The Bernina Red Train

Not only does it bring together the alpine charm of St. Moritz and the green pastures of Chur, it also links the different languages and cultures of Switzerland, one of Europe’s most visually spectacular countries, and Italy, the land of La Dolce Vita. The train ascends one of the highest railways in the mountains, amid shimmering glaciers, before descending to the palm-fringed lakeshores of Italy.

Once you arrive in Tirano, there’s an additional bus service to Lugano, back in Switzerland, passing along the glittering shores of Lake Como and Lake Lugano. This is a shorter journey, so there are no luxury cabins or overnight stops, just a relaxing seat for whistle-stop tour of the Alps and a choice of refreshments on board.

Life on board Bernina Express

Enjoy relaxing seating in a choice of First- or Second-Class coaches, both with vast panoramic windows to enjoy the spectacular views. This unique journey is full of wonderful touches, from the spectacular circular viaduct in Brusio that winds gracefully around 360 degrees to the exclusive Bernina Express iced tea and Lindt chocolate hearts in a Bernina Express souvenir box that each passenger receives.


In First Class, there’s a little more space – an arrangement of two plus one instead of two plus two – and relaxing leather seats.


In Second Class, settle in to a comfortable fabric seat with a small table for convenience.

Off-Train Experiences

The journey takes about four hours from start to finish, travelling more than 120km of track, and passing through 55 tunnels and 196 bridges and viaducts. The train makes multiple stops along the route and runs in both directions; to experience all of the thrilling curves, turns and jaw-dropping views, it’s a treat to ride it from start to finish.
