The albula line between Tiefencastel and Tirano is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is worth a trip, even in winter5 across the Alps.
Historic steam train ride on the Albula Line.
From Thusis, the RhB climbs through spiral tunnels and over viaducts up the Albula valley towards St. Moritz. The line, which is harmoniously embedded in the landscape, is a showpiece from the time of the railway pioneers and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Even today, the 62 kilometer long Albula Line is considered a masterpiece in terms of rail technology and route management. In 1903 the RhB opened the spectacular route between Thusis and St. Moritz after only five years of construction. The red cable car climbs over 1,000 meters in altitude – thanks to the Solis Viaduct, Landwasser Viaduct or the spiral tunnels between Bergün and Preda without a gearwheel.
Off the rails, you can hike through the intact mountains in the Ela nature park, on which Bahnerlebnisweg Albula or visit that Bahnmuseum Albula in Bergün. In winter you curve on the toboggan run from Preda to Bergün.
