High up to the glacier glitter of the mountains, deep down to the palm paradise of Italy. The Bernina Express is the highest railway line across the Alps, connecting northern Europe with the south. And it does so in a wonderful way. The route fits in perfectly with the magnificent mountain world. This is where the enjoyment of nature and cultural experience become a unity, where it becomes the most beautiful experience in the Alps.
What was built long ago still impresses us today, like the Landwasser and the circular viaduct of Brusio. A panoramic ride through the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Rhaetian Railway is a real pleasure. The Bernina Express masters 55 tunnels, 196 bridges and gradients of up to 70 easily. The route from Thusis - Valposchiavo - Tirano is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is the trademark of the Rhaetian Railway. Thanks to the modern panorama coaches, the Bernina Express offers unlimited views of the unique, unforgettable and unspoiled Alpine panorama.
On this journey you will experience a change of scenery in a very special way. The tough charm of the high mountains, a few hours later already in Italy in Tirano and then in Lugano under palm trees where pure Italianità is waiting for you.
