Buses times from Leuk to Leukerbad

I am planning a trip to Leukerbad in December and I am looking to find out what time the buses run from Leuk to Leukerbad and if there is service on Christmas eve and Christmas day.

Contact info for the bus company would be very helpful too.

thank you.

Yep, very interesting.

I had always assumed that the second "B" on the "LLB" buses stood for Bad (so: Leuk-LeukerBad), but I see from those old pictures that it was actually Bahn (Leuk-Leukerbad-Bahn) and they have kept the same initials up to the present.

Thank you so much for the interesting history and pictures of Leukerbad. We spent five days there this past September and I enjoyed trying to picture the train trip up to Leukerbad, as mentioned in your previous post. We enjoyed hiking and this trip made a visit to the Alpentherm Baths. An absolutely wonderful and relaxing five days.

Just organising my third trip to Leukerbad (love the place) for mid May and I noticed that it is possible to walk the old rail route down to Leuk including tunnels, alot is along the road I believe, but sounds like a good walk. We may do it as the higher parts like Torrent and Gemmi are likely to be less accessible for hiking due to the suspension of the cable cars for the low season period.

You can get the bus schedules on the SBB site - www.sbb.ch/en Just put in the time you get to Leuk, but even better yet if you put in the place you are leaving from to get to Leuk, and then put destination Leukerbad, you will get the train/bus connections. And trains and busses run on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. So if you need specific info for those days just put in the dates... the only problem is that the new schedules from 12 Dec onwards will not be on the site until late November this year. (Schedule change is on 12 December). But there won't be a huge difference on the 24th, 25th December. Public transport is needed and used on holidays as well as ordinary days!!
