Twice the fun on the Bernina Express From glaciers to palms

Head south with unbeatable views — the Bernina Express lets two people travel from Chur to Tirano and back for just CHF 139 with lunch included.

The highest railway line through the Alps is sure to take your breath away and is only CHF 139 when travelling with a partner or friend.

You can travel from Chur to Tirano and back at this special price until 31 December 2016.

The extra-large panoramic windows on the Bernina Express turn the mountain landscape of Graubünden into a cinematic experience.

This feast for the eyes is followed by a treat for the palate in Poschiavo, Le Prese or Tirano where a plate of pizzocheri – buckwheat noodles – awaits.

Impressive route layout on this scenic railway journey

No other railway line links north and south in such a spectacular fashion – the modern panoramic cars of the Bernina Express pass through 55 tunnels, across 196 bridges and master gradients of up to 7 percent with ease.

The trip takes you from Chur through the wild Albula Valley to the Upper Engadin and on up to Ospizio Bernina before winding its way through Val Poschiavo to Tirano, Italy.

One highlight quickly follows another along the route with disorienting helical tunnels and dizzying viaducts in the Albula Valley, then the glaciers on the Bernina Pass.

The Bernina Express travels along 122 kilometres of the RhB UNESCO World Heritage route and takes around four hours.
