Travel by train on the Glacier Express which takes you through the heart of the Swiss Alps and is about an eight hour journey from one destination in Switzerland to the other. In the summer the train will travel through lush green mountains and during winter months the scenery from the train is beautiful snow covered hills and countryside.The interior of the Glacier Express was renovated in 2006 which has made train travel through Switzerland a lot more comfy and fashionable. Train cars have become air-cushioned, air conditioned, quieter and a lot pleasanter. Snacks and drinks are always readily available during your travel and lunch is served directly to you at your seat.The train ride takes you through 91 tunnels, over 291 bridges and climbs the 3022 meter high Oberalp Pass where the scenery is absolutely breathtaking. Book your train travel ahead of schedule when visiting Switzerland, Europe to be sure that you ride on the train of your choice.The Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn, Train, between Andermatt and Sedrun in the snow, Switzerland, Europe.
