Red Arrow “Churchill”

This legendary train was specially designed to mark the occasion of the Swiss National Exposition in 1939. It owes its nickname to the former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (1874-1965), who travelled across Switzerland on this train in 1946. The Red Arrow “Churchill” train can accommodate 110 guests and is fitted with 28 tables as well as the technical equipment needed. And an onboard kitchen ensures that the culinary wishes of even your most discerning guests are met.

“Salon suisse” Saloon Coach

Many people know that Switzerland’s Federal Council travels to state receptions in the “Salon suisse” saloon coach. However, you can also book the saloon coach for up to 34 people for your business travel. It is furnished with sophisticated Le Corbusier chairs and matching sofa as well as the latest technology to meet the needs of any executive, so you can enjoy an unparalleled travel experience.

Sitting Coaches

Apart from excellent comfort, sitting coaches offer perfect working conditions while travelling. In 1st class, the stage is set for a productive and scenic journey. Sitting coaches can be added to the train as extra coaches, combined with other coaches or deployed as a special train. Perfect for larger events with a capacity of up to 1,000 people.

Get to your meeting in style

Glamorous trains and boats serve as perfect venues for your next conference, but they are also the preferred way to reach your next meeting. Comfortable and punctual connections ensure a seamless travel experience – from any airport or border station or from neighbouring countries. Connections are always assured: Even at 3,800 metres a.s.l. Thus, the journey to your meeting is easy and comfortable. Not to mention the stunning views along the way.

Your time is valuable

Busy professionals spend a large amount of time on planes, cars and trains to get from A to B. Most would agree that this time could be spent better. In Switzerland, public transport is designed to make travelling an enjoyable and productive experience. Did you know that most intercity trains feature a business zone? These are equipped with comfortable seats and individual outlets, so guests can easily power up their laptop to finish up an important presentation or hop on a work call.

Blend business with leisure

Your meeting might come to an end at some point, but the experience continues. Don’t miss out and encourage your customers to extend their stay in Switzerland and enjoy it to the fullest along the Grand Train Tour of Switzerland. Slow Travel is a welcome alternative in a fast-paced world. Because sometimes, one must slow down before accelerating to tackle new and exciting business opportunities. A panoramic train journey does just that. Take the Luzern–Interlaken Express for example. It joins picturesque Lucerne with Interlaken, renowned for its breathtaking nature and a popular convention location. The options along the Grand Train Tour of Switzerland are virtually limitless.
