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

New Year's Eve trip on a special train on 31 December 2016

If you're planning something special for New Year's Eve 2016, we can recommend the New Year's Eve train ride on the Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn. In addition to a 4-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

This New Year's Eve experience is one of a kind in Switzerland: You will be treated to a cosy 4-course meal in the panorama car on the Brig-Oberwald-Brig-Zermatt route. 

From Zermatt, the Gornergrat Bahn will take you to Riffelberg where magical views await you. You will be invited to enjoy a dessert buffet, including mulled wine and bread sticks, on the terrace of the Riffelberg Buffet Bar (or in the self-service restaurant − depending on the weather). Just before midnight, you will have the opportunity to toast the New Year with a glass of Prosecco and enjoy the fireworks over Zermatt.

The Gornergrat Bahn will then take you back to Zermatt where you will pick up the panorama train to Brig.
