Glacier Express Excellence Class The most sought-after seats in Switzerland

A panoramic trip through the Swiss Alps aboard the Glacier Express is now even more spectacular. The new Excellence Class sets standards that are as high as the mountain peaks along the legendary route.
From Zermatt and the Matterhorn, the panoramic Glacier Express leads over 291 bridges and through 91 tunnels over and through the Swiss Alps to St. Moritz in the Engadin lakeland.
 
Starting from March 2019, the new Excellence Class sets new standards and offers a feast for the senses.
 
 

Window seat guaranteed

 

A rail journey through the Swiss Alps has never been so luxurious. Passengers in the new Excellence Class enjoy the highest level of comfort, the best views and culinary highlights.

 
Take in the superb panoramic view from your guaranteed window seat, as you travel across the 291 bridges and through the 91 tunnels on the eight-hour journey between St. Moritz and Zermatt. 
 
 
 

 

Concierge on board

 
The pleasure of travelling Excellence Class starts as soon as you step onto the platform. Here you are greeted at the welcome desk in front of the Glacier Express by the concierge, who takes care of check-in and all your luggage.
 
Whether champagne and salmon soufflé or exciting anecdotes and information about the wonderful landscape passing by the panoramic window, an experienced crew ensures the well-being of guests throughout the entire journey.
 
Guests will also find comprehensive information about the route, the country and its people on their individual tablet – keeping them well entertained.
 
 

To the bar for an aperitif

 
Along the way, the crew will serve a refined, regional five-course meal including accompanying wines.
 
 
 
Amuse-bouche and champagne tastes twice as good looking out towards the Piz Bernina.
 

For a welcoming drink or an aperitif, we recommend the exclusive and well-stocked Glacier Bar, which offers the best view. Later in the day, an afternoon tea of delicious friandises is served.

The journey in Excellence Class is not only a feast for the senses but also one of the most exclusive tourist highlights in Switzerland.
