"Glacier Express" Glacier Express Tip by Dyesebel

Glacier Express, Zermatt: 6 reviews and 11 photos

Zermatt - St. Moritz
A great experience riding almost 8hrs on a panoramic Glacier Express,world's "slowest express train".The scenery is just breathtaking!You get to see Switzerland's hidden gems,the lakes,snow covered alps,the Rhine gorge,Switzerland's Grand Canyon,or even pass by the smallest village here with just 3houses,a gasoline station and a chapel.And of course not to miss,the beautifully engineered viaducts.You can read the brochures or plug the headphones provided in different languages, if you want to know more about the places.You can take your lunch either in the service car or take your order from the service personnel and it will be served at your seat.A service button located on the front of your carriages you're into if you want to order additional drinks or snacks during your journey.Or bring your own food;),it's a lot cheaper;)
Souvenirs are also available.At the end of your trip,you can ask at the ticket desk (St. Moritz/Zermatt) for a personalized Glacier Express Diploma as a souvenir and it's free!It's truly unforgettable experience!For more pictures,click this Travelogue
