The most memorable, comfortable way to see the Alps

The Glacier Express is the ideal way to travel from the eastern to the western Swiss Alps by train. Your 7½ hour journey begins either in St. Moritz, Chur or Davos (summer only) and takes you to Zermatt (or vice versa). Along the way, venture across steep mountain passes and impressive viaducts. The Glacier Express travels through 91 tunnels and cross 291 bridges while you experience the alpine wonders of Switzerland.

The Glacier Express is famous for its panoramic views of snow-capped mountains, breathtaking rivers, peaceful alpine pastures, magical castles, and charming villages. It’s also famous for its unrivaled pampering of travelers throughout the train journey.

Are you traveling with a rail pass?

A rail pass entitles you to travel on European trains in a specific geographic area, for a specific number of days. If you are planning on taking three or more train trips, a rail pass is often more cost effective than individual train tickets.

Children under age 4 can travel for free on the lap of an adult traveler. If you want your child under age 4 to have their own seat, you need to purchase a ticket for them by selecting “Youth/Child 4-25” and indicating the child is 4 years old.
