Alp Grüm railway station is situated on the Bernina Railway, between Pontresina, in the Canton of Graubünden, Switzerland, and Tirano, in the Province of Sondrio, Italy. Located on the south side of Bernina Pass, Alp Grüm is the last station on the line in the Romansh speaking part of Switzerland.
In 1896, the Chur-Thusis line opened; this was followed by the Albula line in 1903 and the series of expansion projects carried on until 1922. All RhB lines are 1,000 mm (3 ft 3 3⁄8 in) metre gauge wide and electrified: 61 km (3. mi) (the Bernina railway from St Moritz to Tirano) is electrified at 1000 V DC. 321 km (19. mi) is electrified at 11 kV 1. Hz (including since 1997 Chur-Arosa and the new Vereina tunnel). Alp Grüm (2,091 m) is the first station to the immediate south of the summit. It is situated above Lago Palü and right below Piz Palü and Palü Glacier. After negotiating many hairpin turns, the line reaches Cavaglia (1,693 m) above Val Poschiavo; after that, the line descends across the valley towards the Swiss Italian-speaking town of Poschiavo (1,014 m).
The valley in the southern Alps is a great place to enjoy lengthy hikes, leisurely strolls and fine regional specialities. Bernina Express train.

But that’s only the start: on its route, the Bernina Express passes by the gigantic Morteratsch glacier, climbs without the help of cogwheels across Europe’s highest railway Alpine pass, the 2253-metre-high Bernina, and winds down to Poschiavo along daring loops.

Admission to the Albula Railway Museum (open daily except Monday). Price per person in double room: CHF 170.
