Looking to do something different on your next vacation? The Glacier Express takes you on an alpine rail journey through the soaring peaks of the Alps and charming villages along the way. It’s a journey you’ll never forget.

It’s The Best Way to View The Alps

The Glacier Express connects the mountain resorts of Zermatt and St. Mortiz. It passes through the central Swiss Alps, making it one of the best ways to soak in the stunning views of the snowy mountain range.

You’ll Feel Like You’re In Harry Potter

The route takes you across the Solis and Landwasser viaducts. You may recognize this shot from the Harry Potter movies but no, this is not the Hogwarts Express. It will certainly feel like it though.

Panoramic Views

The carriages on the Glacier Express boast panoramic views, so you can soak up the stunning scenery from all different angles.

First-Class Treatment

There are a range of options available for riders of the Glacier Express. All seats are comfortable and food and beverages are made available. This means you can enjoy the first-class views while receiving first-class treatment.

It’s All About The Journey

The Glacier Express is the slowest “express train” in the world, and if you are in a rush, you’d be better off flying across Switzerland. The whole idea of the Glacier Express is to enjoy the journey, soak up the scenery, and enjoy mealtimes while surrounded by panoramic views of the Alps.
