Gotthard Base Tunnel opening

AlpTransit Gotthard AG

The world’s longest train tunnel is officially open! On 2 June 2016, creator AlpTransit Gotthard AG celebrated with an unforgettable event for employees and project participants under the slogan ‘Together at our destination’.


The guests travelled on special trains to Erstfeld where they were greeted with a cocktail reception in the workshop. Afterwards, the jubilant guests enjoyed the impressive train journey through ‘their’ tunnel.


Overwhelmed by this emotional ride, the 2,500 guests settled into an atmospheric event in a large marquee in Pollegio. There, they enjoyed fine Ticinese cuisine paired with wines from the region and delighted in entertainment hosted by the charming Melanie Winiger, with a surprise appearance by Federal Councillor Doris Leuthard.


With the official segment of the event over, the festivities continued in the nearby marquees – with Ticino trio Nostranello in the grotto, a pianist in the smoking lounge and the band Feensturm in the party tent. Special trains then transported the guests back home through the entirety of Switzerland.


Furrer Events supported AlpTransit Gotthard AG with conception as well as organisation, and was responsible for the smooth flow of the event from Erstfeld to Pollegio.
