Rhine Gorge Experience train

A genuine spectacle of nature

Acheter VISA, Mastercard, Diners, JCB, Postfinance

Train passengers, hikers and river rafters cleave their way through the impressive Rhine Gorge – now also on the Rhine Gorge Experience train.

In the summer season (from 6 June – 25 October 2020), you can now take a trip in the open scenic carriages on the Rhine Gorge Experience train every Saturday and Sunday from Landquart to Ilanz.

Ruinaulta is the name given to the monumental Rhine Gorge between Ilanz and Reichenau in the local Romansh dialect. What started out with the Flims rockslide is now a unique natural backdrop: over a period of 10,000 years, the Rhine has pushed its way through the rock between Ilanz and Reichenau. The result is a gorge that is quite rightly known as the Swiss Grand Canyon.

Discover the unique nature of the Rhine Gorge by train, on foot, by bike or by boat.

Train journey Reichenau – Tamins – Ilanz

You will travel through the untamed Rhine Gorge, along the turquoise-green waters of the Rhine, past rock walls known as 'ruinas' up to 350 metres high.

Lake Cauma

In the middle of a tranquil fir wood, it shimmers: Lake Cauma, the pearl of Flims, an oasis of relaxation. Thanks to its turquoise-green glittering waters, it is widely considered to be one of the most beautiful lakes in which to bathe in Switzerland. It can be reached in just a few minutes on foot from Flims Waldhaus. The restaurant serves refreshing cocktails and genuine Flims beer.

Chrummwag Versam-Safien

Admittedly, the Rhine is wild and cold here – not for wimps! But on really hot summer days there is nothing more refreshing than a quick plunge in the water at this spot before stretching out on a sandbank in the sun. The idyllic path from Versam-Safien railway station leads along the Rhine. It takes around 20 minutes to reach the Chrummwag headland.

«Il Spir» viewing platform

A bird's eye view for miles and miles: 180-degree panoramic views can be enjoyed from the «Il Spir» viewing platform, the name given to the Common Swift in Romansh. Chur-based architect Corinna Menn designed the platform, which can be easily reached from Flims Waldhaus via a pushchair-friendly hiking trail.
