The Albula Railway Museum in Bergün guides railway enthusiasts and families through the railway history of Graubünden. 600 exhibits from more than 100 years of railway history bear witness to pioneering deeds in Graubünden, to the people who shaped the railway - and landscapes that were shaped by it. Discarded station clocks, historical documents or plans for the construction of the engineering structures show the history and significance of the spectacular UNESCO World Heritage route between Thusis and Tirano.
In the Büfèt Railway Museum Albula, you can relax in the original seating furniture of various dining and saloon cars. A wide selection of coffees, assorted teas, freshly prepared meals and homemade cakes are served. Enjoy it all according to the motto: travel, drink and dine.

St. Moritz is considered the birthplace of the Alpine holidays and is known throughout the world as a beautiful Alpine metropolis.

This leaves enough time to warm up or cool down, depending on the season, with a coffee or tea in a restaurant before returning to the lower part of Graubünden by Rhaetian Railway.
Tip for chilly winter days: If there is black ice on Lago Bianco, this is another highlight to visit!
