The Gotthard: a tunnel carving out history

The Gotthard Tunnel is a symbol of Swiss identity and development. It’s the meeting point of Switzerland’s different languages and cultures, as well as one of the main lines of communication between north and south Europe. The opening of the new base tunnel on June 1, 2016 will make the Gotthard – at 57 kilometres – the longest tunnel in the world. It’s a historic event in Swiss rail transport history.
