Does anyone have any experience with the Bernina express? I was thinking about just doing that through switzerland before heading back up to Amsterdam and possibly just staying at one of the cities along the route or in Chur. Is it worth it?

This is probably a stupid question but it says that regular trains do this route as well… I don’t get it.. why pay extra for the bernina express and not be able to get on and off? Or is it the same route, but different tracks with different scenery? Is the bernina express just good because the panoramic cars…or cause it goes slower? Also if it’s available, should I take the cars with the removable top, or is it a better ride with air conditioning haha…

If I decide to take the Bernina express which city at the end should I get off at and stay in?

Or if I decide to just take one of the regular trains, which towns along the way do you find to be the best? If I want to explore just for a few hours or so, are there any stops along the way that are notable? Or a small town that would be nice to stay in.

Thanks!
