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.

The regional train that operates on this route is included in your pass. Eurail pass holders must have a pass valid for Switzerland.

The Bernina Express offers breathtaking 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.
