I am trying to figure out how best to take the Bernina Express from Ticino to Chur. I will be in Locarno and leaving from there and want to take trains only. I think I need to get to Bellinzona-and then take the Bernina Express, but can't seem to navigate the rail schedule. Any advice is appreciated.

Hi smketer!

Thanks for posing this question on a new thread - much appreciated.

There are no convenient trains to get you from Locarno to Tirano (the start of the Bernina Express train to Chur).

The best option is to take a train to Lugano and then the scenic Bernina Express BUS along Lake Como to Tirano and then board the Bernina Express train on to Chur.

Take a look at our Bernina Express information page for these and other details.
For timetables and maps that may be more useful click on the link under "More on other websites" tab on the right side of our Bernina Express page that I linked above.

Let us know if you have any further issues or questions.

All the best,
Lucas
