My wife and I will be traveling through Switzerland for the first time in our lives during the first week of May 2023.
We already have purchased our Swiss Travel Pass and would like to take 3 Premium Panoramic Train Rides in 3 Days (in the middle of our week), but we're encountering an issue on Day 2 that we could use some expert advice with.
Day 1 will be on the Gotthard Panorama Express from Luzern to Lugano. We already have our seats reserved
Day 2 is intended to be on the Bernina Express from Lugano to St. Moritz. More below on the issue we've encountered.
Day 3 will be the Glacier Express from St. Moritz to Zermatt. We already have our seats reserved
The Bernina Express is not showing a Lugano to St. Moritz route for Wed. May 3. It's showing the bus portion from Lugano to Tirano, no problem. And, it's showing a complete route (bus and train) from Lugano to Chur, no problem, but nothing from Lugano to St. Moritz. I know we can take the bus leg of the Bernina Express from Lugano to Tirano and then a regional train from Tirano to St. Moritz, but we'd really like to have a reservation for the entire Day 2 journey. I considered reserving from Lugano to Chur, and simply getting off the train at St. Moritz, but I'm concerned that not all Bernina Express trains make a stop in St. Moritz. I believe I read somewhere that all Bernina Express trains make a stop in Pontresina. If that's true, perhaps I reserve a Lugano to Chur trip on the Bernina Express and then exit the train at Pontresina (if the train will not be making a stop at St. Moritz). Suggestions?
