Brand new Excellence Class on the Glacier Express setting new standards

Excellence Class

Train lovers will now have the opportunity to enjoy a super luxurious experience on board the brand new Excellence Class of Switzerland’s Glacier Express, the world’s slowest express train.

Already one of the most exclusive rail experiences in Switzerland and around the world where passengers travel across 291 bridges and through 91 tunnels on an eight-hour journey between St. Moritz and Zermatt, the Excellence Class was created in response to the many passengers’ requests for a top class luxury offering in terms of experience, service and quality.

The result of this project, which began in 2016, is two brand new 20-seater coaches boasting an incredibly lavish design concept and service that will now be a permanent addition to the Glacier Express.

Available for booking from December, the Glacier Express’ new Excellence Class promises passengers the highest level of comfort, guaranteed window seats, more space and a dedicated bar – the Glacier Bar.
