New Year's Eve train ride on the Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn

New Year's Eve trip on a special train on 31. December 2017

If you're planning something special for New Year's Eve 2017, 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. 

Price CHF 259.00
