Zermatt to Chur by Glacier Express

Glacier ExpressGlacier Express: The world's most famous panorama train. Known as the world's slowest express train
  • Glacier Express

    Enjoy the impressive mountain scenery between St. Moritz/Davos and Zermatt (or vice versa) on a 8-hour journey express train. In both summer and winter. The Glacier Express travels through the Oberalppass at an altitude of 2,033 metres.

    The Swiss National Park in the canton of Graubünden was established in 1909. Animals are not hunted, trees are not felled and meadows are not cut in the Park. It is practically the same landscape that people would have encountered five thousand years ago. The World Heritage Committee of Unesco has also conferred "UNESCO World Heritage" status on the "Rhaetian Railway in the Albula/Bernina Landscape" – only the third railway in the world to receive such a listing.

  • Scenic Restaurant Car

    Thanks to large windows extending to the top of the train, travelers are able to enjoy excellent panoramic views. Air-conditioning provides for comfortable, draft-free trips. (Windows are sealed).

    If you feel a little hungry along the way, we prepare delicious specialities in our own onboard kitchen and serve them at your seat. Experience an unforgettable journey with the Glacier Express! The price for meals is not included and will go around EUR 40. Rest assured, it is worth every penny!

    Seat reservations are required for the restaurant car. When you select meals options at booking time, the reservations will be included.

  • Landscapes

    Past picturesque landscapes, snow-covered Alpine peaks, roaring mountain streams, lush meadows, historic fortresses, craggy cliff faces, picturesque villages, refreshing mountain lakes, quaint hamlets and seductive vineyards. But enough of poetic words. A trip onboard the Glacier Express is simply indescribably beautiful.

    A trip onboard the Glacier Express is also a journey through unique flora and fauna. Admittedly though, the discovery of "Edelweiss" or Leontopdium alpinum and "Pinnate-leaved ragwort" or Senecio abrotanifolius from the panoramic viewing cars is just as elusive as discovering a marmot, ibex, red deer, golden eagle or bearded vulture. But it's good to know that the natural world here remains largely intact.
