Information Coronavirus

Among other things, the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) has issued ordinances for public transport in Switzerland. Regular public transport will continue to operate according to the timetable. Tourist traffic, extra trips and historic journeys will be discontinued. Group trips will be cancelled. Dining cars and catering services are also prohibited on the trains.

In implementation of these orders, the Rhaetian Railway (RhB) will cease operating the Bernina Express from Saturday 14 March 2020. The Glacier Express will also cease to operate from then on. These measures are expected to remain in force until 26 April 2020. The planned charter and adventure trips until 30 June 2020 will not take place.

Please note the adapted timetable. Further information at rhb.ch/coronavirus

Cavaglia Glacier Garden - Eternal witnesses of the Ice Age

This is one journey back in time you can't afford to miss. It will lead you to a little-known natural wonder: the glacier mills at Cavaglia, directly on the Bernina Line, impressively demonstrate how the Alps were created millions of years ago. Locals name the metre-deep mills "the Giants’ Pots". They represent millennia of history carved in stone! Our tip: After the guided tour, enjoy a drink with views of Piz Palü.
