Where else in the world is speed unimportant on a one-day train journey? On a relaxing trip aboard the world famous Glacier Express between St. Moritz and Zermatt it is the visual spectacle of the panoramic landscapes which takes the traveller’s breath away. All year round!
In summer ...
The natural beauties of Switzerland include majestic four-thousand meter peaks, glaciers, enchanting lakes, mountain pastures and, in summer, picturesque green mountain meadows. It is hardly surprising that golf has a long tradition in this alpine land ever since its introduction by English holidaymakers in 1893. Switzerland boasts about 100 golf courses. Golf with distant views! Many of the scenic golf courses are among the highest in Europe, including the Arosa course at 1,800 meters above sea level. Even golfers who normally prefer Mediterranean climes will get their money's worth in Swiss Ticino or on Lake Geneva.
... and in winter.
Skiers seeking excitement with a hint of glamour and exclusivity will find just what they are looking for in the 42 Swiss ski resorts. Fast downhill slopes are framed by unforgettable panoramic views. Thanks to their proximity to glaciers, many resorts can even offer all-year winter sports. The VIP factor of the world renowned ski resorts around Gstaad, Davos, St. Moritz and Verbier guarantee that you will see and be seen both on and off-piste. Swiss horse-racing also remains the focus of international interest during winter. Spectacular images of the "White Turf" are shown all over the world in February. This exciting three-day horse race on the frozen lake at St. Moritz attracts 30,000 spectators to St. Moritz every year. At the end of January, another event takes place on the frozen lake: the "St. Moritz Polo World Cup on Snow" draws the jet set and polo fans as if by magic. It is the most prestigious winter polo tournament on snow in the world.
For those who love an exclusive holiday experience, Switzerland offers year-round attractions − a journey aboard the Glacier Express is definitely among them.
