My trip began in Brig and concluded in Chur. I'm sure the trip in the winter when the mountains are covered in snow is a spectacular trip. I was interested in seeing the terrain and the geography of the mountains without snow on it. Also...More

We travelled in October from Zermatt to St Moritz. It was a beautiful sunny day. The trip was certainly enjoyable, but maybe not quite as spectacular as we had expected, possibly due to the absence of any snow. This train is marketed as a scenic...More

Went on the Glacier Express from Andermatt to Chur. Beautiful scenery with even a little snow to be seen on the tops of mountains. Can imagine it looks fantastic in the winter.
