The Voralpen Express runs hourly through one of Switzerland’s most diverse regions. With plenty of elevation changes, the train connects Lucerne with St. Gallen – two cities of great importance that have gained popularity among tourists for many years. Apart from offering incredible views of the countryside and the natural gems along the way, the Voralpen Express traverses the highest railroad viaduct in Switzerland with 99m / 324ft high: the Sitter Viaduct.
As of 2019, the old Voralpen-Express carriages have been replaced by new Traverso trains that offer a quality and comfortable experience. There are first- and second-class options with high-quality dining areas and vending machines. You will also find a unique family wagon to keep the little ones entertained. This modern option is being chosen lately by many travelers as is a fast, easy and beautiful train ride between two different regions.
The Voralpen Express is more like an insider tip for advanced travelers. Instead of crossing the Alps or mountain valleys, the Voralpen Express shows you the charm of the foothills of the Alps!
