Our regional transport lines

Well connected in both town and country

BLS operates RegioExpress and Regio trains in the cantons of Berne, Lucerne, Neuchâtel, Solothurn and the Valais.

RegioExpress lines

RE Berne–Münsingen–Spiez–Brig (–Domodossola) + Zweisimmen Lötschberger

The nicer route to the Bernese Oberland and the Valais

While you certainly save time by speeding through the Lötschberg Base Tunnel, you also miss a lot. The spectacular Kander Viaduct, the horseshoe bends around the Felsenburg and the stunning views of the Rhone Valley can only be experienced by travelling on the Alpine line via Kandersteg and Goppenstein which dates back more than a century.

RE Luzern–Wolhusen–Bern + Willisau (–Huttwil-Langenthal)

By RegioExpress through the Emmental und Entlebuch regions

The BLS RegioExpress connects the cities of Berne and Lucerne every hour. Culture lovers can therefore easily combine a visit to the KKL Luzern or the Rosengart Collection with a trip around the brand new Zentrum Paul Klee or the Kunstmuseum Bern.

There is also a lot to see and to experience along the railway line, as your journey passes through the heart of the picturesque Emmental valley and the quaint Entlebuch region. In 2001, this was designated by UNESCO as Switzerland’s very first biosphere reserve.

GoldenPass Line: the best of the Swiss panoramic trains

Experience an extraordinary journey with panoramic views over beautiful landscapes. The constant drama includes mountain passes, famous 4,000-metre peaks and impressive lakes. On the Montreux–Zweisimmen section, you can opt to travel in the GoldenPass Panoramic or GoldenPass Classic services, with belle époque-style carriages. A particular highlight is a journey in one of the higher-up “Grande vue” VIP seats at the front of certain GoldenPass Panoramic trains.
