Bernina Express special offer

Panoramic journey for 2 people including lunch for just CHF 139.00

Buy VISA, Mastercard, Diners, JCB, Postfinance

The Bernina Express lets two people travel far together – from Chur to Poschiavo, Le Prese or Tirano and back for just CHF 139.00, with lunch included. The extra-large panoramic windows on the Bernina Express are sure to turn the mountain landscape of Graubünden into a cinematic experience! This feast for the eyes is followed by a treat for the palate in Valposchiavo or in Tirano, where a plate of pizzocheri – buckwheat noodles – awaits. Enjoy this regional speciality before travelling back through the UNESCO World Heritage landscape aboard the Bernina Express.

The Bernina Express special offer runs from 01 September 2021 to 28 February 2022 and can also be booked as a two-day trip.

What to expect
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.

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 UNESCO World Heritage RhB 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.

Nice to know
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.

Information Coronavirus

As of 16 May 2021, the Rhaetian Railway is once again operating regional trains and the Bernina Express to Tirano in Italy. The currently valid regulations of the Italian government apply for entry. 

Further information and notes on booking

Pizzoccheri - this buckwheat pasta dish is a 'must' in Valposchiavo.

The 136-metre Landwasser Viaduct carries the train across the Landwasser Valley in a sweeping curve, right in the middle of a sheer cliff face.

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.

오스피지오 베르니나(Ospizio Bernina)

레티쉐 철도의 지붕인 이곳은 해발 2,253미터에 위치합니다. 라고 비앙코(Lago Bianco)와 레이 나이르(Lej Nair) 호수 사이의 분수령은 동시에 로만어권 엥가딘(Engadin)과 이탈리아어권 발포스키아보(Valposchiavo)의 언어권 경계이기도 합니다. 역에 위치한 알베르고(Albergo) 간이식당은 2013년 리노베이션되어 스위스의 간단한 오후 간식인 맛있는 츠비에리(Zvieri)를 여러분께 선보입니다.

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.

브루지오 나선 고가교(Kreisviadukt Brusio)

고가교는 우아하게 360도를 돌아 나가며, 좁은 발포스키아보(Valposchiavo) 계곡의 고도 차이를 극복하기 위해 노선 역시 감기듯이 길게 늘어서있습니다. 브루지오에 위치한 나선 고가교는 베르니나 선 최고의 장관을 선사하는 건축물입니다.

Tirano

Reaching the border: the little Italian town of Tirano is a customs post and the southern point of departure of the Bernina Line. The pilgrimage church of Madonna di Tirano dominates the romantic Old Town. The Italian way of life is reflected by the palazzi and ice cream.
