Travelling with the Gotthard Panorama Express.
Experience history. The journey with the Gotthard Panorama Express runs from Lucerne to Flüelen by boat and then on by train in the 1st class panorama coach or in the 2nd class coach via the historical Gotthard panorama route to Ticino.
In Lucerne you board a steamboat and glide across Lake Lucerne, past mystical coves and picturesque countryside, while enjoying culinary delicacies. You travel past countless places from early Switzerland that are steeped in history. Above all, Rütli Meadow, which saw the founding of Switzerland in 1291, as well as the Schiller Stone and the Tell Chapel.
In Flüelen the panorama train is ready to depart and takes you on the historical Gotthard route. You have three views of the church of Wassen here, which has become world-famous due to the bold railway facilities with its many loop tunnels. The journey continues southwards between Göschenen and Airolo through the Gotthard Tunnel, which was opened in 1882. You can also look forward to seeing the varied Mediterranean Ticino countryside here. Welcome to the region of palm trees.
