From May to October 2018 you have the unique daily opportunity to travel from Davos to Filisur and back on a historical train compilation from the 1920s. 

Nostalgia and adventure are combined in a fascinating way in this new RhB travel experience. Enjoy rail travel of a different kind from Davos to Filisur from 10 May to 28 October 2018*. In not quite 40 minutes your trip will take you through the ruggedly romantic Zügen Gorge, over the famous Wiesen Viaduct to Filisur. This is also home to the Landwasser Viaduct. This viaduct marks the heart of the famous RhB Albula Line and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. 

The nostalgic railway coaches and open scenic carriages will be pulled by the legendary cult 'Crocodile' locomotive which has been in operation since 1929. The breathtaking trip in historical carriages, some of which are more than 100 years old, is available for the normal ticket price. Furthermore, you will be given an unfamiliar glimpse into the railway world of the early 21st century. 

The historical train will be running between Davos Platz and Filisur twice a day in each direction according to the timetable. In some cases, locomotive Ge 4/4 I (BoBo 1) may be used (expected on 17., 25. and 28.05.2018).

Find out more about the history of the Davos–Filisur Line.

*The historic train will not be running between Davos Platz and Filisur on 8 and 11 June 2018. The historic vehicles will be on the rails (Samedan/Pontresina) in Engadin to celebrate 10 years of World Heritage status – further information on the anniversary to follow.

Wiesen Viaduct hike

The Wiesen Viaduct south of the Davos Wiesen station is the longest and highest bridge on the RhB network. Anyone wishing to view this imposing man-made structure close up can do just that: you can cross the viaduct, which is also the starting point of the nature trail to Filisur, on foot.

Landwasser Viaduct

The viaduct at Filisur spans the Landwasser Valley and leads directly into a tunnel. The construction of the three main pillars in 1901/02 was an outstanding architectural feat, considering that the viaduct was built using only two cranes and without scaffolding. This is the most spectacular landmark on the Rhaetian Railway and it has become famous the world over.

Albula/Bernina UNESCO World Heritage route

The Albula and Bernina section of track is a masterpiece in terms of civil engineering and routing. Landscape and railway blend into one: in wide radiuses, ingenious man-made structures punctuate rugged valleys. The Landwasser Viaduct, the helical tunnels between Bergün and Preda and the Brusio Circular Viaduct all stand testimony to the early, pioneering days of the railway.

Albula Railway Museum
