Sit back and enjoy the view of babbling brooks, deep clear lakes, lush green mountain meadows, rock and ice - in the background the mountain peaks, some still powdered white. In the panorama car of the Glacier Express, you meander comfortably over ingenious engineering structures and through numerous tunnels, always in the midst of beautiful natural and cultural landscapes. In the evening, you can soak up the impressions in the cosy atmosphere of the Private Selection Hotels and enjoy culinary creations made from local products, accompanied by a fine drop from the wine cellar!

2 nights Zermatt

Individual arrival by public transport to Zermatt. Check in at the Hotel BEAUSiTE Zermatt before your arrival and they will pick you and your luggage up at the station. During the next two days you will have plenty of time to explore the mountain world around Zermatt. Over 400 kilometres of marked hiking trails lead through the summer paradise of Zermatt. Leisurely family hikes are just as possible as dizzying alpine passages. In the background as a constant companion: the Matterhorn - feared. Myth and most-viewed photo motif of the region at the same time. In the evening, you can enjoy relaxing moments in the hotel's wellness area and are treated to a fine dinner in one of the hotel restaurants.
