If you're planning something special for New Year's Eve 2020, we can recommend the New Year's Eve train ride on the Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn. In addition to a 5-course meal, an attractive supporting programme will be on offer as well as fantastic views from the panorama car.
Magical New Year's Eve programme
You are unlikely to experience a finer New Year's Eve anywhere else in Switzerland: during the scenic journey from Brig-Oberwald-Brig-Zermatt-Brig, you will enjoy a leisurely 5-course dinner.
Having arrived in Zermatt, all diners will receive a glass of champagne. Standing on Kirchplatz in Zermatt, you will have the best vantage point to marvel at a stunning fireworks display shortly before midnight above the Matterhorn. Before you embark on your homeward journey, the Matterhorn Gotthardbahn will serve you a hot mulled wine and "Stäckli" snacks. And on your return journey a festive dessert will also be served to you.
