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.
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.
