The railway journey from St Moritz over the Bernina Pass to Tirano is one of the great trips by train. Wild landscapes, glaciers, mountains, alpine meadows all add to the attraction of this journey. Trains are clean, comfortable and run to time! Highly recommended.

One of the most amazing places I've been to, and the train that brings you there is equally as awe-inspiring

This was an amazing trip! Although it was a rainy day the sun came out when we were at the highest point and the views cleared. Such stunning scenery. We had booked seats on the Bernina Express but in the end went on the normal train as it was a better connection with the rest if journey. The only difference... More

The area is almost overwhelming, looking at the mountains and seeing the pass that was snowcapped. I was in awe of the whole area; we have nothing like it in New England.

Fantastic. We even had 2 foot of snow overnight to make the scenery more spectacular. If you've never done this you must. A bucket list definite.

Well worth doing the journey by train as not only is the scenery stunning, when traveled in June '13 also few passengers. Went from Chur to St. Mortiz, had lunch at the station cafe, as it was the only one open and reasonably priced. This is also a civil engineering masterpiece, as are many routes in Switzerland and well worth... More

Joined the Bernina Express in St Moritz, stopped off at Diavolezza to take the cable car up the mountain, made the return journey from Poschiavo lovely wee Swiss town. Outstanding scenery with many spectacular viaducts as the highest train ride moves effortlessly through the Alps.
