EXPO 2015 in Milano

Tomorrow is the big day! The city of Milano has been gearing towards this moment for decades. The world exhibition, “Expo Milano 2015”, is opening its doors tomorrow.

You too can take a trip to the world exhibition between 1 May and 31 October 2015. With SBB you travel direct to the exhibition location and back home again – conveniently and with no traffic jams – thanks to trains offering more than 2000 additional seats per day.

With Milano Rho Fiera only 200 metres from the exhibition site, the best way to travel to Expo Milano 2015 is by train. And you can also stretch your legs or get a bite to eat en route in the restaurant on board EuroCity trains or else from the SBB Minibar.

Under the motto “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life”, 144 countries devote themselves to topics such as technology, innovation, culture and tradition. They are focusing on the rights of all people to a healthy and adequate diet. Visit this exciting exhibition – whether alone, with the family, as a company or as a group – including an overnight stay or simply for the day.

SBB are putting on numerous special event trains for Expo Milano 2015. You can find the timetable for these trains here: from Zurich via Lugano to Milano and return.

Switzerland at the Expo
The pavilion for the Swiss project, “Confederatio Helvetica”, consists of a large, open area with four towers filled with apple rings, water, salt and coffee. Visitors are invited to travel up the towers in lifts and help themselves to the Swiss delicacies. As the towers gradually empty, the platforms they are built on start to sink. The gradual emptying of the towers is designed to encourage people to think about their own attitude to consumption.

Switzerland was the first country to announce it would take part in 2011 and the first to sign its participation agreement. It was also the first to officiallly unveil the design of its pavillion for Expo 2015.
