Experience history with the Gotthard Panorama Express. In Lucerne you board a steamboat and glide across Lake Lucerne, past mystical coves and picturesque countryside. You travel past countless places from early Switzerland that are steeped in history. In Flüelen the panorama train 1st class is ready to depart and takes you on the historical Gotthard route. 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.
