BLS RegioExpress Lötschberger

From Berne to Brig

The BLS RegioExpress Lötschberger turns the scenic ride along the historic Lötschberg mountain route from Berne to Brig into an extraordinary experience. Railway and nature enthusiasts enjoy many lovely views into the Kandertal Valley and the breathtaking rides over the viaducts at the north and south ramps.

From Brig, travellers can continue onwards to Domodossola without switching trains. The Italian city borders Switzerland and exudes a unique charm. There’s a market on Saturdays that’s popular among visitors. Here, people can buy regional delicacies at one of the many stalls.

Domodossola is the starting point of the Vigezzina-Centovalli Railway, which travels from the Italian town to Locarno in the Ticino. So those seeking out even more panoramic sights can continue their journey through the valley of a hundred villages.
