I was planning to travel by Bernina express from Chur to Tirano as I have read that this is the most scenic route. However, I have to be in interlaken next day and I find the only way to come to this place (or any other place like Zurich etc) is to take the Bernina Express back again to Chur. I do not want to be in the same train again covering the same route and also this would be quite time consuming.

Is there any otherway to have quick travel from Tirano to Interlaken or Zurich. Would really appreciate your feedback. Looks like the journey is very beautiful but not practical if I am not heading towards Italy.

Hello arin.ray! Yes, there's an alternative: you can travel from Tirano to Lugano by Bernina Express bus, and continue your trip to Zurich or Interlaken by train there. You can check this using the Swiss timetable and the Bernina Express timetable. However, this is a time consuming trip as well and you'd arrive in Interlaken quite late, about 22.30 pm. Returning over the same route back to Chur would easier. And it's a stunning scenic route, so enjoying the same views twice may not be that bad at all :-).
