Railway: “Rail cruises” in Switzerland

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Just get in and don't miss anything. On the rail cruise you can enjoy the most popular highlights, but also lesser-known pearls of Switzerland's largest holiday canton.

On the Alpine Cruise, the Rhaetian Railway takes its passengers past the most beautiful and extraordinary places in Graubünden to Tirano, Italy. The route of the optional four, five or eight day trip is just as much the destination as the destinations that can be discovered along the Arosa Line, the Albula Line and the Bernina Line. The Rhaetian Railway trains cross unique viaducts on their journey and the large panoramic windows of the Bernina Express provide an incomparable view of the Swiss Alps.

The journey through Chur begins leisurely. But the stroll through the city on rails will soon be over: now the red train will become a mountain railway. After countless curves, Arosa welcomes you with fresh mountain air, sun and a pinch of humor.

From Thusis, the Rhaetian Railway climbs through spiral tunnels and viaducts up the Albula Valley towards St. Moritz. The line, harmoniously embedded in the landscape, is a showpiece from the era of the railway pioneers and is part of the RhB UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Bernina line between St. Moritz, Valposchiavo and Tirano impressively connects the north and south of Europe. It leads past mountains, lakes and glaciers down to the palm trees in Valtellina. The famous panoramic route is part of the RhB UNESCO World Heritage Site - a trademark for rail lovers from all over the world.

The Alpine Cruise offers the luxury of deciding whether the “rail cruiser” wants to relax or be active. The four, five or eight day trip includes overnight stays in the three well-known holiday resorts of Chur, Davos and St. Moritz - with unforgettable panoramic trips between the regions.

In addition to train tickets for travel by public transport, the flat rate also includes luggage transport to the next hotel. This is how to travel comfortably!
