Information concerning the winter operation

The vehicle transport trains between Andermatt and Sedrun run during the winter when the Oberalp Pass is closed to traffic.  This service ensures the connection between Wallis and Graubünden.

In roughly one hour the train brings vehicles over the 2,033m Oberalp Pass.  Sit back and enjoy the wintry landscape, deep in snow, or simply nod off for an hour.  The Matterhorn Gotthard Railway brings you safely from Andermatt to Sedrun or vice-versa. 

The vehicle train runs during the winter closure of the Oberalp Pass and the service ends when the road opens again in spring. 


A reservation is mandatory for using the vehicle transport trains. Reserve by phone or online (available when the pass will be closed).
