The Rhaetian Railway’s panoramic Bernina Express train starts its run in the cantonal capital of Chur, and arrives four hours later at its destination in the Italian town of Tirano.
Experience the 238.6 miles (384 kilometres) of the Rhaetian Railway’s many-faceted attractions – from the driver’s footplate.
The Bernina Express runs from Chur to Tirano via St. Moritz. The section from Thusis to Tirano follows the RhB UNESCO World Heritage Line. The modern observation cars of the Rhaetian Railway help provide an impressive experience.
At the beginning of July 2008, the World Heritage Committee of UNESCO added the Albula and Bernina Lines of the Rhaetian Railway to their world heritage list. The Rhaetian Railway is only the third railway in the world to be considered “universally outstanding” by UNESCO.
The route of the Glacier Express runs right through the Swiss Alps, from St. Moritz to Zermatt.
