291 bridges, 91 tunnels, 7 valleys, 1 experience. The Glacier Express winds its way through the picturesque Swiss Alps, from the Piz Bernina to the Matterhorn. Starting in St.Moritz, travel along the world's most beautiful stretch of railway line to Chur, before passing between the sheer cliffs of the Rhine gorge, Switzerland's very own Grand Canyon. After crossing the 2,033m high Oberalp pass, the warm sun of Canton Valais awaits you at the end of the Furka tunnel. Whether admiring the views while enjoying the wonderful cuisine in the historic restaurant car, or simply gazing out of the huge windows of the panorama car, the real icing on the cake is the first glimpse of the famous Matterhorn, as the world's slowest express pulls into Zermatt.


Typically Swiss - public transport

Almost everywhere in Switzerland can be comfortably reached by train, bus or boat. And on the network of approx. 20,000 km, there is something worth seeing around almost every single corner. A simple hotel or airport transfer becomes a journey, and this journey, in turn, an experience. Climb aboard, switch off and enjoy! The simplest option is with a Swiss Travel System (STS) Swiss Pass for visitors from abroad. STS tickets also include such world-famous panoramic rail journeys as the Glacier and Bernina Express, the Golden Pass Line and the Swiss Chocolate Train.
