This was one of the things I came to do in Switzerland. The point which swung the argument of the holiday in favour of this european nation, rather than others. We travelled from St. Moritz to Zermatt via the Glacier Express, and it was a bit underwhelming; but at the same time, good fun. The main draw of the journey is the Ice-landscapes, but most of it is in the plains, where you are treated to a lovely view of the switzerland countryside. This however, you'll experience all over the nation, so didn't really make up for the 1st class tickets. And just because of us being tourists, your can't choose your seats, and may end up in all aisle seats, like we did and kill the view.
The big glass windows are really good for the view, but painful for photography. The redeeming element of the trip was the excellent service of the staff, and the fun of seeing so many people standing doing the journey waiting for that perfect moment to snap the shutter!
