We are planing to travel in July this year and wish to travel by Glacier Express. Our concern is whether in this period we shall able to see the snow view and other natural beauty by the Glacier Express since July is a warm season. We may not able to spare more time for this beautiful route will appreciate if some one suggest the best route of the journey by this train to see interesting views.

Welcome to MySwissAlps, rajultandon!

July to September are the months with the least amount of snow on the mountains. You'll see some snow-capped tops from a distance from the Glacier Express train though, plus very diverse and beautiful other landscapes. The entire route is described here: myswissalps.com/glacie rexpress/gettingthere. In case you don't have time to travel the entire route, you can pick any of the legs that appeas to you most. Please refer to "Don't have time do the full route" on myswissalps.com/glacie rexpress as well.

Hi Rajul,

I haven't been to the the RheinFall for the fireworks but you can read more about them here.
Most large towns/cities will put on a fireworks show as well (although it is July 31 at the RheinFall).
