Glacier Express

From Zermatt to St. Moritz

The journey in what has been dubbed the World’s slowest express train takes travellers across the Alps within roughly eight hours, passing through 91 tunnels and over 291 bridges.

The Glacier Express offers a journey for the senses – from Engadine right to the Matterhorn. On its relaxing drive from dazzling St. Moritz to equally sophisticated Zermatt, the Glacier Express delights travellers with scenic attractions and technical state-of-the-art achievements.

With its overhight panoramic windows, the Glacier Express opens up unobstructed views of unique landscapes.
