“What views of the mountains you see”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

The area is almost overwhelming, looking at the mountains and seeing the pass that was snowcapped. I was in awe of the whole area; we have nothing like it in New England.

Fantastic. We even had 2 foot of snow overnight to make the scenery more spectacular. If you've never done this you must. A bucket list definite.

“Most beautiful experience of the Alps”
Reviewed 30 August 2013

We started our train journey from Chur, the oldest town in Switzerland .It was a beautiful day. The train journey was just amazing, the scenery is stunning , from the high towering mighty glaciers , and lakes below , the countless castles perched in the mountains, the quaint villages, breathtaking landscapes, gorges , viaducts , towering rock walls, and evergreen manicured landscapes. We passed through so many incredible tunnels, and bridges that I lost count of it. And the most unforgettable one was when the train went into the world -famous Landwasser Viaduct. I took a video of it that I have watched it over and over again. It is a masterpiece of engineering , that made it possible for everyone to experience the natural beauty of the Alps in the comfort of your seats. We had a 15 minute coffee break in one of the most scenic spot in Alp Grum with the view of the beautiful town of Poschiavo . We had a coffee in the station cafe's outside veranda that juts out of the building high above the valley below with the view of the melting glacier , one of the tallest waterfalls I have ever seen where the melting glacier ice has created which looks like a natural green coloured swimming pool down bellow.What a view! We continued our journey where the train does a circular route it was mind bugling because we were looking on this side of the mountain one minute and the next thing we're on lthe otherside of the mountain , it's hard to explain , the line is famously called the circular viaduct of Brusio. We decided to get off at the small town of Poschiavo a typically Italian architecture buildings all around to have lunch . We lingered for a nice homemade Italian food and caught the train back where we had a 2 hour stop over at St. Moritz. Traveling into and right through the UNESCO World Heritage site is an experience that will stay with us for a very long time . Switzerland we Love you!

Well worth doing the journey by train as not only is the scenery stunning, when traveled in June '13 also few passengers. Went from Chur to St. Mortiz, had lunch at the station cafe, as it was the only one open and reasonably priced. This is also a civil engineering masterpiece, as are many routes in Switzerland and well worth doing on a lovely summers day.
