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.

알프 그륌(Alp Grüm)

팔뤼 빙하(Palügletscher), 베르니나 산맥(Berninamassiv), 베르가마스크 알프스(Bergamasker Alpen) 그리고 발포스키아보 전 지역의 잊을 수 없는 절경을 마음껏 감상하세요! 알프 그륌 기차역은 지리적으로는 스위스 내 독일어권에 있으나, 정확히는 독일어 지역과 이탈리아 지역 경계에 위치합니다.

발포스키아보(Valposchiavo)

남부 알프스 계곡이 여러분을 기나긴 산책과 여유로운 산보, 그리고 지역의 고급 특산품을 향유하시도록 초대합니다. 포스키아보(Poschiavo)에서 정서가 풍부한 광장이 있는 역사적인 마을 중심부를 탐험하시고 박물관이나 형형색색의 이민자가 형성한 “슈파니올렌피어텔(Spaniolenviertel)” 지역에서 이 계곡의 역사 배경을 탐방해보세요. 이 인상깊은 나들이를 라고 디 포스키아보(Lago di Poschiavo) 호수가에서 놀라울만치 아름다운 자연을 즐기며 마무리하실 수 있습니다.

유네스코 세계유산 알불라(Albula)/베르니나(Bernina) 노선

알불라(Albula)와 베르니나(Bernina)를 관통하는 노선은 건축 기술과 노선의 형상에 있어 최고의 걸작입니다. 풍경과 철도가 서로 화합을 이룹니다. 철도는 확장되는 반원형으로 섬세한 부대 구축물을 지나 험준한 협곡을 통과합니다. 란트바써 고가교(Landwasserviadukt), 베르귄(Bergün)과 프레다(Preda) 사이의 환상(環狀)터널, 혹은 브루지오 나선 고가교(Kreisviadukt Brusio)는 시간이 증명해준 철도 선구자입니다.

란트바써 고가교(Landwasserviadukt)

필리주어(Filisur)에 위치한 고가교는 란트바써 협곡(Landwassertal)을 건너서 바로 산의 터널로 이어집니다. 1901년과 1902년의 세 개의 주요 기둥 건설은 진정한 건축 기술의 걸작이었습니다. 주목할 사항: 이것은 비계 없이 두 개의 크레인으로 지어졌습니다. 레티쉐 철도의 아름다운 랜드마크는 전 세계적으로 알려진 상징입니다.
