Not only is the journey to the Diavolezza devilishly beautiful, but above all the view of the “Festival Hall of the Alps”. But that's not all. Another highlight is the ride on the panoramic train over the fascinating Bernina line. From the glaciers to the palm trees, a journey could hardly be more varied. You can comfortably climb more than 1800 meters in altitude by train. Let yourself be enchanted by the spectacular views.

After the excursion, the Pullman Express Brigade will be waiting to serve you a delicious meal in the dining car as the train winds its way through the impressive Rhine Gorge.

Andermatt - Furka - Oberalp - Eggishorn - Zermatt

From Andermatt you start the second stage. The Furka mountain steam train welcomes you. The steam train puffs through the barren landscape of the Furka with sound and smoke and overcomes the former Glacier Express route at an altitude of 2163m. In the Rhône Valley, the Glacier Pullman Express takes over again before another highlight follows. The cable car takes you up to the Eggishorn, high above the Aletsch Glacier, where the view stretches from the Jungfraujoch to Mont Blanc. After a little refreshment, the journey continues in the nostalgic special train to the destination, Zermatt at the foot of the Matterhorn.
