Do the Bernina express and the Swiss Rail trains travel the same route, if different ,would be possible to do a day trip , using one and returning on the other. Thanks .
We are going to stay at Pontresina for three nights. What kind of clothings we must consider to stay comfortable. We understand it could be cool. Kindly advice.
Best wishes. .
We are a couple of 62 years and we cannot walk much due to our health. As we are to visit Engadin area for holiday we preferred to stay at "Hotel Station" at Pontresina so tat we can easily board a train or bus to move around for sightseeing.
I seek your opinion if this can be worked out. We primarily wish to explore the scenic beauty of Engadin with maximum through train or bus and would like to get off where we feel interesting sight is. I shall be very thankful to have your comments to help make things smoother.
Thanks & best regards

How best can we reach Poschiavo from Milan , if we want to start from Milan around 6pm on the evening of 23rd June ? WE are a group of 7 including 3 children aged 9,9,14 . Pl note that we would like to spend the night in Suisse hotel at Poschiavo .
We're a group of 7 including 3 children reaching st.moritz at 12.30 pm on 24th June by Bernina exp. Hotel check in will consume another 30 min. Can we visit the following places on the same day as we're taking the glacier express the next morning .
Funicular upto Corviglia & over to Piz Nair by cable car from Corviglia
St. Moritz Leaning Tower
Hanselmann, the Confiserie
If at all it is possible to visit all the above places , how exactly should we go about it .
My husband and I are staying in Varenna on Lake Como. We want to take a scenic train to Poschiavo, Switzerland, spend the night there, and then continue on to Zurich to catch our flight back to the USA. I can only find information on trains TO Lake Como from Switzerland, nothing going the other way. Thanks for any information.
Hi there, how do i get from St.Moritz train station to Sils-Maria? I will be there 19th - 22nd August.
Hi, I'm traveling to St moritz in October, will be there on 13~15Oct. Is it still a good time to do some hiking?
what are the cable car/gondola hours and what will I find when I get to the top?
We are travelling from Rome to St Moritz on 24th June and intend travelling on the Glacier Express to Zermatt.
Would like to know the "must see" attractions in St Moritz and if they are within walking distance or public transport.
Is St Moritz a compact town? Would an overnight stay be sufficient?
Any recommendation for good 3 star accommodation, reasonable price, walking distance from rail station. Is the rail station near town centre.
Can we purchase Glacier Express rail ticket on day of travel or afternoon before? What is cheapest 2 or 3 day Swiss pass and will it be accepted for use on the Glacier Express?
We most likely will have 2 night stay in Zermatt , any hotel recommendations and then travel to Montreux or Geneva for 1 night as we need a train connection to Paris
I believe there is a French Rail Pass which is accepted on Swiss Rail, minimum 4 day pass. As we are travelling onto Paris this may be a better option if it is accepted on the Glacier Express without an excessive gap charge.
Appreciate all replies.
I'm planning to travel in Switzerland during the 1st-2nd week of June.
And at the end of the itinerary, I have two full-days to trip to the Eastern part of Switzerland and wondering which areas can be included for the best trip.
I planning to spend 4 nights in Interlaken to travel around the nearby mountains and cities, and then move to Zurich or Scuol to visit the Eastern part (for 2 nights) and then have to go back to Zurich to take a flight to my country.
Mainfeld is at the top of my wish list, but other than this, I couldn't make up my mind.
I'm interested in Appenzell and Scuol (+ Guarda) but I don't know I have enough time to visit both.
So could you recommend between Appenzell and Scuol (+Guarda) in terms of the beauty and the uniqueness of the town? Which one has more things to see and do?
(Please don't think about the thermal baths, since I will visit Bad-Ragaz or Leuikerbad if I can't go to Scuol.)
Here are the things I've thought about:
- very traditional village, cheese, beer, cow.. etc.
- close to Zurich
- scraffiti houses (I was hooked by this feature!)
- far from Zurich
I'll wait for the kind replies from you guys!
Thank you! :)
how close is muottas muragl from st moritz
how do we do that?
I will be visiting St. Moritz this summer and I'm hoping to visit a historic church that still holds services. So far I haven't found anything. Suggestions?
What is a good way to get from St. Moritz to Lugano in May. The Palm Express bus starts in June and we didn't want to take the Bernina express?
I am planning to take a trip at the of April on the Bernina Express to St.Moritz but I have to go back to Tirano Italy after just 21/2 hr
So in that time I have to have lunch.Can anyone tell me if its possible to take a short cable car to a nice place where I can enjoy the view and have lunch and back to the train station in 2 hrs?
We have already reserved seats for Bernina express departing at 8.32 am from Chur to Tirano on 28th aug. morning.
we would be making our base in Lauterbrunnen , and later may be Lucerne (not decided as yet ) . Suggestion wanted,
1) where should I make my stay on 27 aug. .in zurich or in Chur ? so to reach Chur early morning .
2) we have total 6 days stay in Switzerland so which Swiss pass should we buy ? so it covers our Bernina Train journey too ?
My husband, toddler and I are planning a trip to St. Moritz, Switzerland in middle of May this year. What do you recommend in clothing? What are the temperatures like in May? How is the wind chills? Should we dress warmly?
We would like to visit Graubunden Region for the Easter holidays.
Can anyone suggest a good self catering accommodation please?
And any suggestions where are the best places to visit please?
Starting next week, I will start working in St. Moritz.
The closest airport in wich Ryanair operates is Bergamo - (Orio al Serio).
My question is, is there any easy / direct way to travel from Bergamo to St. Moritz by train?
Thank you very in advance for any help
we are driving from Fussen to Lake Como, planning to stop in the St Mortiz area overnight to get a break from the drive and tour the are briefly the next morning. Can you recommend the more scenc drive? Is it along 27 or is it better to go down A13 and cut across from Thusis to St Moritz? Which is the easier drive?
I am arriving in Milan on a flight from the US; arrival is 8AM on 27 Feb (that's a Sunday). I need to be in Sils Maria (outside St Moritz) for a meeting the next morning at 8:30AM; so, I need to arrive in St Moritz the evening of 26 Feb, but want to spend as much time as possible in Milan on 27 Feb (sigthseeing!).
I think I can rent a taxi / car service for approximately350 Euros for a one way trip from Milan to Sils Maria; but, I would rather take a train if it's reliable. There are trains leaving Milan at 4 and 5PM on 27 Feb, and arriving in St Moritz later that evening. These trains look like a good option - but they have a few transfers without much time in between trains. Also, there may be a bus journey included as well. I'm concerned that if I miss a transfer then I won't be able to arrive in St Moritz that evening (which is essential - since I need to be at a meeting in Sils Maria on 28 Feb early in the morning). I would appreciate any insights about the train trip, the reliability, and risk of missing a transfer (for example, because the 1st train on the journey is late). Thank you.
I'm going for a short trip to St. Moritz - 2 nights there. I'm not a skier but I look fwd to go to the mountains to enjoy the view and to enjoy a little bit of the snow.
I liked the following places which I think are close by to St. Moritz and close to each other too - Diavolezza, Piz Nair, Piz Corvatsch and Muottas Muragl.
I suspect I wont be having the time to go to all 4 of them but would love to go to 1 or 2 and I would love to seek suggestions from fellow VTers here - to which 1 or 2 places should I go?
Another thing - besides paying for cable car / mountain railways up there, do I have to pay any entrance fees although I dont ski?

Hi, I arrive at St Moritz on the Glacier express and leave on 22nd for Interlaken. Appreciate some tips on what to do. Generally like landscapes and natural beauty rather than museums etc. Thanks in advace.
When going to Switzerland I'll take a train ride there.
I know that hitchiking doesn't have to be a safe way of travelling but wanna ask. Does anybody have a good experience with hitchiking in Switzerland? Do people give you a lift often?
We plan to go up to the top of Corvatsch by the cable car , if the weather is OK.
Tickets prices are not cheap so that we wonder if it's worth a visit?
Is the climbing up by the car a good experience?
What about view from the top of it ?
Drop us a line please.
We will be there at the end of July and we wonder if we can find a restaurant or tavern serving traditional Swiss foods p.e. locat dried meats, cheese, fondie, roestie, etc
We love Swiss specialities and want to enjoy it at their original place.
Will be happy to have an answer :)
I just re-checked a travel schedule. It now appears all trains that formerly ran from Scuol-Tarasp to Pontresina now originate in Ardez. There seems to be shuttle-bus service from Scuol-Tarasp to Ardez. Does anyone know what happened? Is this permanent? Just curious...
I am going this year to White Turf, is anyone else going?
Any advices for the best viewing spots? Or parking?
I have nevr been before to St.Moritz, is it large, can we walk from the centre down to the lake for the races?
Thanks so much!
