    What to Expect
    This 4-hour train ride through the Swiss Alps on the Bernina Express starts at the St. Moritz railway station in the center of the city. Your train departs at 9:30a.m. sharp, so make sure to show up a little early to give yourself some lead time.

    Get ready for a scenic train ride where you can catch sight of glaciers, mountains, gorges, and even a palm tree of two through the huge panoramic windows. Part of the train track is considered a Unesco World Heritage site, which is one of the only few train tracks to ever be considered. Plus, the train cars are air-conditioned to keep you comfortable, and a trolley comes by to offer snacks and beverages along the way (own expense).

    During your trip, pass by the city of Chur, which is known as one of the oldest cities in all of Switzerland. Ride along the Plessur River, and pass two lakes, Lago Bianco and Lej Nair. Enjoy the alpine scenery on the Bernina Pass, and watch as the Mediterranean atmosphere comes into view as you reach the Poschiavo Valley.

    After making it to Tirano, your train then goes back to the city you started in — St. Moritz.

    Our group had a spectacular day to take this famous train from the depot in Tirano up into the mountains. Roll down the windows and breath in the fresh air while enjoying spectacular scenery. A fabulous experience.

    Beautiful panoramic view of part of the Alps and then all fruit trees and vegetable gardens along the side in the Swiss-Italian and Italian regions. Lots of small and bigger restaurants serving local and international dishes. Also good shopping for clothes and shoes

    A once in a lifetime experience. We had perfect weather great views and overall a fantastic day out. Take a picnic lunch as food at St Moritz is way over priced (€15 for a toasted sandwich). We picked up bread and cheese on the trip up the mountain and sat in the park

    We took the Bernina Express in October from Tirano to St Moritz. (We spent the night in St Moritz and then took the Glacier Express the next morning.) We splurged on first-class tickets, which we thought were worth it because the seats were bigger and the car less crowded.

    Wow, it's so great to hear that you had the opportunity to ride on both Express trains! We are glad you enjoyed the rides and the views. Every season has it's own special ambience, so it's worth to try the ride during another time of the year as well. Best regards Rhaetian Railway

    This is a wonderful trip from St Moritz via beautiful mountain passes and tunnels to the lovely Italian town of Tirano. The seats on the train were very comfortable and the train ride by necessity at a moderate pace. There was plenty of opportunities to take photos. A great day
