The journey with the Rhaetian Railway (RhB) from Chur is one of the most scenic and interesting train routes in Europe with its loop tunnels and dizzying viaducts. In 2008, the Rhaetian Railway Albula and Bernina lines became UNESCO World Heritage sites. Online timetable at www.sbb.ch.
You can easily reach the Engadine by car from any part of Switzerland or from Italy, Germany or Austria:
