Highlights

Landwasser bridge

This is the famous tall stone bridge between Tiefencastel and Filisur. You can see the photo in the Bernina Express Photo Gallery.

 

Panorama wagon

There are panorama wagons on this line. It has much bigger windows, so you can see better view. It is worth paying a bit more, or not...? 

 

Reservation

It depends on the season, but It would be good idea to reserve the seat. You can do it at the stations which are a bit bigger.

You can reserve the seats in the dining car, too.
