By the light of the full moon

Incredibly beautiful

Climb the Bernina Line from St. Moritz by the light of the full moon. Your tour guide will welcome you personally on board the panoramic car and serve a welcome drink at your reserved seat.

Everything is illuminated: the special night-time trip starts in St. Moritz and continues on past the eternal ice of the Morteratsch Glacier and Lago Bianco all the way to Alp Grüm. This mystical section of line through the glaciated mountain landscape is the stuff of anecdote and legend.

At the Ristorante Albergo Alp Grüm at 2,091 metres above sea level, your host will serve a fine glacier fondue. As twilight sets in, the full moon rises in the sky over Graubünden. On the return journey the lights on the train go out. Classical music plays. The Valtellina wine tastes twice as good.

A fascinatingly different gift.

Enjoy magical moments on our trip by the light of the full moon along the Bernina Line.

Travel by the light of the full moon

The full moon turns the white mountain scenery around the Bernina Range into a mystical landscape. When the lights on board the train are dimmed, a magical mood arises.


Alp Grüm

The view from here is unforgettable: the Palü Glacier, Bernina Range, Bergamasque Alps and all Valposchiavo. On the sunny terrace of the Restaurant Alp Grüm, the owner serves genuine pizzocheri – the legendary buckwheat noodles – made to his own special recipe.

Ospizio Bernina

The highest point on the RhB is situated 2,253 metres above sea level. The watershed between Lago Bianco and Lej Nair is also the language frontier between the Romansh-speaking Engadine and the Italian-speaking Valposchiavo. The Bistro Albergo at the railway station was renovated in 2013 and serves tasty snacks at teatime.


Albula/Bernina UNESCO World Heritage route

The Albula and Bernina section of track is a masterpiece in terms of civil engineering and routing. Landscape and railway blend into one: in wide radiuses, ingenious man-made structures punctuate rugged valleys. The Landwasser Viaduct, the helical tunnels between Bergün and Preda and the Brusio Circular Viaduct all stand testimony to the early, pioneering days of the railway.
