The Bernina Express is only one of several trains each day that cover the 38 miles (61 km) between St. Moritz and Tirano. This makes it possible to stop off along the way to hike or enjoy the local sights.
The most popular stopover is Bernina Diavolezza in Pontresina, where you can ride a cable car to a spectacular view and summer hiking or winter skiing. A mountain hotel, the Berggasthaus Diavolezza, has basic accommodations and a restaurant.
The town of Poschiavo in the Poschiavo Valley is also worth a visit if you have time.
Tirano, at the end of the line, has plenty of monuments to interest the tourist, including the Sanctuary of the Madonna di Tirano.
