Chur / Davos / St. Moritz – Tirano – Lugano Experience one of the most spectacular ways to cross the Alps: the Albula and Bernina lines of the Rhaetian Railway. The winding line connects, without the aid of any toothed-wheel mechanism, northern and southern Europe, providing a bridge between various language regions and cultures. A particular high-point of the ride is the panoramic view from the Bernina Express, as it passes mighty glaciers on its descent to a land of swaying palms. The train makes short work of the 55 tunnels, 196 bridges and slopes of up to 70 millimetres per metre of incline that are found along its route. The physical high-point of the RhB is Ospizio Bernina, at 2,253 m a.s.l.

Useful tip: Travel with an Italian touch Travel on the Bernina Express Bus from Tirano Just show the participating partner a along Lake Como to Lugano.

The museum is located on the famous Rhaetian railway Albula Line, in Bergün. On 1,300 square metres visitors can see over 400 items from more than a century of history and attractions like driver’s footplate simulator on board of an original crocodile locomotive, temporary exhibitions and railway experience with children’s tour and showdepot for visitors and enthusiasts.

The 1926-vintage Crocodile locomotive gets under way, pulling the special open-top carriages train. The train, and its nostalgic, green-livered open wooden carriages, will be offering trips every Sunday into the paradise on rails. Winding tunnels, viaducts, gorges and mountains are all part of the trip.

Browsing and shopping, topped off with great dining: The Rhaetian Railway brings bargain hunters to the first Alpine outlet village in Switzerland. Shoppers of all age come to its 650-metre-long main street, to seek out branded articles at reduced prices. And canny bargain hunters get home free – with the RhB.

From Chur or Davos: Discover the unique mountain landscapes of Graubünden. Over towering viaducts and through winding tunnels to Preda and St. Moritz or through the Inn Valley to Zernez. Visit some museums in St. Moritz town, or stroll along the banks of Lake St. Moritz.

The view during the early morning is covered by a massive carpet of cloud, but this soon clears to reveal impressive panoramic vistas of Valposchiavo and the backdrop of the Bergamasker Alps. Take a seat in the open-air terrace and enjoy genuine pizzoccheri neri noodles.

With natural mineral water for the good of your body and your general well-being. The spa town of Bad Scuol has eight different swimming pools. The pool at Alvaneu in the Albula valley is small but elegant. The RhB Combi ticket lets you enjoy all this for 20 % less. Climb aboard and dive in!

The national park in Lower Engadin provides a protected haven for ibex, chamois, deer and other mammals. You might even get to see a spectacular bearded vulture. The visitors’ centre in Zernez offers full information on the park's flora and fauna.

Travel at will throughout our canton, with the graubündenPASS. Climb aboard to enjoy the sunny side of Graubünden. You can travel on three days in any one week, or on five days in two weeks, with the opportunity to explore 7,106 km2 of the real Switzerland.

Useful tip: Segantini Museum St. Moritz Visit the Segantini Museum in the hometown of choice of the great artist.

Useful tip: Back to the future The glacial holes of Cavaglia are some ten metres deep and five metres wide.
