Glacier Express, Switzerland
Don’t let the name fool you -- this train actually has a reputation for being the slowest express train in the world. And that’s just what passengers want: The leisurely 7-hour ride takes travelers from the Swiss municipality of Zermatt to Davos or the resort town of St. Moritz, with stunning alpine views of the Oberalp Pass as you ascend to heights of over 6,000 feet.
