Oriental Club Coronavirus Update

Visiting Mürren?

The Swiss Travel Centre has issued the following statement:


Switzerland is open and safe to visit

While many countries are just beginning to lift their lock-down measures, Switzerland has been open for local tourism for some weeks with most scenic trains, hotels and attractions now operating near-normal services.

Here in the UK, we are hopeful that quarantine rules will be revised and that the Foreign & Commonwealth Office advice against all but essential journeys may soon change, allowing leisure travel from early July.

With this in mind, we would like to share the good news that Switzerland has been ranked#1 country for safe travel*and that getting there is relatively simple and secure. Swiss are offering passengers free ticket amendments up to 14 days before travel and many hotels, rail companies and resorts are also offering the option to amend or cancel tickets close to departure.

We have heard from many people that they are planning a special or memorable trip once lock-down is over, so in addition to our most popular tours we've createda new collection of Exclusive Experienceswhich we'd like to introduce here.

Why not take a look and get some inspiration?  Our experts are ready and waiting to offer advice and to help you to book once you’ve chosen your favourite.

In order to meet the requirements of the Disability Act, the old trains will be replaced with low modern ones by 2023.  The stations and workshop will be modernised with the large scale renovation of the train line.  The first train of the three trains will be in operation by summer next year.
