The most beautiful experience in the Alps
From high up among the towering glaciers of the mountains down to the swaying palms of Italy, the Bernina Express, the highest transalpine railway in the Alps, provides a link between northern and southern Europe. And it does so in the most wonderful way imaginable, on a railway line that coexists in perfect harmony with its glorious mountain setting.
The wonders of nature and the cultural achievements of man merge into one to offer one of the best ways ever to experience the Alps.
A UNESCO World Heritage that moves
Running along 122 kilometres of track, passing through 55 tunnels and over 196 bridges and viaducts, the line followed by the Bernina Express is a masterpiece of engineering skills. Its combination with the surrounding landscape is what constitutes its recognition as a UNESCO World Heritage site – a World Heritage site that really does stir the heart.
The panoramic cars of the Bernina Express offer a travel experience in a class of its own. The large panoramic Windows give passengers the feeling they could almost reach out and touch the viaducts, gorges, glaciers and mountains. The panoramic cars are air-conditioned and offer first-class travel comfort. The light-filled coaches, the unique landscape and the personal service all stay in the memory for a long time.
