The Swiss Red Train

Swiss Train

 

Of the several scenic mountain rail trips Switzerland offers, the Glacier Express is considered as the most

breathtaking .  It runs from Zermitt to St. Moritz passing through alpine mountains and small villages

winding its way to different tunnels and bridges.

This picturesque railway bridge is beautifully visible from the highway located close to Guarda, a pretty

town in the lower Engandine.  If you are traveling by road from Scuol to St. Moritz, you will definitely

pass by this highway.  You can park just below the bridge and walk back to take a photo of this famous

Swiss landmark.  Dont forget to wait for the red train to complete your picture perfect composition.

An Alpine Glacier

DSCF8230

This railroad is located at the foot of the Morteratschgletscher, a glacier in the Bernina Alps in

Switzerland.  If you are going to Italy from Switzerland through Passo del Bernina, make sure you

stop at a lookout area just beside the main highway in Upper Engadin to see a superb view of the

glacier. This glacier has a length of about 7 km and is a typical example of a large valley glacier that

is losing a huge percentage of ice volume due to the climatic warming.

Aside from the glacier, Engadin is famous for its sunny climate and beautiful landscapes of the

Bernina Range where the highest peaks of Eastern Alps are located.  It is also a good place for outdoor

activities such as hiking and cycling.
