Lötschberger RegioExpress + Regio

The more beautiful way to the Valais

The more beautiful way to the Bernese

Oberland and the Valais

People who travel on trains which speed through the Lötschberg base tunnel may save a bit of time, but in doing so they miss out on a lot. The imposing Kander Viaduct, the turning loops around the Felsenburg (castle rock) or the impressive view down into the Rhône valley can only be experienced on the mountain route via Kandersteg and Goppenstein, which is more than 100 years old. That is why railway and nature lovers leave the Lötschberg base tunnel to those who are in a hurry and choose the more beautiful way to the Valais.
