The Bernina Red Train
Departing from Tirano and passing immediately next to the majestic Basilica della Madonna di Tirano, considered one of the three most beautiful churches in Lombardy, the Bernina Train (also known as the Red Train) after a few kilometres reaches one of the most suggestive points of the route, the marvellous helical viaduct of Brusio.
After passing Lake Poschiavo and the town itself with its characteristic patrician houses and historic buildings, the train continues on to the Alp Grüm viewpoint at 2,091 m with a breathtaking view of the Valposchiavo. After passing Lago Bianco, you reach the Valico del Bernina, from where you can admire the imposing Morteratsch glacier and the Pizzo Bernina mountain group, the only four-thousand metre peak in the Central Alps.
From there, immersed in the silence and enchantment of the landscape, the Red Train begins its descent towards the 1,775 m altitude of St. Moritz, the destination of this incredible journey.
