Bernina Express

From glacier ice to Italian gelato

The Bernina Express travels on the highest rail crossing of the Alps. With grades of up to 7%, the Bernina Line is one of the steepest railways in the world without a cogwheel track.

From north to south or vice versa. From spring to summer, from summer to autumn, from autumn to winter. High-level railway experiences through different seasons and three cultures. Start from either Chur or Pontresina on the only train journey to cross the Alps.
