We are Indian couple and would like to go on 'Bernina Express' trip.We shall have a Swiss travel pass. We have 3nights stay(from Sept 28 to Oct 1st,at Zurich). Can it be possible to take 'Bernina Express' tour and come back in the evening to Zurich hotel? If yes,then how? Please explain the trains to be taken and the name of stations(boarding station,timings) and if,in between,can we spend some time there nearby different places?

Please reply and explain it easily as we are first-time travelling to Switzerland.I have few other questions also,to ask,but please reply this first. We have a booking at Leysin(from Oct.1st to 8th).

Welcome to MySwissAlps Saikripa!

It can be done but it will be a very long day. You can take the Bernina Express train and bus as explained on the Bernina Express page. You'll end up in Lugano and can take a direct train to Zurich from there, arriving around 9 PM. The page I linked to has all the details, including a map (red = train, black = bus).

Please see here for how to get your Swiss Travel Passes. You can print them at home to save time.
