    I am travelling to Switzerland in May 1st week this year. Kindly advise which part of the Glacier Express route is most exciting & beautiful.

    I have both the option below:

    1) Either from Zermatt to Andermatt
    2) from Andermatt to St. Moritz

    Also as I have to go to Venice from Swiss, I think option 2 seems more convenient (as far as travel is concerned) as I can get to Venice quickly from St. Moritz as its nearer to Italian border. Kindly advise.

    Also please let me know if I can use swiss pass till Swiss border & then buy a ticket to Venice from there?

    Many thanks in advance.

    Hi bikashisonline,
    Both legs, Zermatt-Andermatt and Andermatt-St. Moritz are exciting and beautiful.

    For me option 2, Andermatt-St. Moritz is slightly favorite (others might have a different opinion).

    If you are sure traveling to Venice is more convenient from St. Moritz, I think option 2 will be a good choice. Just to be sure about the most convenient connection I suggest you check the Time table.

    The Swiss Pass can indeed be used till the Swiss border. See the (PDF) overview of the network on which the Swiss Pass is valid on the Swiss Pass page.

    Enjoy your stay
