Experience railway history up close and personal – on 16 January and 20 February 2022 as a special experience three times a day in the triangle between Samedan, St. Moritz and Pontresina – including a detour to S-chanf.

Travel back in time on a steam-train ride to the wonderful world of steam. Nostalgia, shiny metal, the sound and the smooth-running of the mechanical system create a special experience. Steam train G 3/4 No. 11 «Heidi» has been keeping pace with technology since 2015: running on low-sulphur eco heating oil, with zero sparking and an electric preheater.

Triangular trip through the Engadin

Experience a unique round trip through the wintry Engadin aboard steam train G 3/4 No. 11 “Heidi”, which was restored in 2015.


Engadin & St. Moritz

St. Moritz is famed as the birthplace of winter mountain holidays and known the world over as an Alpine 'metropolis'. St. Moritz enjoys picture-perfect winter days with style and charm: first-rate leisure and sporting activities, cultural events and world-class shopping. The Segantini Museum houses the most extensive collection of work by the famous local artist.

It looks like a village from a fairytale: Pontresina features both stylish hotel buildings from the belle époque era and houses in the traditional Engadin style with sgraffito wall decorations. Woods exuding the wonderful smell of Swiss pine and imposing glaciers surround the spa town, situated at 1 ,800 metres above sea level.
