Graubünden travel tips

Read about traveling by car and public transport in Graubünden.

The Rhaetian Railway

Graubünden has its own railway company: the Rhaetian Railway (RhB). The excellent narrow-gauge rail network stretches out to most corners of Graubünden. We find the red trains of the RhB a pleasure to travel with.

The flagship of the RhB is the Bernina Express from Chur to Tirano.

In addition to the trains, there are buses and cable cars which go where trains don't.

Traveling by car

Because of the excellent public transport, a car is not a necessity to explore Graubünden.

If you plan to drive in winter, note that many passes will be closed and you will have to use a car train to cross the mountain range between the Engadine and the north of Graubünden, and also to enter Graubünden from the west (Oberalp Pass). Also, some main roads in the higher valleys may be covered with snow, so your vehicle and driving skills need to be up to those conditions.

Train passes

Besides the nation wide rail passes, there is a graubündenPASS. It is worth to look into that pass if you plan to stay in Graubünden only.
