Window to the Swiss alps
The panoramic journey on the Glacier Express through the Swiss Alps is one to remember – with highlights from start to finish. St. Moritz is the playground of the rich and famous and Zermatt is home to the world's most photographed mountain, the Matterhorn.
The 8-hour journey on board the slowest express train in the world takes passengers over 291 bridges and through 91 tunnels. From cosmopolitan St. Moritz the train snakes its way through the Albula Valley. Or start your trip in Davos Platz and take the regional train across the Wiesen Viaduct to Filisur where the Glacier Express will be waiting for you. Your trip then continues in the Glacier Express through the Rhine Gorge, Switzerland’s very own Grand Canyon.
