Leisure railway

Rote Meile

The old Furka-Oberalp route in Naters was converted into a pedestrian and recreation zone in stages between 2009 and 2012. Today, countless walkers and strollers enjoy the 2.5 km new spine every day. The Red Mile is car-free and is wonderful for a leisurely stroll with the whole family.

Where did the name Red Mile come from?

The "fil rouge" owes its name to the red colour of the plastic floor and stretches from the old Furka-Oberalp drawbridge between Brig and Naters to the railway station in Bitsch.

Also an experience for cyclists and wheelchair users  

The Red Mile is a combined foot and cycle path, barrier-free and is additionally equipped with larger meeting spaces at two points.

The FO Coffee

The old railway station in Naters has been converted into the cosy FO Coffee. A large square in front of the coffee invites young and old to linger and offers ideal conditions for smaller events.
