Travel on the famous Glacier Express – one of Switzerland's best scenic train rides across the Alps connecting two of the most popular resorts – Zermatt and St. Moritz. The entire journey takes around 7.5 hours and crosses 291 bridges, passes through 91 tunnels and climbs over the 2033m high Oberalp Pass. There are of course faster ways to travel. But none as beautiful as the journey by Glacier Express, the panoramic train traveling right through the Swiss Alps. Here the journey is really the destination.
Discover the one-of-a-kind mountain landscape in the Swiss Alps – comfortable from your premier seating on board of the trains. In the panoramic coach of the Glacier- and Bernina Express you travel across impressive viaducts, through winding and helical tunnels, past raging mountain torrents, glaciers and glittering snow covered landscapes. 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.
Combine three of the most attractive regions in Switzerland in one exciting rail holiday on the GoldenPass Line from Central Switzerland via the Bernese Oberland to the Lake Geneva region. Two languages, three worlds, six lakes, one line: That’s the GoldenPass Line. In Montreux, palm trees and southern ambience still prevail along the „Swiss Riviera“. French peppers the air. The golden panorama train squeezes through vineyards and gardens on its ascent, one last glimpse back at Lake Geneva, a tunnel, then black fir trees, fast-flowing streams. Cosy chalets in the valley and on the slopes. Lake Thun soon comes into view en route to Interlaken. The train, which waits here, wishes to acquaint you with Lake Brienz and the Giessbach waterfalls near Brienz, before moving on.
Explore the beauty of the Swiss mountains with this ideal combination of Lucerne and Interlaken. Spend two nights in the charming town of Lucerne followed by two nights in Interlaken with trips to the summits of Mount Pilatus (2133m) and/or Mount Titlis (3238 m) and the Jungfraujoch (3454m).
The Bernina Express runs through the ancient landscape of Switzerland‘s beautiful Grisons (Graubünden) making short work of the 55 tunnels, 196 bridges and steep inclines along the way. Special observation cars will let you admire the route as well as the mighty glaciers, viaducts and palm trees from the comfort of your seat. The final stretch of the Bernina Express line has been classed as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2008.
