What do you think about the following route at the end of January. The pount is to enjoy views both directions with panoramic windows and still have time to visit nice places.

  • 09:04-10:22 from Pontresina to Poschiavo with Bernina Panorama Winter
  • 12:23-13:00 from Poschiavo to Tirano with SBB regular train
  • 14:26-16:16 from Tirano to Pontresina with Bernina Express.

What do you think? Will i have time to see Poschiavo (maybe early lunch?) and Tirano or better spend all the time in one place? When it gets darken?

Hi bat23,

I think this is a very nice day trip. Poschiavo and Tirano are pretty small towns, so you can explore them on foot. I'm not sure if there are restaurants open for lunch that early, so be sure to look into that. It gets dark around 5:30 PM.
