Set in Train in 1892. And on the Way up ever since.
To this day the Brienz Rothorn Railway, set in motion in the late 19th century, has lost none of its original appeal. Its construction was considered a somewhat “crazy” pioneering effort back then, but it is no less of a challenge now to keep it running and shining and to preserve it for future generations. Our trains and the way we run them remain unique worldwide. But it wouldn’t be possible without a great deal of tender loving care and hard work.
Ultimately, if you want to reach this advanced age and achieve this important position in the cultural heritage, you have to keep at it. And this is exactly what we have been doing for decades now. We are convinced that since 1892, those in charge of the railway have always done it right. And therefore we now take this opportunity to thank all our fathers, grandfathers, great-grandfathers and great-great-grandfathers for their commitment. Without their efforts, our trains wouldn’t look as handsome as they do today.
To ensure now that things remain as they are, we want to take advantage of this momentous date and get the BRR in shape for the years to come. Our railway, in its first 125 years, has moved so many passengers, in every sense of the word, and provided them with so many unforgettable memories and great emotions, that we will spare no effort to guarantee that it continues to do so.
