With the common concept Furka mountain line, the association, the share company and the foundation show their unity.


(The German text is authentic)



We - the group Furka-mountain line, consisting of association, stock company and foundation - want to be an exclusive tourist attraction in the center of the Swiss Alps at the Furka with the cultural property , the Furka-mountain line.

We want to make a sustained contribution to the economic development of the Gotthard regions, especially the Ursern Valley and the Goms.

We want to inspire people of different origins and age levels from the Furka mountain line, so that they  join us and help to ensure the preservation and operation of our nostalgia railway for future generations.




We are grateful to our pioneers, who succeeded in re-starting the Furka mountain line against all obstacles, saved the cultural assets and thus wrote history.
We are composed of an association, a stock corporation and a foundation and form a large network of people, who support the Furka mountain line with a majority of voluntary work, natural resources and financial resources. The co-operation of these people towards a common aim is the core competence of the Furka-mountain line group.
We ensure the preservation and operation of the cultural heritage of the Furka mountain line consisting of the  railway infrastructure and rolling stock. The operation with steam traction is primarily intended.

We offer to our guests a complete, emotional experience with a nostalgic rail tour, attractive cultural offers in a unique nature and an inspiring ambience. We are happy when our passengers come back, recommend us or even get involved with us.
