Gotthard Railway Line
Climbing to and through the St. Gotthard tunnel in Swiss Alps, the train is passing famous Wassen village.
Wassen has a jewel that most Swiss and many tourists to Switzerland cannot ignore – its baroque Catholic church that is perhaps the most outstanding in the whole of the country. The church in Wassen is certainly one of the most well-known in Switzerland, if not the most well-known, because it can be seen three times from the train due to the helical tunnels that help the train up and down the Gotthard ramp, but the church of St Gallus helps you get your bearings.
But how many people actually stop in Wassen to look inside the little church? It’s only a fraction of the people who pass by every day, but it’s tempting to say that they don’t know what they are missing.
