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