FROM GLACIERS TO PALMS THE BERNINA EXPRESS


The highlights of Rhaetian Railway’s Bernina Express encompasses a dramatic variety of landscapes


Running from Chur in Switzerland to Tirano in Italy, the Bernina Express is one of the world’s most unforgettable rail trips. Crossing the Bernina Pass at 7,392ft above sea level and negotiating 55 tunnels and 196 bridges, Rhaetian Railway’s meandering 75-mile path consists of


mesmerising landscapes that transition from glaciers glinting in the sun and tranquil Alpine villages to the verdant valley floor. Panoramic windows and an onboard commentary ensure that none of the highlights along the four-hour journey are missed.


HIGHLIGHTS


Albula/Bernina UNESCO World Heritage route: Constructed in the early 20th century, the Albula and Bernina sections of the track were named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2008. These lines aren’t so much built as woven into their surrounds, merging almost organically into the rugged valleys.


Landwasser Viaduct: Spanning the Landwasser Valley in six dramatic arches, the limestone Landwasser Viaduct juxtaposes impressive architecture with open expanses before disappearing into a tunnel hewn into the cliffside. The 213ft-high and 445ft-long limestone viaduct is an outstanding architectural feat, especially considering that the three main pillars were built using only two cranes and no scaffolding.


Ospizio Bernina: Passengers alighting in Ospizio Bernina will find their lungs filled with crisp mountain air. The station, which lies on the shores of the Lago Bianco reservoir, marks the highest point of the journey at 7,392ft above sea level. The station’s charming Bistro Albergo was renovated in 2013, luring guests with teatime treats and postcard-worthy vistas.
