Guided railway walk along the Lötschberg southern approach for groups

Tracing the BLS mountain line – enjoy a beautiful and varied walk along the southern approach to the Lötschberg Tunnel from Hohtenn to Ausserberg, guided by an expert.

On a selected section, the “Lötschberg Southern Approach” walking trail impressively demonstrates the variety of the BLS mountain line and the special challenges faced when building a railway through the mountains. With the help of your expert guide, the well-established walking trail allows you to get to know BLS in an intimate and vivid way.

You’ll learn fascinating facts about

  • the construction of the route from 1906 to 1913,
