Montreux - Switzerland to Milan via Zermat

Want to stop at Zermat on the way to see the Matterhorn. Is this journey possible to book? I think part of it may be on the same rail that the Glacier Express travels on. Is it possible to book that part of the journey on the Glacier Express too?

Hello Carmel,

Thanks for your question.

The Glacier Express is a scenic train offering a panoramic trip through the Alps in Switzerland. Main stations on the route are Zermatt, Brig, Andermatt, Chur, Davos and St. Moritz.

For your journey from Montreux to Milan, book and travel as follows:

- Montreux to Zermatt via Visp – Eurocites trains.

- Zermatt to Milan via Visp – Eurocites and Cisalpino trains.

Lastly, you would have to Email our fulfillment team and they would help you book tickets on the Glacier Express offline as it cannot be booked on the website.

You can mail us on the ‘Contact Us’ page. You would have to select ‘Already booked’ tab and send in your message.

The route to Milan is not the same as the Glacier Express. The Glacier Express heads Eastwards to St Moritz and back. So as you would like to experience the Glacier Express, I would suggest you to board to Glacier Express at Zermatt and either go to Zurich and then take the Cisalpino to Milan or get back to Visp and then head to Milan.

In order to book tickets, please visit our website www.raileurope.com.au.

You would need to feed in the Departure city and the Arrival city along with the travel date and preferred time & the number of passengers (Senior, adults, youth and children), and then click on “search tickets”. Once you do so, you would find the schedules along with the fares. You need to select the fare which is preferable to you and then add it to Cart. Once added, you need to mention the names of the passengers to make the payment on the next page.

Hope this helps!!!
