In 2008, the World Heritage Committee of UNESCO included the Albula and Bernina section of the Rhaetian railway in its list of World Heritage sites. With this accolade the Rhaetian railway became the third railway lineto be deemed "universally outstanding". Enjoy a trip on the line steeped in history, through the fabulous high mountain landscape of Grisons.
The Albula and Bernina section between Thusis and Tirano is a superb example of the development of the high alpine landscape. The line is one of the most spectacular narrow gauge railways in the world. The Albula line was completed in 1903, the Bernina line in 1910. The Albula line was considered a masterpiece even at the time of construction. The Bernina line is one of the highest alpine crossings in Europe and one of the steepest adhesion railway lines in the world.
