Last weekend we planned glacier express and booked everything from Chur. But when the train came at chur it didn’t have our coach and they neither informed nor upgraded , instead he said.. AC of ur coach was not working and so we have upgraded u in this coach which was without AC.. only you could open the window, infact it was a downgrade as coach was very old. I never imagined something like this in Switzerland. And here it’s so hot that one can’t imagin travelling without AC and that too for 6 hrs.. we had to leave and travel back to Zurich to take another 2 trains .. to Berne and then to germatt but then at Visp we came to know that due to some accident , train is not going to germatt and since it’s a no car area , we were quite frustrated but then got a cab and reached Germatt around 8 PM.
It’s beautiful beyond imagination, a dreamy place, we were booked in Alpine stadt hotel, near railway station only. We kept the luggage and went out to dinner at Golden India.. Indian restaurant, they take the last order at 8.45, so we hurried and enjoyed everything even kulfi.
Next day we took a special train to Gornergat Matterhorn, It’s a 45 minute journey to the highest top of Europe The route is really steep and people get down at stops for hiking. Ticket is also high, it’s 110 chf for adults.
At the top there are multiple attractions, like virtual really of all peaks around Matterhorn, stone building, restaurant and ice palace
This is heaven for hikers and nature lovers
