The Lötschberg Tunnel between Kandersteg in canton Bern and Goppenstein in canton Wallis opened in 1913. Travellers wishing to travel in either direction by car (or other motorized means of transport) drive onto open flat-bed train wagons, and are then whisked through 14km of semi- and complete darkness to the opposite end of the tunnel. The queues for the tunnel around the weekend are particularly long, as there is no possibility to pre-book a specific train.
