Who are we?
The Zentralbahn network covers the Lucerne-Engelberg and Lucerne-Interlaken routes. Commuters travelling to work and school, tourists visiting the region’s countless sights, and locals heading for various events and leisure time destinations rely on these trains.
Though quite a young company, the Zentralbahn can look back on a long and eventful time in railway history. For decades, the Brünig Railway and the Lucerne-Stans-Engelberg Railway (LSE) provided reliable rail services between Lucerne-Interlaken and Lucerne-Engelberg.
Zentralbahn since January 2005.
Effective 1 January 2005, the two railways merged to form the new Zentralbahn. With approximately 300 employees, the Zentralbahn, one of the largest narrow-gauge railways in Switzerland, provides high-quality rail services between Lucerne, Engelberg and Interlaken.
Principal employer in the region.
The Zentralbahn is the principal employer in the region’s public transport sector, offering employment in a variety of fields as well as training young professionals.
