resting zone or during a massage.

Culinary highlights. Bathing and hiking quicken the appetite. Fortunately, the next “Beiz”, as the locals affectionately dub restaurants, is never far away. Offers range from Rigi Alpine cheese fondue at the Alp Chäserenholz to the terroir food concept of Hotel Edelweiss, where only local ­products are processed. Numerous restaurants with comfortable terraces invite visitors to linger and enjoy.

Winter inspiration. Winter hiking. Not only in summer but also during wintertime the possibilities on Rigi are virtually endless: 35 kilometres (22 miles) of perfectly groomed hiking trails, from easy altitude walks to ­two-hour panoramic hikes. Enjoying the pristine snowscapes on three signposted snowshoe trails between 1.1 and 3.5 kilometres (0.7 to 2.2 miles) in length makes for a very ­special experience.

Sledge fun. The five sledging runs offer racy adventures: From Rigi Kulm, from Staffelhöhe and from Rigi Burggeist, sledgers of every age will have plenty of fun in the snowy landscape of Rigi.

360°-restaurant “Piz Gloria”. Perfect – before or after the mountain exploration: Within 45 minutes, the revolving 360°-restaurant “Piz Gloria” completes one full rotation while the breathtaking panorama – a genuine natural spectacle with more than 200 mountain summits – silently glides past. The restaurant serves its guests a wide range of dishes: the popular James Bond Brunch and the delicious 007 Burger among other culinary delights.

Bond World. The interactive exhibition “Bond World” immerses visitors in seven key scenes from the James Bond movie “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service”. The tour allows guests to experience the film up close. They get detailed information about the making-of, see the original screenplay and may even test their own James Bond skills: from the expert hat-toss in Miss Moneypenny’s office, via a helicopter simulator, to an exciting bobsleigh chase.

Skyline Walk and Thrill Walk. From the station at Birg, visitors get a unique glimpse of the mountain world of the Schilthorn region. The panoramic platform “Skyline Walk” leads over a sheer precipice and affords a view of the grandiose panorama as well as a glance into the bottomless deep. An even loftier experience – and a veritable adrenaline rush – awaits visitors on the “Thrill Walk”. The adventure starts at the platform and leads along a 200-metre (656-feet) cliff walk, which passes below the cableway station and then turns back towards Birg – truly unforgettable.

Mountain village Mürren. On a sun terrace high above the Lauterbrunnen Valley sits the village Mürren. Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau, the “big three”, seem to be within one’s reach. The picturesque, car-free mountain village attracts visitors with characteristic wooden Chalets and a wonderfully rustic atmosphere.
