With its panorama windows, the Glacier Express offers unimpeded views of unique landscapes. Experience a train journey through Switzerland like never before and stay in our ultra-modern youth hostels.

Anyone who wants to stay a bit longer among Switzerland’s beautiful landscapes should try the Grand Train Tour of Switzerland – from Interlaken via MontreuxZermattSt. MoritzLugano through to Lucerne – with youth hostels at all of the stops.
