Sustainable travel with the Tell-Pass

With the Tell-Pass you travel through 6 cantons, to large and small lakes, fantastic views and record-breaking railroads, and all this in a climate-friendly way. Sustainable travel stands for real nature experiences, local traditions, staying longer and experiencing more intensively - you will find all this in the Tell-Pass area. Many Tell-Pass route network partners are part of the sustainability program "Swisstainable" and are committed to more sustainability in the areas of nature and environment, economy and social issues.

Nature & Environment

The Tell-Pass network partners attach great importance to energy efficiency and the conscious use of resources. They invest in their infrastructure to use and recover energy more efficiently in various areas. With the Tell-Pass, we promote an environmentally friendly form of mobility that includes several modes of transportation and makes it easier for visitors to travel sustainably and hassle-free in Central Switzerland.

The partners of the Tell-Pass route network are aware that good scenic and architectural quality is of central importance for attractive tourism. Tourism projects are concentrated on less sensitive areas in order to support sustainable spatial development.

Business & Economy

The Tell-Pass route partners are committed to preserving the regional economy in the long term. The Tell-Pass promotes high-quality tourism and motivates guests to stay longer. Our members participate in a circular economy and promote local and regional value chains. Together we strive for a balanced guest structure and long-term success. The participating companies create and maintain new jobs in Central Switzerland.

Society & social affairs

The guests of Tell-Pass partners stimulate hotels, restaurants and the retail trade.  The tourist transport operators and mountain railroads create jobs in rural regions and provide added value. Tourism provides important jobs in the region and cultural exchange. Employees on the Tell-Pass network look forward to interacting with guests from all over the world.


The sustainability program Swisstainable unites businesses and organizations along the entire Swiss tourism sector. By participating, Tell-Pass route network partners commit to continuous sustainable business development, pursue measures in the field of sustainability and thus make a concrete contribution to sustainable Swiss tourism.
