FROM THE GLACIER EXPRESS

On our visit to Switzerland this summer, we took the Glacier Express from Brig to Chur. An important element of holidaying in Switzerland is a trip on the Glacier Express. This great sightseeing train takes you through the Alps in Switzerland on an 8 hour trip that passes through some of of the most breathtaking sights. The train has huge panoramic glass windows that give you a fantastic view of the surroundings. We did the run from Brig to Chur in 7 hours drinking beer and enjoying the sights.
The train passes some of the highest points of the mountains on its trip. As we were travelling in summer, there was no snow on the tops except the last bit that was drying up.
The Swiss countryside is beautiful and green with coniferous trees.
