Which panoramic trains and routes are there in Switzerland?

The premium panoramic trains are unique in the Alpine regions and make it possible to travel through untouched natural landscapes while enjoying the spectacular views to the fullest – thanks to the windows that reach all the way to the ceiling. The Bernina Express links Northern Europe with southerly climes on its journey from Chur to Tirano, winding through the UNESCO World Heritage site of the Rhaetian Railway. The world’s slowest express train is the Glacier Express (Zermatt–St Moritz) – a showcase train that serves fresh cuisine on board. If you’re in need of a little break, the Gotthard Panorama Express is the ideal choice. The only panoramic route that combines travel by boat with a panoramic train journey (Lucerne–Bellinzona/Lugano). No less spectacular is a trip in the Lucerne–Interlaken Express or in the GoldenPass Panoramic (Zweisimmen–Montreux). Both trains feature extra-large windows and take you through Switzerland’s picture-postcard landscape.
