Lötschberg Base Tunnel
Visit this masterpiece of railway engineering
Catch a fascinating glimpse in the mountain: A minibus takes you from Frutigen into the tunnel system, where you can marvel at the Mitholz control centre. Experience the trains pass by – a special window in the tunnel wall ensures you won’t miss a thing. The test track which is to scale and the 320-metre wide intervention stairs at the north portal are also impressive.
