Bernina Express : Prices/Overview

Route: Chur - St Moritz - Tirano - Lugano

Cross the Alps from North to South (or vice-versa) in style!

The Bernina Express offers breath-taking views from first and standard class panorama cars. Ride through switch-back tunnels, along rushing mountain streams, glaciers and even an alpine garden.
Technical buffs will enjoy knowing that the train climbs up to the 2253m high Bernina Pass without the help of a rack-and-pinion mechanism. The entire trip is narrated. In summer, an optional bus connects Tirano (Italy) to Lugano.

Reservations are compulsory & can be made up to 90 days in advance of travel date.
