Bernina Express

Steeped in history and showcasing Switzerland's insanely beautiful landscapes at every turn, the  Bernina Express  is easily one of the most scenic rail journeys in Switzerland, if not the world. Each stretch of the 76-mile route presents a new perspective on the country, from the steep peaks of the Swiss Alps to sparkling lakes and charming alpine villages. The train passes by quaint old buildings and crosses impressive engineering feats, including the spectacular Landwasser Viaduct. Fifty-five tunnels burrow through the mountainsides, and 196 bridges and viaducts offer an elevated view over the fantastic scenery. From Chur, Switzerland, to Tirano, Italy, this route is what dreams are made of.   

From the carefully carved mountain tunnels to the towering viaducts and a sense of harmony with the surrounding landscape, the Albula and Bernina portions of the  Rhaetian Railway's  Bernina Express  route are endlessly impressive. In fact, the artful architecture and immense history even earned these spectacular lines UNESCO World Heritage designation in 2008. One ride aboard the train makes it easy to see why. Sizable panoramic windows present all the grandeur that surrounds the  Bernina Express. Passengers may select from either First or Second Class for the journey. Each option unlocks the ever-changing scenery of southeastern Switzerland and northern Italy from plush seats in climate-controlled cabins.   

The train departs in every season, so these memorable sights are available no matter the season. A journey of extraordinary heights and even more impressive landscapes lies ahead on the  Bernina Express.

Best of Switzerland by Rail

Switzerland
5 stars
“Our tour manager, Oliver Treacy was excellent and accommodating to our travelers. Would like to have him again on a trip. It would have been helpful for him to use the radios when speaking so those with difficulty could hear easily. I would have liked more local specialists and staying in each place x2 nights to see the city we were in. It was wonderful NOT to feel rushed in the mornings with bags and early leaving times as we have experienced on coach tours.

“The trip itself was 5 star, the only reason I rated it down was I felt there could have been more communication prior to the trip. The trains are fabulous and Switzerland is beautiful!
