Overview

One of the most spectacular ways to cross the Alps: the Bernina Express from Chur/Davos to Tirano (via St. Moritz) links up regions with different languages and cultures. This is not a rack railway and the train winds its way gently through splendid scenery. One of the highlights is the panoramic journey through the UNESCO World Heritage RhB. On the highest railway across the Alps, the Bernina Express climbs up to the glistening glaciers before descending to the palms of Italy far below. This rail link between Northern and Southern Europe builds bridges between regions with different languages and cultures.

Lovely scenery out both sides of the train at different times. Hard not to get reflections in photos but finally found a spot between the carriages with opening windows and managed to get some great photos. Trains are clean, comfortable and literature is provided on...More

No, you can’t purchase a Swiss Rail Pass there, that I know about. I suggest buying your Swiss Rail Pass before you leave on vacation.
