Bernina Express circular tour

From the mighty glaciers into sunny Valposchiavo – including transportation to and from your abode in Switzerland

Experience the most spectacular Alpine crossing twice in one day – on the Bernina Express circular tour!

The Bernina Express is now running from Landquart through the gently rolling hills of the Prättigau to Davos. The panoramic cars wind their way through the wild Zügen Gorge via disorienting helical tunnels up to an altitude of 2,253 metres! Following a leisurely lunch on the Alp Grüm sun terrace or in Valposchiavo, the Bernina Express makes its way comfortably back to Chur. The stunning views offered by the panoramic cars on this circular tour immerse you in the UNESCO World Heritage of Albula/Bernina – not once, but twice! 

It couldn’t be more convenient: both the journey from your abode in Switzerland to the point of departure in Landquart and the return journey from Chur are included in the price.

Bernina Express

The most spectacular alpine crossing: linking language regions and cultures, the Bernina Express’s Tirano - Valposchiavo - St. Moritz / Chur / Davos / Landquart route follows a serpentine course without the aid of rack-and-pinion technology. Panoramic journeys through the UNESCO World Heritage landscape are a genuine treat. The Albula and Bernina sections are masterpieces of civil and railway engineering.

Zügen Gorge

Enjoy riding through the wild and romantic gorge. The three-kilometre-long passage in the Davos landscape takes you through rugged rock formations. The Bernina Express winds its way impressively over viaducts on one of Rhaetian Railway’s most beautiful routes.

This 89-metre-high striking architectural masterpiece is Rhaetian Railway’s highest and largest masonry bridge.

A fresh breeze on the Bernina Express

Enjoy the smell of fresh mountain air and all-round views on the Albula and Bernina Lines. From 11 May to 27 October 2019 open scenic carriages will be attached to the Bernina Express between Davos Platz and Tirano. The open carriages have no windows and thus add to a perfect experience of nature. Reflection-free photos of the breathtaking landscape are guaranteed! Please note that the open scenic carriages are only available for Bernina Express customers.

Alp Grüm

Profitez de la vue inoubliable sur le glacier du Palü, le massif de la Bernina, les Alpes bergamasques et tout le Valposchiavo! La gare d’Alp Grüm se trouve à la frontière linguistique entre les zones germanophone et italophone de Suisse. Géographiquement, Alp Grüm fait néanmoins partie de la région de langue allemande.

Visual

Valposchiavo

The valley in the southern Alps is a great place to enjoy lengthy hikes, leisurely strolls and fine regional specialities. Explore the historic heart of Poschiavo, centred around its pleasant piazza, and discover various aspects of the valley's history in one of the museums or the colourful "Spanish Quarter" built by returning emigrants. Soaking up the beautiful scenery at the Lago di Poschiavo makes a fitting end to a memorable trip.

Ligne Albula/Bernina classée au patrimoine mondial de l’UNESCO

La ligne qui traverse l’Albula et la Bernina est un véritable prodige sur le plan technique comme de son tracé. Ici, paysages et chemin de fer ne font qu’un: la voie dessinant de grands virages et des ouvrages d’art hautement élaborés traversent des vallées abruptes. Le viaduc de Landwasser, le tunnel hélicoïdal entre Bergün et Preda comme le viaduc hélicoïdal de Brusio témoignent, aujourd’hui encore, de l’époque des pionniers des chemins de fer.

Visual

Viaduc de Landwasser

Le viaduc situé près de Filisur mène directement dans un tunnel par la vallée de Landwasser. véritable performance d’architecture dans les années 1901/02, la construction des trois piliers principaux s’est faite en outre sans échafaudage, avec deux grues. L’emblème le plus spectaculaire des Chemins de fer rhétiques est connu dans le monde entier.
