Glacier Express Train pin

Glacier Express Train pin

In 1996 and again another year I rode the Glacier Express, virtually around Switzerland. Actually one takes the train to Zermatt and then the Express west and so on. It’s a great train trip with all the views you expect in Switzerland.

There is so much natural beauty to see in Switzerland, but no Swiss trip would be complete without this famous train link. The Glacier Express Eurail Passholder Fare from Rail Europe offers the option to travel on the private railway not covered by your Eurail pass. Enjoy a panoramic trip from St. Moritz or Davos to Zermatt through the “Grand Canyon” of Switzerland at the heart of the Alps. Travel from the eastern to the western Swiss Alps, through charming Swiss towns and bucolic vistas. Not to mention your travels along 291 bridges, 91 tunnels, and the 6670 foot high Oberalp. Available as a discounted “add-on” with a regular ticket, you’ll board this private Swiss railway and travel on the journey of a lifetime. And unlike flying, you won’t be too high up or so far away that you feel distanced from it. How great is that? You’re in the postcard, instead of watching it.
