    There is a train that drives over it, really impressive ...

    The originally single-track bridge was widened in the two-lane expansion of the Lötschbergbahn in the 1980s, recognizable by the narrower component without the beam supports for the arch construction of the old bridge.

    The Luogelkin Viaduct is definitely a highlight of the hike. You can see very nicely how they torment the heavy freight trains up the 28% steep ramp. Unfortunately, the express trains have disappeared since the tunnel existed.

    In spring, when it is still fresh on the north side of the Alps, take the train through the tunnel and the BLS Lötschberg south ramp under your feet.
    Leisurely hike towards Brig, which is best done in three stages.
    On the way there are many nicely prepared rest areas as well as a small "restaurant".
    There is a wonderful view down and up through the Valais everywhere. From time to time you hike along old bisses that carry fresh, cool mountain water.

    Great hikes. Again and again wonderful views, a lot of nature (forests, meadows, waterfalls) and technology (viaducts, tunnels)
