The experience

From 24 April to 31 October 2021, the Rhine Gorge Experience train will be travelling from Landquart to Ilanz every Saturday and Sunday. There are two connections in the morning and one in the afternoon. So you have several options for travelling through the Rhine Gorge in the open scenic carriages. In addition, the timetable thus allows you to get off and on again, and also gives you the option of walking between two stops and getting on the train again later.

The trip from Landquart to Ilanz takes just under ninety minutes. This leaves plenty of time to discover the Rhine Gorge with all your senses from the train. Take photos of the impressive rock formations with no window panes to get in the way, wave to the river rafters and canoes on the Rhine, and feel what it means to travel through a dark tunnel in an open carriage! 

The open scenic carriages

They are yellow. And they are fitted with wooden benches. Anything but conventional. But that is exactly what makes the difference! The backrests of the wooden benches can be adjusted so that four people can sit facing each other or so that everyone can look in the direction of travel. And the most important thing is looking out of the carriages because there is simply so much to see!
