The panorama cars are typical for the Glacier Express and there are different versions of them. The Excellence Class car is completely new and is externally recognizable by the additional gold stripe. In this luxury car, there are only 20 comfortable lounge chairs built in so that each passenger has a window seat from which he/she can enjoy the grand scenery. Meals are served at your seat, and a bar at the end of the car waits on the guests. This rather special travelling experience is of course not very cheap. There is a stiff surcharge in addition to the first class ticket – but this price includes all meals, beverages, and many other amenities.
