Journey to the roof of the Alps and experience some of Switzerland’s most scenic and world-renowned rail journeys. The highlight of Planet Rail’s Glacier Express & Scenic Switzerland trip is what is probably the slowest express in the world, the narrow-gauge Glacier Express which climbs up the Rhône Valley, past picture-perfect villages, then snakes its way over the Oberalp Pass at 6,670ft – the perfect spot for a proposal.
Other romantic journeys available include the spectacular Jungfrau Railway which carries passengers to the highest railway station in Europe at 11,333ft, and the Bernina Express which travels over bridges and viaducts, past waterfalls and rushing mountain streams, spiralling into the Engadine Valley before climbing more than 7,000ft to the Bernina Pass. Also visit Italian-speaking town of Poschiavo, lakeside Montreux, the stunning Château de Chillon, the scenic Rhine Gorge and Cologne.
