Lean back and enjoy

With its unique mountain sections, the UNESCO World Heritage line Albula/Bernina and famous classics such as the Glacier and Bernina Express, the Rhaetian railway has stood for first class experiences by rail for over 120 years, right through the heart of trilingual Grisons. And regardless of which trip you choose to take, one thing always stays the same: The Rhaetian railway unites the beauty of the landscape, the power of technology and the pioneering spirit of the past century.

An ideal day trip: Bernina Express

This spectacular journey takes you across the Bernina pass (2,253 metres a.s.l.), through the romantic wilderness of Alpine valleys, past glaciers and mountain peaks, through Puschlav and all the way to Tirano in Italy.

It’s no longer necessary to forge new paths across the Alps, as the most stunning Alpine crossing has already been built: the Albula and Bernina sections of the Rhaetian Railway. They unite northern and southern Europe in a uniquely captivating way – with the Bernina Express. The route from Thusis to Tirano was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2008. This train journey is an ideal day trip from Davos Klosters.


Glacier Express: Slowest express train in the world

A panoramic journey through the high Alps in the heart of Switzerland - it doesn't get more stunning than this. A 7.5 hour journey by rail over 291 bridges, through 91 tunnels and over the 2033 m high Oberalppass to Zermatt.

With this locomotive classic you gain access to the most stunning travel routes between Davos, St. Moritz and Zermatt. A comfortable train runs through an area of pure nature with fragrant, ancient mountain forests, peaceful alpine pastures, rushing mountain streams, through richly traditional mountain valleys with centuries of culture. 

The "slowest fast train in the world" presents a cross-section of the diversity of Switzerland and is a piece of true traveller's pleasure. On the Glacier Express, dishes are freshly prepared for guests by the chef in the restaurant carriage. Coffee, beverages and snacks are brought by the rail bar directly to passengers in their seats. The Glacier Express is the perfect choice in every season. It is mandatory to reserve seats on all trains and this is possible in every railway station and travel agency in Switzerland.
