Traveling by train around Europe is more than just comfort and service but also the experience and the sights you will see during the whole journey. Throughout your journey you will see huge alpine glaciers and beautiful views of the mountains and hills making your train ride not only comfortable but breathtaking as well. Here are some of the best routes of Europe by train.

Bernina Express, Switzerland and Italy. The Bernina Express is the best European train when it comes to sightseeing. The train passes by 200 bridges and 55 tunnels while it also climbs over mountains. With all of the twist and turns during the whole journey, for sure you will see beautiful alpine landscapes from right to left which ever way you turn.

Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, United Kingdom, France, Italy. Take a two day trip from London going to Paris then end in Venice. According to Business Insider, Venice-Simplon-Orient-Express offers only the best for their guests from their intricate furniture designs. For food, you don't have to worry about a thing as the chefs select only the fresh products that includes seafoods and meat as well.

Glacier Express, Switzerland. This is probably the slowest train in the world. But there's more to it than just speed. The eight hour journey maybe slow but has some of the best views you will see in your life. From the Swiss Alps from St. Moritz to Zermatt, the Glacier Express passes nearly 300 bridges in total with alpine views and snow capped mountains including the Matterhorn which is oneof the highest peaks in the European region.

Danube Express, London to Istanbul, Turkey. According to National Geographic, the Danube Expres is a private train with classical elegance, modern conveniences, and fine dining. The route begins in Budapest where you will pass by the center of Transylvania and enjoy a walking tour of the medieval town that was the birthplace of the Vlad the Impaler,  the King of the land during that time and he defended his castle by impaling his enemies to scare away the others who come and try to conquer his castle.

Belmond Royal Scotsman, Scotland. Belmond Royal Scotsman train express may be the world's most expensive train ride, and it has a lot to boast. A four day t rip from Ediburgh passing along the coast to Aberdeen and Highlands where you can see and explore castles and villages from the past. Since Scottish people love whiskey, you will be treated with that tradition as well, as whisky tours to different local distilleries will be offered.
