Albula Line

Through tunnels and over viaducts

Acheter VISA, Mastercard, Diners, JCB, Postfinance

From Thusis, the RhB makes its way through helical tunnels and over viaducts as it climbs the Albula Valley towards St. Moritz. Harmoniously embedded in the landscape, the line is a monument to the pioneering days of railway-building and has UNESCO World Heritage status.

Even today, the 62-kilometre Albula Line is still considered a masterpiece in terms of railway engineering and routing. The RhB opened the spectacular section of track between Thusis and St. Moritz in 1903, after just five years' construction. The red train climbs over 1,000 metres in altitude – thanks to the Solis Viaduct, Landwasser Viaduct and the helical tunnels between Bergün and Preda – without rack-and-pinion technology.

Away from the track, you can hike through the unspoilt mountain world in the Ela Nature Park, on the Railway Adventure Trail Albula or visit the Albula Railway Museum in Bergün. In winter, you can go sledging down the winding trail from Preda to Bergün.

You'll experience numerous highlights on the Albula Line from breathtaking nature to the impressive viaducts.

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.

Parc Ela

From the Solis Viaduct in Alvaschein until it reaches the tunnels in Preda, the line takes you through Parc Ela, Switzerland’s largest nature park, flanked by the Albula, Julier and Septimer Passes through the Alps. Moors, dry meadows and mountain lakes are all waiting to be discovered. Lace up your hiking boots – it's worth the trip.

Le lac de Palpuogna

En 2007, les Suisses ont élu le lac de Palpuogna «plus beau coin de Suisse». Depuis Preda, vous êtes au lac de montagne en une heure de randonnée. En scrutant les profondeurs de l’eau, on est fasciné par les subtils dégradés de couleurs. Les majestueux sommets du Piz Ela et du Piz Rugnux se miroitent dans l’eau cristalline. En été, des foyers pour grillades sont à disposition.

Catering

Sometimes life makes us thirsty. Sometimes we just have a huge appetite for life itself. Neither situation poses a problem with the Rhaetian Railway. Selected regional trains operate with the nostalgic Gourmino dining car attached.
