Board the Bernina Express to cross the incredible 110m-long spiral viaduct at Brusio and climb the vertiginous 2,253m Bernina Pass. Then marvel at the astonishing Alpine views from the gratifyingly slow-paced Glacier Express, and swap rails for water as we cruise scenic Lake Constance.

Switzerland's Spectacular Rail Journeys Itinerary

  • Day 1

    Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home for your flight to Zurich. On arrival, we transfer to the high Swiss Alps and the resort of Davos in the Landwasser, where we check in to our hotel - the Steigenberger Grandhotel Belvédère (5T). Enjoy a welcome drink, meet your fellow travellers and take dinner at the hotel.

  • Day 2

    Enjoy a guided morning walking tour of Davos to introduce you to Europe’s highest city. Davos is a year-round destination. In the summer, there is free access to gondolas, cable cars, and trains, providing access to the higher mountain trails, avoiding the long walk up. Many of these mountain cable cars end at mountain restaurants offering amazing views for lunch; and there are countless well-marked hiking trails close to town. Enjoy an afternoon at leisure.

  • Day 3

    Our full-day included train journey starts in Davos where we’ll join the Bernina Express on one of the most impressive scenic rail journeys in Switzerland, climbing the 2,253-metre Bernina Pass and descending dramatically on your way into Italy. There’ll be free time in historic Tirano to enjoy its delightfully old town centre, before returning to Davos on regional trains.

  • Day 4

    Take time to enjoy your surroundings with a day at leisure. Perhaps make use of your included pass and enjoy cable-car rides up onto the Jakobshorn, Parsenn or Rinerhorn. Or, if you seek rest and relaxation amid unspoilt nature, head off on foot, by bike or by horse-drawn carriage up the romantic side valleys of Sertig, Dischma or Flüela. Enjoy dinner at the hotel tonight.

  • Day 5

    Today, we join the famous Glacier Express train and take a breathtaking journey through the high Alps in the heart of Switzerland, to the traditional Swiss resort of Andermatt. The ‘slowest express train in the world’ takes you through stunning views of the impressive Alpine landscape, from the depths of the Rhine Gorge up to the 2033-metre high Oberalp Pass. For more than 80 years, the Glacier Express has borne witness to some of the proudest pioneering feats of Alpine railway engineering, including no fewer than 91 tunnels and 291 bridges.

  • Day 6

    On today’s full-day included excursion there will be a short stop in Vaduz to enjoy views of the Rhine and the castle. From here we journey onward to Lake Constance where we cross the border into Germany and stop at Lindau, a charming Bavarian lakeside town. From here we take a cruise across the lake before rejoining the coach for the journey back to Davos.

  • Day 7

    With your day of leisure, perhaps visit Davos Lake or the Monstein Brewery - the highest brewery in Europe. Dinner is included tonight.

  • Day 8

    Today we transfer to the airport for your return flight to the UK. Upon arrival, your Titan vehicle will be waiting for the journey home.
