Advice for Glacier express from Murren to Zermatt

Jump to last reply

Hi, I plan to experience the Glacier express after leaving Murren on 9 Dec. I am heading to Geneva on 10 Dec.
On 9 Dec, I was told that I could go to Brig and take the glacier express to Zermatt. Stay one night and depart for Geneva on 10 Dec. Please advise me.

1. Is it worth the trip to take Glacier express just to see the scenery from Brig to Zermatt?

2. Is there another alternative for me? Such as I will go to Chur to catch the 1115 train. So what is the travelling time from Murren to Chur? Is it 3.5 hr? Can I make it on time?

3. I checked the timetable for GE. It states at Brig, 1640, stop for deboarding. What does deboarding mean?

I cannot figure out how can I do this leg of my first trip to switzerland. I hope you can give me suggestions.

Cheers
First time traveller to Switzerland
