Up to the 2,033-meter-high Oberalp Pass, down into the Rhine Canyon, through 91 tunnels and over 291 bridges, from Zermatt at the foot of the Matterhorn, to the world-famous spa resort St. Moritz.
The daytime journey by Glacier Express is anything but boring. The panorama cars offer uninhibited views of Alpine passes and mountain lakes, steep cliffs and pristine forests. You will enjoy the sight of deep ravines formed by water that exhibit bizarre rock formations, and you will traverse gently sloping plains and characteristic mountain villages. The first Glacier Express started in Zermatt in 1930. Zermatt is one of the five worldwide best known tourist destinations of Switzerland.
Pleasures of the palateThe scenery will not be the only highlight of your trip, however; besides feasting your eyes, you can feast your palate, too. There is a wide range of freshly prepared specialities for you to choose from – all of them served either at your seat (Zermatt–St. Moritz) or in the vintage dining car (Zermatt–Davos), reservations for which are strongly recommended.
