Riffelalp (2)



Make your special day even more memorable by celebrating on a chartered train or saloon coach with SBB Charter. For a wedding reception like no other. From drinks reception to dinner or even the actual ceremony, we can cater to all your needs on your special day. You decide where the journey takes you and aboard which train or coach, while we set the course for a train ride of a lifetime. So, hop on, your party is ready to depart! Our varied fleet has something for everyone:

Drinks reception.

Travel back in time aboard one of our historical trains and celebrate your special day in truly unique style: why not invite your guests for a round trip with drinks aboard the legendary Red Arrow “Churchill”, complete with an unscheduled stop in the middle of a bridge to toast your future together? The vintage train was originally built for the 1939 national exhibition and was the mode of transport of choice for royalty and heads of state. Now, it can be all yours for one special event.

Gala dinner.

Train now arriving at platform 6 is the Red Arrow ‘Churchill’. This special event train is due to depart at 17:05. We wish you a pleasant round trip and many congratulations to the happy couple.” Whenever you hear this announcement at a station, it is referring to one of our organised events by train. While you relax and celebrate to the sound of music coming from the loudspeakers, our railway catering staff will serve you a dinner on the train from the on-board kitchen. The Red Arrow “Churchill” is a fantastic place to celebrate and you and your guests can even sit in the driver’s cab to watch the driver at work or catch a glimpse of the line.

Wedding ceremony and romantic highlight.

Say “I do” in the modern, elegant “Le Salon de Luxe” and depart, full steam ahead, towards a future of wedded bliss. Is there a better way to celebrate your wedding than aboard the “amor-express” steam train on a nostalgic trip through Eastern Switzerland? Together with up to 180 guests, you and your beloved can spend this special day in a truly unique way. Upon request, we can decorate the coaches with fresh flower arrangements and organise musical entertainment.
