Glacier Express

The Glacier Express is the classic among the panorama trains through Switzerland. The journey is an eight-hour experience in which one highlight follows the other and you too can board the "slowest express train in the world" and embark on a breathtaking journey between St. Moritz and Zermatt.


The Glacier Express offers an eventful voyage of discovery with numerous highlights. The journey from St. Moritz, Davos or Chur over the Oberalp pass to Zermatt leads through untouched mountain landscapes, over mighty mountain rivers and past rugged rock faces. Thanks to its roof-high panoramic windows, the Glacier Express offers a clear view of the impressive landscape. To make sure you don't miss a highlight, headphones will tell you everything you need to know about the route across the Alps.
