Lötschberg Mountain Line

From Bern via Brig to Domodossola

Map BLS Lötschberger

Sometimes the indirect route is the best way to reach your destination: The mountain line over the Lötschberg connects the Bernese Oberland with Valais. As it passes through the untouched natural surroundings, the BLS-RegioExpress Lötschberger offers fabulous views and worthwhile stopovers.

Since the opening of the Lötschberg Base Tunnel, you can save a lot of time on the north-south axis between Bern and Domodossola. But that means missing out on a number of things that have made the century-old Lötschberg mountain line so popular, like the Kander Viaduct, the horseshoe bends around the Felsenburg and the view into the Rhone Valley. The modern Lötschberger train with its panorama windows makes the trip along the historic route into a special experience. Nature and railway enthusiasts can leave the route through the 34.6 km base tunnel to those in a hurry and instead enjoy the glorious views of the Kander Valley and the trip across the breathtaking viaducts to the north and south ramps. However, the locations and valleys along the railway line with their attractive leisure facilities are also a constant invitation to a visit.

From Brig, Domodossola is within easy reach without changing trains. From there, the Vigezzina-Centovalli Railway takes guests to Locarno.
