most beautiful panoramic routes.
Switzerland’s oldest city charms visitors with its fine mountain setting, twisting alleys and historic buildings. Numerous boutiques, restaurants, bars, museums and galleries in the largely traffic-free Old Town create a Mediterranean-style atmosphere.
The 130km Albula / Bernina railway line is the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage listing and one of the world's most spectacular journeys. Train lovers rave about the stretch between Thusis und Poschiavo, which takes in dramatic mountain scenery and the famous curve of the Landwasser Viaduct.
The Montebello Curve has a minimum radius of 45m. The 180-degree curve gives train passengers a tremendous view of the Morteratsch Glacier. It's one of the most-photographed highlights of the entire route!
Next stop: amazement. The morning fog soon lifts to reveal a staggering view reaching across the Val Poschiavo to the Bergamo Alps.More about Alp Grüm
The Bernina Express negotiates huge differences in elevation in short distances on its journey over the Bernina Pass from St Moritz to Tirano. It skilfully rises to the challenge of the Brusio Circular Viaduct, one of the most famous landmarks on the entire route.More about the Brusio Circular Viaduct
Every ending is also a beginning. The Bernina railway ends just over the Italian border in Tirano, where the highly scenic journey in the red Bernina Express Bus to Lugano begins. Enjoy the southern flair of the route, which weaves through postcard-perfect villages and along the shores of Lake Como.More about the Bernina Express Bus
Lugano, the largest town in the holiday region of Ticino, is not only Switzerland's third most important financial centre and a conference, banking and business centre, but also a town of parks and flowers, villas and sacred buildings. With Mediterranean flair, Lugano offers all the advantages of a world-class city, combined with the cachet of a small town.
