There is yet another reason to visit Switzerland to experience the superior train services this spring with the launch of Glacier Express’ Excellence Class, which will surely be the most sought-after seats in Switzerland. With a guaranteed window seat, this already spectacular rail journey through the Swiss Alps has never been so luxurious. If you have not yet experienced the Glacier Express, it includes 291 bridges and 91 tunnels along this eight-hour journey… and now with the addition of Excellence Class, guests have first-class concierge services from start to finish and an individual tablet with comprehensive information about the route at their fingertips.
While the seats and scenery are important to this journey through the Alps, the culinary offerings are what will make this an absolutely unforgettable experience. A refined, regional five-course meal with wine pairings is served along the way, but it would not be Excellence Class without an elegant afternoon tea and exclusive access to the Glacier Bar for a welcoming drink or aperitif – all combining to make Excellence Class not only a feast for the senses, but also one of the most exclusive tourist highlights in Switzerland. Available as of 2 March 2019.
