Cross the Alps in Switzerland from north to south (or vice-versa) in style with the Bernina Express scenic train. Ride over graceful viaducts, through galleries hewn into the sheer rock, through switch-back tunnels, along rushing mountain streams, glaciers and even an alpine garden.
- Chur / Davos / St.Moritz – Bernina Pass – Poschiavo – Tirano
Conditions for Eurail pass holders
Eurail passes are valid on the entire Bernina-Express journey. Seat reservations are compulsory only for the special panorama train and bus from Tirano to Lugano (CHF 12.00 in the summer and CHF 9.00 in the winter) . The regional train that operates on this route is included in your pass. Eurail pass holders must have a pass valid for Switzerland. Although the Bernina Express partly runs through Italy, a pass for Italy is not required.
The Bernina Express offers breath-taking views from the beautiful 1st and 2nd class panorama cars. The train climbs up to the 2253 m 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.
