Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Schwyz railway station serves the municipality of Schwyz, the capital of the canton of Schwyz, Switzerland. Opened in 1882, it is owned and operated by the SBB-CFF-FFS, and forms part of the Gotthardbahn, which links northern Switzerland and Immensee with Chiasso and Italy, via the Gotthard Tunnel. The station is situated in the village of Seewen in the middle of the Schwyz valley, about 2 km northwest of the town centre, between the Grosser Mythen and the Urmiberg. Schwyz railway station was opened in 1882, as the Gotthardbahn began operations. When the Gotthardbahn was nationalised in 1909, the station came into the ownership of the SBB-CFF-FFS. In 1900, upon the construction of the Schwyz Bahnhof-Schwyz Post tram line, the station was connected to the Schwyz tramway network, which in 1914 was extended to Brunnen railway station and the Brunnen ferry terminal.show more
