World Heritage, natural history and railway culture - all in one for CHF 25
All manner of exciting things to do with the building work, the mountain, the region and the Rhaetian Railway: The Infoarena in Preda offers an experience-rich insight into the rebuilding of the Albula Tunnel. Come along for an in-depth look into the exciting world of tunnel building.
The Infoarena in Preda is keeping a running record of progress on the major construction project that is the rebuilding of the Albula Tunnel. Due to construction work, only the Info Pavilion will be open daily from 8.00 to 20.00 from May to June 2021. From July to the end of October 2021, the Infoarena will be fully accessible again. Visiting is on an individual basis and free of charge.
An RhB train awaits at the red-painted, 165-metre-long site fence, packed with all manner of exhibits and facts in German and English worth knowing about geology, tunnel technology, logistics and other exciting subjects involving the region and its very own railway. Fun items such as a virtual footplate ride and children's slides and climbing frames complete the list of attractions on offer.
Younger visitors will be delighted by presence of Kobali the Mole, with an adventurous expedition through the construction site, "virtual blasting" and a surprise included!
