Owner description: The most spectacular way to cross the Alps: the Bernina Express from Chur / Davos / St. Moritz - Valposchiavo - Tirano links up regions with different languages and cultures. This is not a rack railway and the train winds its way gently through splendid scenery. 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. The railway is unique, blending ideally with the alpine landscapes around the Albula and Bernina Passes. The train negotiates the 55 tunnels, 196 bridges and inclines of up to 70 per mille with ease. At the highest point on the RhB, 2,253 metres above sea level, you will find the Ospizio Bernina. Here, visitors can delight in the cultural and natural surroundings and enjoy the Alps at their most impressive.

Double celebration ... our 35th Wedding Anniversary, and my wife’s birthday. We’d planned this to happen, some time during our stay at Lake Como, with our very good friends. Bit of a trek to get to Tirano, but made it with 20 mins to spare (allow at least 2.5 hours from Como). We’d booked a return, in the 1st Class carriage, with panoramic view. We only had a day to spare, so only booked a return to St Moritz, which saw us miss some of the sights further on, so I’d recommend the full journey, if you have the time. Regular stops at beautiful photo-opportunities. Couldn’t fault it in any way. If you’re in the area, you HAVE to do it (we’d love to return when it’s been snowing). Fantastic day!!!

I took a bus into the Alps and rode the train down. The winter scenery was beautiful. There’s a lot to see on both sides, It’s difficult to see it all in 1 trip.

This trip is a must to experience amazing scenery from Italy to Switzerland. I travelled with my daughter and we both appreciated the beauty of the landscapes. We would thoroughly recommend taking this trip and will return to repeat this experience.
