Location & how to get here

Nearer than you think

Whether you’re coming to us by train or by car, your journey into the Goms will be an adventure all of its own. The communities of the Goms are all located at an elevation between 1200 and 1400 metres above sea level. The region’s road network is highly developed and the entire Goms is extremely well served by public transport (the Matterhorn Gotthard Railway). Travelling through such wonderful Alpine scenery makes the journey itself part of the holiday.

Travelling by train

If you’re coming to us by train, you’ll travel through the Lötschberg tunnel, the Simplon tunnel or (if you’re coming from Sion) via Brig / Visp, where you join the Matterhorn Gotthard Railway. Every settlement in Goms/Obergoms has a train station. If you let us know your time of arrival, we‘ll be very happy to collect you from the train station at Gluringen.

Travelling by car

From Geneva, you’ll drive alongside beautiful Lake Geneva and the Rhone. From Milan, you take the road through the Simplon pass, which is open all year (or you can use the car transporter train, Autoverlad Iselle-Brig). From the German-speaking part of Switzerland or Germany itself, use the Kandersteg-Goppenstein car transporter train (departures every 30 minutes; 12-minute journey through the Lötschberg tunnel), then through Brig into the Goms region and on to Gluringen. From the Zurich area or Lucerne, or from Ticino, go through the Furka tunnel (car transporter train), which is open all year, into the Goms region and down into Gluringen.

In summer, you can get into the Goms on good roads through the Grimsel and Furka mountain passes, or via the Nufenen pass. This is a much-loved route with many wonderful viewpoints.
