Rhaetian Railway

A brief portrait

With around 1,800 employees, we offer 15.5 million passengers a year a memorable journey through the Swiss canton of Graubünden.

Our 385-kilometre network boasts a number of fascinating facts: one third of the network is more than 1,500 metres above sea level. One third of it is a UNESCO World Heritage site. And one fifth of it is on or in man made structures.

With our regional and freight trains as well as the Vereina car transporter, we ensure reliable transport chains in the Swiss canton of Graubünden. With the observation-car trains Bernina Express and Glacier Express as well as the UNESCO World Heritage “Rhaetian Railway in the Albula/Bernina Landscapes”, we have brands which are known all over the world. Brands we both nurture and position together with our partners in tourism.

We operate a safe, customer-friendly and clean railway, which operates punctually every day. We move Graubünden and fascinate customers from all over the world. With efficient traffic handling, new and modern vehicles, the widening of our offer and fascinating products, we want to further augment the Rhaetian Railway experience: we offer top performance in a modern way yet nevertheless with an unmistakeable Graubünden character.

We work in a sustainable way, make 100-year-old bridges and tunnels fit for the future, increase energy efficiency and opt for renewable energies from hydroelectricity. With the building of a new Albula Tunnel, we are currently in the middle of a mammoth project.

All of this is only possible thanks to the great commitment and dedication of all 1,800 RhB employees. Together with strong partners from tourism and business, and the great commitment of our owners and client - the confederation and the canton - for “their” railway.
