Hello All

Is it normal for the Gotthard Express to operate during the Easter Holiday period.

If this is the case, Easter or Good Friday falls on March 31st next year 2018 which could mean that this service kicks of earlier than normal. Because we are travelling early April next year these dates might just work for us.

What are your thoughts on this?

Regards Bob

Hello Bob,

Well, there's no "normal" schedule yet as the Gotthard Panorama Express operates for the very first time ever on April 14 ;-) There is no timetable yet for next year but I would expect it to be similar to this year. That means it would start operating during weekends from mid April and on all days from early July to late October. But there are regular trains on the same route all year round, so you will be able to do this trip in any case.
