Glacier Express Classic.

Glacier Express Classic.

The classic among the Alpine trains: the journey in the Glacier Express is one of those panorama trips by train that is completely inspiring for both Swiss residents and tourists.

Experience the classic among the Swiss panorama trips – the journey in the Glacier Express. With the slowest fast train in the world, you travel from Zermatt to sophisticated St. Moritz or the mountain resort of Davos in around 8 hours. This takes you across 291 bridges and through 91 tunnels, along unspoilt landscapes, deep ravines up to an altitude of 2033 metres to the high up Oberalp Pass. And you travel on an indescribable route from Valais to Engadine.
