Take a ride on the Bernina Express, Switzerland's newest Alpine delight. This magnificent 3-hour train journey takes you along one of the most beautiful railway routes in the world.
This north-south Alpine crossing offers breathtaking views as you travel over boldly curved viaducts and through winding tunnels. Rather than using cog wheel tracks to climb the steep alpine slopes, the track circles back on itself.
The route travels amid the palms and oleanders of northern Italy in Tirano, taking you over the spiralling viaduct at Brusio and through the Bernina Pass into Engadine. Along the way you'll pass wild gorges and icy glaciers, cross soaring bridges and pass through looping tunnels and picturesque meadows. The train stops in the midst of ski runs and the original stone built Ospizio Bernina rail station, transporting you to the past with its hand signal desk and authentically stamped cardboard tickets.
