The World Heritage Pass gives you free train travel on the World Heritage route. You can travel as often as you want on trains between Thusis and Tirano for two whole days – for example to the Albula Railway Museum in Bergün, the Cavaglia Glacier Garden or to Poschiavo for lunch.
The World Heritage Pass is the free pass for discoverers on the Albula and Bernina section of track that is now over 100 years old. In terms of civil engineering and routing, the UNESCO World Heritage Rhaetian Railway in the Albula/Bernina Landscapes is a true masterpiece. Spend two or more days taking in the sights in three language and cultural regions. The most popular photographed subjects are the Landwasser Viaduct, helical tunnels between Bergün and Preda and the Brusio Circular Viaduct.
The free travel also includes the compact RhB UNESCO travel guide – with lots of illustrations and detailed documentation on 96 pages.
There is an incredible collection of highlights on the UNESCO World Heritage route.
Co se týče stavitelské techniky a vedení trati, je dráha přes oblasti Albula a Bernina mistrovským dílem. Krajina a železnice splývají v jedno: v širokých zatáčkách, rafinovaných stavbách vedoucích strmými údolími. Svědky doby pionýrů železnice jsou viadukt Landwasser, točité tunely mezi stanicemi Bergün a Preda nebo kruhový viadukt u Brusia.
The Albula Railway Museum in Bergün takes railway fans on a journey into the past. A simulator lets visitors drive the legendary Crocodile locomotive along the Albula Line themselves. Railway enthusiasts and families will be fascinated by the old stamps, films and models.
The Albula Valley is dominated by engineering structures. The Railway Adventure Trail Albula leads from Preda to Bergün, then on to Filisur. Over its three stages you get a close-up view of viaducts, mountains and a roaring mountain brook. Information panels provide background information on the UNESCO World Heritage route.
Along the famous track to pure excitement on wooden runners: that's what the Preda/Darlux – Bergün sledging adventure holds in store. After the train has spiralled its way up the mountainside, the descent by sledge can begin: six kilometres from Preda to Bergün and four kilometres from Darlux to Bergün.
Střecha Rhétské dráhy leží ve výšce 2 253 metrů nad mořem. Předěl mezi jezery Lago Bianco a Lej Nair tvoří zároveň také jazykovou hranici mezi románským Engadinem a italským Valposchiavem. Nádražní bistro Albergo bylo zrekonstruováno roku 2013 a můžete si tady dát chutnou svačinku – «Zvieri».
During the Ice Age some 11,000 years ago, the Palü Glacier formed a glacial hollow here. The glacier mills at Caviglia are ten metres deep and five metres wide. The ice has left behind a fascinating landscape full of natural sculptures, which can now be reached directly by rail. Experts will guide you round, providing fascinating details.
Reaching the border: the little Italian town of Tirano is a customs post and the southern point of departure of the Bernina Line. The pilgrimage church of Madonna di Tirano dominates the romantic Old Town. The Italian way of life is reflected by the palazzi and ice cream.
