Would you like a guided tour?
Are you interested in the Furka Cogwheel Railway, its technical aspects, history and operations?
Many questions can arise when a group travels together aboard a steam train:
How fast does the train travel? What is the locomotive's towing capacity? When were the locomotives and carriages built and restored? How does a steam / cogwheel train function? How much coal and water is required? How steep is the route?
In addition to their already significant workload, our personnel makes use of every free moment to answer your questions and provide you with interesting trivia along the way. They move from carriage to carriage and try to attend to you as often as possible, but their priorities must naturally lie in safety-relevant and operational tasks. This means that they may not always be available to sate your curiosity when something catches your eye along the way.
An enhanced experience: Would you like to offer your group an exceptional experience? The DFB provides dedicated guides to accompany you on your journey. Our well-informed guides can answer most of your questions immediately based on their extensive knowledge of the railway and the region, as well as various information materials. Even technical questions can be answered in depth by our competent guides.
