Rhaetian Railway – a world of railway experiences

Bündner Weeks aboard the Glacier Express

Viva La Grischa! For the very first time the world’s slowest express train is going to put on ‘Bündner Weeks’ from 9th May to 30th June 2015. For more than half of its journey the Glacier Express travels on Bündner tracks and so it’s only fitting that we should celebrate some of our Bündner traditions.

The Albula Tunnel

With our latest big project, a new Albula Tunnel, the Rhaetian Railway is eagerly heading towards a brand new highlight.  On 20. June 2015 the Infoarena exhibition will be opening in Preda with lots of information about the construction, the mountain, the region and the Rhaetian Railway.

Albula experience train

Each Sunday, you can travel in the nostalgic wooden coaches and open scenic carriages from Landquart to Samedan, right through the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage site, a railway paradise.

Railway Adventure Trail Albula

The section of track between the Albula Tunnel and the Landwasser Viaduct on the Rhaetian Railway’s Albula Line provides an impressive showcase of engineering skills from the pioneering days of the railway. The UNESCO World Heritage Rhaetian Railway in the Albula/Bernina Landscapes not only comprises the two world-famous railway lines, but also the wonderful landscape itself.
