Switzerland possesses the densest public transport network in the world.

Some 29,000 kilometres of rail, road and waterway cover the country

like a finely woven network. Comfortable and punctual connections promise

a hassle-free onward journey from any airport or border station or

from neighbouring countries. Connections are always assured: even as

high up as 3,800 metres a.s.l., public transport services are coordinated

to perfection. The Swiss Travel System offers travellers from abroad the

possibility to discover excursion destinations, mountains, lakes and more

than 500 museums with one single ticket: the Swiss Travel Pass. Holders

of this ticket can explore Switzerland on 3, 4, 8 or 15 days.

The Glacier Express.

Window on the Swiss Alps.

From Zermatt and the Matterhorn, this panoramic

trip goes over 291 bridges and through 91 tunnels as

it crosses the Swiss Alps to St. Moritz. Winding its way

through remote valleys, past sheer rock faces, idyllic

mountain villages, over the Landwasser Viaduct

and through the Rhine Gorge, the Grand Canyon of

Switzerland, The Glacier Express scales the highest

point of its journey at the Oberalp Pass with ease at

The Excellence Class.

The most sought-after seats in Switzerland.

Since March 2019, the panoramic trip through the Swiss Alps is even

more spectacular. The new Excellence Class sets standards that are

as high as the mountain peaks along the legendary route. Passengers

enjoy the highest level of comfort, the best views and culinary

highlights. The journey comes with a guaranteed window seat and

panoramic view, and includes personal service, great comfort,

thanks to ultra-comfortable lounge chairs, and a bar in the carriage.

2,033 metres above sea level. A clear view of numerous

summits, deep gorges and UNESCO World Heritage

sites, the “Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch” and “Rhaetian

Railway in the Albula/Bernina Landscapes”, is guaranteed

thanks to its large panoramic windows. Meals are

freshly prepared in the on- board kitchen and served

to you at your seat.

Service and features

• Personal concierge for 20 guests

• Welcome desk & check-in in front of the Excellence Class carriage

• Luggage transport (from/to platform)

• infotainment (tablet and headphones available to all passengers

during the journey, allowing

• direct access to the new web-based infotainment system)

• Guaranteed window seat thanks to comfortable, adjustable lounge

seating

• Exclusive Glacier Bar for a relaxed atmosphere

Catering Service.

The journey from St. Moritz to Zermatt (or vice versa) takes a whole day

and on the Glacier Express will be a truly culinary experience! Catering

for your guests should be booked in advance. Lunch or dinner (on the

afternoon trains) is served directly at passengers’ seats. The on-board

kitchen believes in the importance of authentic Swiss produce,

whenever possible, from the regions through which the Glacier Express

travels.

The Gornergrat Bahn.

If you want to discover the dazzling beauty of the Alps,

you’ll soon realize that the trip to Gornergrat is an

essential excursion. Its sunny viewing platform, accessible

all year, makes the Gornergrat ridge a top destination

and not just because of its altitude. Surrounded

by 29 peaks rising above 4,000m and by Switzerland’s

greatest mountain, the Matterhorn, and the second

largest glacier in the Alps, it offers a spectacular mountain

panorama second to none. And the “Matterhorn

Railway” renders it so close you can almost touch it.

Key facts.

Best place to view the Matterhorn!

Switzerland)

The Gornergletscher is the second biggest glacier in the Alps

Various summer/winter activities

My Matterhorn Movie/Film plus photopoint

For more than 120 years the Gornergrat Bahn has

been making the ascent to the panoramic mountain a

truly unique and wonderful experience. From Zermatt,

one of the most popular holiday resorts in the Valais,

Europe’s highest open-air cogwheel railway departs

daily every 24 minutes, climbing to the Gornergrat

9,339 m away. The train crosses impressive bridges, galleries

and tunnels, idyllic forests and alpine meadows,

past rocky gorges and tarns, accompanied by majestic

Tell me more about

the history of the dogs.

The Great St. Bernard Hospice

(2,469 m/8,100 ft) was founded in

the 11 th century as a refuge for travellers

and pilgrims. The priests at

the hospice kept large mountain

dogs from the mid-17 th century

onwards to guard and protect those

staying at the hospice. The presence

of mountain dogs at the Great

St. Bernard Hospice is recorded in

iconographic documents dating back

to 1695 and in a hospice memo from

1707. The dogs were soon used to

accompany travellers and were

employed as search and rescue dogs

for those who had lost their way in

the snow and fog on the pass.

St. Bernard dogs (then called “Barry

dogs”) have saved the lives of a

great number of people throughout

the years. Their reputation grew

throughout Europe in the 19 th century

thanks to chronicles published

in many languages and reports

passed on by word of mouth by soldiers

who had crossed the pass with

Napoleon Bonaparte in 1800.

At an international dog conference

on June 2 nd , 1887, the Saint Bernard

was officially recognized as a

Swiss dog breed and compulsory

standards were set for the breed.

The Saint Bernard has been

regarded as Switzerland’s national

dog ever since.
