The Glacier Express in Winter

From Chur to Lucerne by rail
This Holiday in a nutshell
  • unforgettable journey by rail
  • explore historic cities of Chur and Lucerne
  • range of winter activities at Kandersteg
  • trip to admire the spectacular views above Lucerne included

This, one of the most beautiful train journeys in the world, is at its most dramatic in the winter months. The rolling meadows, silent forests, deep lakes and traditional villages are all the more enchanting under a blanket of snow, framed by majestic mountains whose snowy peaks glisten in the sunlight.

This is a truly iconic rail journey. The highlight is the Oberalp Pass. That the trains make it over the pass is a miracle of engineering, and the scenery is truly inspirational.
Rebecca Bruce, Inntravel

Taking you up to 2,033 metres through scenery of incomparable grandeur, it combines stays in two of Switzerland’s finest historic cities with a stay at our most popular mountain hotel. As such, it is a very varied holiday, featuring a wonderful blend of history, culture and unforgettable views, plus the chance to try your hand at a range of winter activities in the picture-book village of Kandersteg.
