Travelling through Switzerland by rail is set to become even more glamorous

There's something undeniably glamorous about travelling through Switzerland's breathtaking landscapes by rail and now the experience is set to get even more luxurious. A new addition to Switzerland's Glacier Express, the new Excellence Class will start operating from March 2, 2019.

Already one of the world's most exclusive rail experiences, the eight-hour journey crosses 291 bridges and through 91 tunnels between St. Moritz and Zermatt. Sure to make the adventure even more exciting, the new Excellence Class promises couples the highest level of comfort. 

Take in breathtaking views from your Excellence Class seat

With guaranteed window seats, more space, personal concierge service, full-day catering and a dedicated Glacier Bar, the option will be available on two new 20-seater coaches. 

Seat reservations must be made and added to corresponding First Class tickets or Swiss Travel Passes. To find out more about Glacier Express's new Excellence Class, visit the rail group's website here.
