Did you know that the Glacier Express also runs in winter, offering a spectacular train ride through the Alps? There is one train a day from St. Moritz to Zermatt and back.

A ride on the GlacierExpress is something you shouldn’t miss. Sitting in a comfortable sightseeing carriage, you will cross 291 bridges and pass through 91 tunnels – an adventure for the whole family. In winter, the fairy tale journey takes you through snow-bound forests and glistening white gorges past overhanding snow and white mountainsides along the Oberalppass.

A feast for the eye and the palate

Have an exquisite dining experience on board the panoramic train through the Swiss Alps. Freshly prepared three-course meals featuring local delicacies are served at your seat.
