Four Crystal Ride cabins

During the winter season, only groups of more than ten people were able to use the new Matterhorn glacier ride Crystal Ride cabins, but they will be open to all in summer 2019. These special cabins are studded with Swarovski crystals and also have a glass floor that changes from milkywhite to clear three minutes into the journey. This allows you to look 170 metres down through the glass floor and admire the imposing glacial landscape. A new sound system will enhance the spinetingling atmosphere.


VIP Gondola redesign

The VIP Gondola, where you can sip champagne on leather seats while floating gently above the ground, has undergone a redesign. After spending several years transporting guests from near and far between Zermatt and Trockener Steg, the time came for a new look. The details, however, will be kept under wraps until summer 2019.


Glacier Express: new food concept

The catering service of the Glacier Express, Panoramic Gourmet AG, is launching a new culinary concept in the spring of 2019. This consists of various regional delicacies such as: an Alpine platter (Älplerteller) with Salzis (dry cured sausage) and Graubünden mountain cheese, traditional Valais rarebit soaked in white wine, oven-baked Graubünden capuns (chard roulades) with a little cheese on top, or, one of the classics, mince with macaroni and apple sauce. The offer is rounded off with regional wines. The aim is for guests to experience the culinary diversity of the regions they travel through on their plates.
