Great Swiss train trip: Chur to St. Moritz

Graubunden view from train

If you’re looking for a simple train trip in Switzerland that has lots of great scenery, try Chur to St. Moritz (via Tiefencastel). Run by the Rhaetian Railway (aka Rhätische Bahn), which is famous for the Bernina Express and Glacier Express routes, this trip is short and sweet. It’s two hours long, has great views, and doesn’t cost extra if you use a SBB Tageskarte.

My photos don’t really do it justice since I was too busy enjoying the view to spend too much time photographing it, but I hope this gives you an idea.

    1. Yeah, it’s about 3-1/2 hours from Zürich, then 3-1/2 hours back. You can time it to have lunch in between. But there are even more spectacular routes if you don’t mind taking more time. Just Google Bernina Express and Glacier Express to see two famous examples.
