Bernina Express special offer confirmation

Spectacular trip for two with lunch for just CHF 129.00

Buy VISA, Mastercard, Diners, JCB, Postfinance

From glaciers to palms: the highest railway line through the Alps is sure to take your breath away – for just CHF 129.00 / EUR 119.00 when travelling with a partner or friend. You can travel from Chur to Tirano and back at this special price until 31 March 2016. The extra-large panoramic windows on the Bernina Express turn the mountain landscape of Graubünden into a cinematic experience.

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, cross 196 bridges and master gradients of up to 7 per cent with ease. The trip takes you from Chur (at 585 m above sea level) through the wild Albula Valley to the Upper Engadin and on up to Ospizio Bernina, the highest point at 2,253 m above sea level, before the train winds its way through Val Poschiavo to Tirano in Italy (429 m above sea level).

One highlight quickly follows another along the route: disorienting helical tunnels and dizzying viaducts in the Albula Valley, then the glaciers on the Bernina Pass you could almost reach out and touch. The Bernina Express travels along the entire 122 kilometres of the RhB UNESCO World Heritage route. The journey takes around four hours.  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. Enjoy this regional speciality before travelling back to Chur on the Bernina Express.

N.B.: The stretch of track between Thusis and Tirano has UNESCO World Heritage status. Structures built a long time ago remain impressive today: e.g. the Landwasser Viaduct or the Brusio Circular Viaduct. 

The Bernina Express special offer runs from 1 October 2015 to 31 March 2016, can only be booked online and has limited availability. The special offer can also be booked as a two-day trip.
