The most beautiful connection between north and south
From 13 December 2020, the Treno Gottardo of Schweizerische Südostbahn AG, in cooperation with SBB, will travel from Basel and Lucerne or Zurich on the Gotthard scenic route, initially to Bellinzona and from 5 April 2021 daily to Locarno, the sun-kissed lounge of Switzerland. The panoramic journey to Ticino at reduced speed promises breathtaking views of steep mountain walls, blue lakes and finally Mediterranean panoramas with palm trees and splendid palaces. The Treno Gottardo will therefore be the most beautiful link between north and south.
Travel by train with the utmost comfort
The Schweizerische Südostbahn AG only uses the low-floor "Traverso" trains for the panoramic section of the St. Gotthard, which have been in use on the section between the eastern Swiss metropolis of St. Gallen and the city of light, Lucerne, since mid-2019. In the modern bistro areas, available at two points on the train, passengers can choose from a wide range of hot and cold drinks and snacks.
The family area, set up with a great deal of attention to detail, offers enough space for strollers and, thanks to the large tables, the little ones can enjoy their toys comfortably. Those who like to read while travelling will find lots of stories and ideas about adventures, physical activity and cooking in the customer magazine "Essenz".
