Bernina Express

by katie9922

I have checked the dates for the Bernina Express - it appears it runs on a winter timetable from 20 Oct to 13 Dec and the summer timetable from 10 May to 20 Oct. Does this mean it doesn't run from 13 Dec to 10 May? We are looking to visit next year either March, April, May or June. Is any particular one of these months better than another for sightseeing? Also is one section of the Bernina Express line more scenic than another - could we just do the section from St Moritz to Lugano or is the more scenic section from Chur to St Moritz. Any help with this would be appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Bernina Express

by K_V_B

This year the Bernina Express ran according to it's winter timetable from 9 Dec (2007) till 9 May, and it will also run a winter timetable from 21 Oct till 13 Dec. The summer timetable is valid from 10 May till 20 Oct. On 13 Dec (2008) next years' timetable comes in force. In Switzerland the timetable always changes somewhere in the first or second weekend of December. You can safely asume that the Bernina express will be running, and to the same timings, as no changes have been published. The only thing that might change is the exact date when it switches from winter to summer timetable and back.
The Bernina Express is also not the only train on this route. There is a train running the length of the line most every hour, so you are not dependent on the Bernina Express train.
As to what section is the most scenic? Well, the whole route is scenic. (Mind you, the Bernina Express doesn't go to Lugano, it goes to Tirano. There is a connecting bus with some services however). I'd think Chur - St Moritz is the most scenic part (especially the Albula line) but you don't need to take the Bernina express to see this route. Any Chur st. Moritz train will do.

Travel Tips for Saint Moritz

Alpine Skiing

by german_eagle

The Engadine is Alpine Skiiers' heaven. All in all about 350 km runs are prepared. It sounds huge, but the resort is divided into some separated areas.

The most frequented and probably most famous is Corviglia/Piz Nair above St. Moritz. Altitude 1800 - 3025 m. The lifts are up to date (chair lifts/gondolas/cable cars only). In 2003 the Alpine Skiing Championships took place here. Access from St. Moritz Suvretta (chair lift), St. Moritz Bad (Signal cable car), St. Moritz Dorf (Corviglia funicular) and Celerina (gondola). Free parking at Suvretta, Signal and Celerina, frequent Ski bus service to Signal, St. Moritz Dorf and Celerina. Most of the slopes are sunny and well manageable for intermediates. Some easy runs around Corviglia and some difficult runs at Fuorcla Grischa and Trais Fluors. Snow conditions are (almost) always perfect. A secret spot: the chair lift Lake della Pesch to Fuorcla Grischa (intermediate). Plenty of restaurants, high quality, but most expensive in the Engadine's skiing areas. I recommend the Corviglia self service restaurant, or still better the bistro with daily offers of outstanding quality for about 18 Sfr. Excellent food and the best hot chocolate ever at "Chamanna" on Munt da San Murezzan (operated by five star hotel Suvretta).

My favourite area is Corvatsch/Furtschellas above Silvaplana-Surlej and Sils. Altitude 1820 - 3303 m. Absolutely snow reliable. The perfect area for spring skiing. It is more challenging than Corviglia, but offers intermediate runs as well. The upper section between Murtel and the top of Piz Corvatsch is really outstanding - the runs lead across a glacier, away from the lifts or cable cars - pure nature and you. These runs are never crowded, because the capacity of the cable car to the top is limited. So expect lines at Murtel :-( However, don't miss a trip to the Furtschellas area, which is really remote and fine. Most favourite run is the standard run from Murtel down to Alp Surlej and further to Surlej. Another unique run is the run down to St. Moritz via Hahnensee restaurant, again away from lifts. Good and cheaper restaurants everywhere (Alpetta is cosy, Fuorcla Surlej is charming, excellent wood oven Pizza at Murtel). Fine Apres ski at Alp Surlej till 8 pm, every Friday night skiing till 02 am with party at Murtel!! Ski buses operate between the Engadine villages and the cable car stations.

A third big area is Diavolezza/Lagalb. It is somewhat off the beaten path, some 20 km from Pontresina toward Bernina Pass. Altitude 2100 - 3005 m. Very snow reliable!Diavolezza is sunny and mild, but offers stunning views of the glaciers and peaks in the Bernina massif. The upper part of the runs leads across a glacier. Intermediate and challenging runs are available. A special run is the route down to Pers and Morteratsch glacier and further to inn Morteratsch at the train stop. Marked, but not groomed. For experienced skiiers only! Night skiing on the standard run with party at the hut when full moon. Lagalb is very challenging, is served by a cable car and almost always has great snow. Absolutely off the beaten path, never crowded. A ski bus runs between both Diavolezza and Lagalb. Skibus and railway from the Engadine villages to both stations.

There are some other small areas in addition, worth to try out for a half day or for some relaxed skiing: Muottas Muragl, Zuoz and Maloja e.g.

However, skiing in the Engadine is always great, a combination of adventure, fun, fascinating landscape and great food.

Rental stations everywhere in the villages. On Corviglia as well. I use to bring my own to reduce costs. Ski Pass is about 300 Sfr. for 6 days - not even cheap, but public transportation and the indoor pools in both St. Moritz and Pontresina are included.

Engadine Museum

by Cristian_Uluru

The museum has been accommodated in a house specially built for that purpose, reflecting the old architectural style of the Engadine. It offers an extensive insight into the living habits of times past. Among others it displays the wooden trough from the Bronze Age that used to hold the water of the mineral spring of St. Moritz.

Winter Scenery 2009

by Dyesebel

St.Moritz is known as sophisticated, elegant, exclusive and one of the world's best resort. St.Moritz lies 1856 m above sea level. Apart from its stunning location above and alongside the lake, the resort offers an attractive mix of nature, culture, sports and peace. This was also the birthplace of alpine winter sports and held two olympic winter games.
