Experience history on the Gotthard Panorama Express and make travel itself an experience – a personal journey by boat and train between Central Switzerland and Ticino.
The journey begins on the motorboat or steamboat in Lucerne. From here it goes past mystical bays, picturesque landscapes and early Swiss locations that are steeped in history, such as the Schiller Stone or the Rütli Meadow, where Switzerland was founded in 1291. In Flüelen, you change from the boat to the 1st class panorama train, with a warm reception from the tour guides. You then continue by train on the world-famous and historical Gotthard route towards southern Switzerland. There you will have three views of the Wassen Church, which has achieved fame worldwide due to the bold railway system with its many loop tunnels. On the journey through the stunning Reuss Valley in Uri and the Gotthard Tunnel, which opened in 1882, you are treated to exciting stories and visual presentations about the unique Gotthard region. Finally, you are met by the varied mediterranean countryside of Ticino, and the welcome sight of palm trees.
