Intro

The Swiss have known and loved him from their infancy: the blue children’s book character Globi. Even on the road he is part of the party – on the Globi-Express of the Zentralbahn route from Lucerne to Engelberg.

Globi-Express travels the route from Lucerne to Engelberg and is pure fun for the whole family. A specially designed coach carries our youngest guests away to a bright Globi world with colourful walls, Globi books and much more.

Globi experiences all sorts of adventures on his journey through the four seasons. Globi pictures that show him during typical seasonal activities keep appearing between Lucerne and Engelberg. Young ones are eagerly trying to answer age-adjusted questions about the places they see in the pictures. Any child who manages at least four correct answers out of six can look forward to a nice present at Engelberg station.
