Bernina-Express

For a day's excursion we would recommend: the best possible way to cross the Alps. From the eternal ice of the Bernina Range to the vineyards of the Valtellina with its southern flair. The Bernina Express is the highest transalpine railway. With an incline of 7 per cent, the Bernina Line is one of the steepest railways in the world without rack-and-pinion technology. The train starts at Chur and its destination is Tirano. All trains have panoramic cars, first and second class.

Arosa-Bahn

Also to be recommended as a day trip: from Chur, the Arosa Line travels along the sunny side of the Schanfigg valley. The Arosa Line soon winds its way through rockfaces, and then fragrant mountain woods. The comfortable train travels through a piece of unspoilt nature. In the upper part of the valley, it crosses the wild mountain Plessur River on the elegant Langwieser Viaduct. This memorable mountain trip ends in the world-famous holiday and sports location Arosa, 1800 m above sea level.
