With 39 tunnels, 55 bridges and a difference in altitude of 1123 metres, the Albula line of the Rhaetian Railway between Thusis and St. Moritz is a masterpiece of railway engineering. It was opened in 1903 after having been under construction for 5 years. The section between Preda and Bergün is one of the most spectacular stretches in the world and is a prime example of how the high alpine landscape was opened up.
