SBB launches VR App

Swiss Federal Railways have launched the full version of the SBB VR app on 14 August 2018 to enable users to experience Swiss tourism using virtual reality (VR).

The VR app is intended as a platform for inspiration (videos, stories, etc.) relating to Swiss destinations and the Grand Train Tour of Switzerland.

Experience Switzerland from home

The app provides customers with inspiration for leisure trips to a variety of destinations in Switzerland, all in virtual reality. Among others, it shows the spectacular railway journeys of the Grand Train Tour of Switzerland in 360 degrees.

For the moment, the following routes are included:

  • St. Gallen – Schaffhausen
  • Luzern – Interlaken – Montreux
  • Gotthard Panorama Express: Lugano – Flüelen – Luzern

Also, new adventures in Arosa, Luzern, Mount Pilatus, Zurich, Lugano and Zermatt have been added and there are ongoing plans to develop the app further. Glasses are not needed to use the SBB VR app. However, in order to experience the full range of features available, using Cardboard or Samsung Gear glasses is recommended.

Where to download the SBB VR app

The app can be downloaded for free in the Apple App Store, the Google Play Store and the Oculus Store. It is available in German, French, Italian and English.
