The Slowest Express in the World

Cuisine, dizzying heights and the Matterhorn: The Glacier Express allows you to make a journey of discovery full of experiences and pleasure, with many highlights. On the slowest express in the world, in eight hours from St. Moritz, Davos or Chur you can travel over the Oberalp Pass to reach Zermatt, where the Matterhorn heaves majestically into view.

On the panoramic journey over 291 bridges and through 91 tunnels, you can enjoy regional specialities which are freshly prepared on board.
