Located in Bergün, right beside the Albula line of the Rhaetian Railway, the new Albula Railway Museum is a must for all railway enthusiasts.
With various display rooms and a wealth of original exhibits including one of the last «Crocodile» locomotives in existence, the museum tells the fascinating story of the most spectacular of all Swiss railway lines – which is now a UNESCO World Heritage site. In all, the extensive collection (covering more than 1,300 sq m) includes more than 400 exhibits from more than 100 years of railway history.
Please note that the museum is closed in November.
Combine a visit to the Albula Railway Museum with a tour of the line itself, by walking the Albula Railway Trail from Preda to Bergün through the UNESCO World Heritage Site. This easy, varied and highly informative walk lasts about 2.5 hours. It follows the spectacular route of the railway line and its towering viaducts, with information panels and barbecue picnic sites along the way.
High thrills on the Albula adventure train: experience the fascinating history of the Rhaetian Railway first-hand by combining a visit to the Albula Railway Museum with a ride on the Albula adventure train. This historic train runs every Sunday between 2. June and 1. September 2013, carrying you to the Albula Railway Trail and back again.
