Trenino Rosso del Bernina
The highest railroad in the Alps.
The experience that everyone should try at least on time in a lifetime is to travel by a famous Trenino Rosso del Bernina, the highest and most picturesque railway 60 kilometers long running through the Alps, that connects Tirano and St. Moritz, a city in a famous Swiss region of Engadina.
The famous red train departs only 13 kilometres away from Teglio. The railroad was included into the UNESCO World Heritage in 2008. It is one of the steepest natural railroads. The red train rises up the mountain free-wheeled, without any rack, along the narrow-gauge track. It travels up the slopes with the pendency of 70 per thousand, runs up to 2253 meters in the Bernina pass and then slowly goes down to 1800 meters in St. Moritz.
You can enjoy the 360° view from modern and comfortable panoramic carriages and admire magnificent landscapes and unique sceneries. It is a magical experience that will leave anyone breathless.
Hand-made, excellent cheese and vegetables from the garden. Delicious, seasoned well and the portions are enormous. Besides, Signora keeps on walking from table to table and top up the dishes, not only pizzoccheri but also other dishes. There are some theme lunches arranged in accordance with the period. I highly recommend the place.
