My husband and I would like to do the BEX from Tirano return as we are staying at Lake Como in July. Can we do the BEX and return by local train? Where do we go to St Moritz, Cher etc.? If we have to come back by BEX how long do we have between arriving and departing? Thank you in advance Cheers Lyndie

Hello Powelly au and Welcome to MySwissAlps,

You can go one way on the Bernina Express (www.myswissalps.com/be rninaexpress) and return on regular trains but what part of Lake Como are we talking about as your starting point? You will need to get to Tirano directly by train from Italy or by train to Lugano and bus to Tirano.

You'll find the BEX timetable here.

Hi Lyndie, did you mean Tirano there? St. Moritz, Davos and Chur could all work for you:

Hello Lyndie,

Now I get the picture.

I would take the local train to Chur via Landquart and then return on regular Bernina Express route. I think the timing would work better for you. Plus itgives you a bit more scenic variety north of Pontresina.

Use the SBB Timetable (www.myswissalps.com/ti metable) to plan your travel. If you are not familiar with using the timetable it will pay to first read the instructions on that page.

You will need a reservation for the BEX (see link to BEX timetable in my earlier response) but not on the regular regional trains.
