The Glacier Express first chugged its way across the Swiss Alps in 1930, connecting the mountain resorts of Zermatt and St. Moritz. Dubbed the “world’s slowest express train,” its route was engineered to awe, offering unrivalled views of Switzerland’s most pristine landscapes through panoramic, ceiling-high windows.
