From Zermatt and the Matterhorn, the panoramic trip leads over
291 bridges and through 91 tunnels over the Swiss Alps to St. Moritz. The Glacier Express winds its way through remote valleys, past sheer rock faces, idyllic mountain villages, over the Landwasser Viaduct and through the Rhine Gorge, the Grand Canyon of Switzerland. It scales the highest point of its journey at the Oberalp Pass with ease at 2033 metres above sea level.

Thanks to the large panoramic windows, a clear view of numerous summits, deep gorges and the UNESCO World Heritage sites “Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch” and “Rhaetian Railway in the Albula/Bernina Landscapes ” is guaranteed. The menus are prepared freshly in the on-board kitchen and served to you at your seat.
