Switzerland is a country of railways and has the busiest rail network in the world. For over a century, the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) have ensured a high level of mobility and have shaped public life in large parts of the country. Their stations and trains are striking and internationally renowned signs of public transport. Their high-quality design, which is part of careful branding, makes the national railway company an outstanding example of Swiss design history. For the first time, an exhibition will comprehensively present SBB’s achievements in the fields of architecture, industrial design, and visual communication. Original objects, photographs, posters, video installations, and a model railway invite visitors on a journey through time—from the company’s beginnings to tomorrow’s mobility.
