The magic of the mountains or vibrant city life? The oldest town in Switzerland offers both. Picturesque lanes and snow-covered peaks, modern shopping centres and unspoilt natural beauty, trendy restaurants and interesting museums. That's simply Chur: the first city of the Alps.

The Prättigau region between Landquart and Davos is both gently rolling and at the same time wildly mountainous. Hikers, bikers, those with an interest in culture and those who enjoy the finer things in life will all find something to write home about here – coupled with true hospitality.
Genuine Engadin villages and a rich cultural history with architectural, linguistic and culinary specialities: Lower Engadin is well worth a visit, especially for its unique landscape. The National Park is home to marmots, ibex and deer. In the National Park Centre at Zernez, you can find out everything you need to know about the flora and fauna of Switzerland's largest protected area.

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.
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.
