We will be taking Bernina express from Lugano in August. We are planning on getting off in St. Moritz for the night. Do we need to book Bernina from St. Moritz to Chur for next day, or should we take a regional train. (Actually heading to Zurich). Is the cost less for a shortened version? I understand that in breaking up the trip, we would have to pay two reservation fees. correct?

Hi Mjdunford183 and welcome to MySwissAlps!

You would need to make a reservation for each Bernina Express trip - St. Mortiz is about 1/2 way on the trip so you may want to take a Bernina Express train on each - you can certainly take regional trains as well if you like (same scenery and no reservation).

Hi Mjdunford183,

I would take the regular train from St. Moritz to Chur. It's a comfortable train, and direct. To take the Bernina Express you'd have to change in Samedan and less choice of departure times.

For hotel suggestions in St. Moritz please look at moritz/hotels. Some are very close to the train station, which would be comfortable for a one night stay.
