Tips

  • Arrive at least 30 minutes before departure as Zurich station can be quite crowded. Give yourself sufficient time to find the train and get settled once boarding.
  • Consider travelling in spring as it offers the perfect setting with lush green valleys and snowy mountains.
  • The Glacier Express does not run for a few weeks between October and December. Check with your tour operator for the exact dates.
  • You’ll be served drinks, snacks and an à la carte menu for meals.
  • Luggage can be stowed below or above the seats or on the rack at the end of the coach. Avoid placing your luggage on the adjoining seat, even if the coach is not full.
  • The entire journey takes approximately seven and a half hours and covers 257 km.
  • First class offers fewer seats per coach and more leg room.
  • Smoking is prohibited on the train.
