A seven day rail holiday aboard the Glacier Express is the perfect way to enjoy the majesty and tranquillity of the Alps. The region is synonymous with gorgeous scenery, characterised by lush meadows, crystal-clear rivers and vast mountains, which makes a slow train ride the perfect means of transport to drink in the region’s serenity.
Your magical getaway begins in style, as you’ll take the Eurostar from London St. Pancras to Paris. After a few short hours, and more than a couple of glasses of Champagne, you’ll arrive in the delightful city of Strasbourg.
Strasbourg’s most iconic attractions include the Cathédrale Notre Dame and the Astrometric Clock. Be sure to sample the sauerkraut while you are there, as it is one of the city’s most delicious of culinary offerings.
