We are delighted that we will soon be able to welcome you to the Engadin. To smooth your journey here, we have put together a few pieces of important information for you. Have a good journey – we look forward to seeing you!
Our mountain passes …
… promise a sensational motoring experience. Even people who have lived in the Engadin for years enjoy a thrill every time they drive over the Ofen Pass, Julier Pass or Maloja Pass (open year-round) or the Albula Pass or Flüela Pass (closed in winter). But as you enjoy the glorious views, do remember to pay careful attention to the road and other users.
In heavy snow, only vehicles with four-wheel drive or equipped with chains are permitted on the pass roads.
The Vereina car transporter service …
… saves you a drive over a mountain pass. Simply drive your car onto the shuttle train and stay in your vehicle for the 18-minute ride through the Vereina tunnel. Services depart up to every 30 minutes between the Prättigau valley (Selfranga) and the Engadin (Sagliains).

A journey with Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) is an adventure in itself, promising a delightful first holiday experience even before you have reached your resort. And since your route takes you to the magnificent Engadin, you have an additional treat in store: a ride on the region’s Rhaetian Railway (RhB), one of the most spectacular pieces of railway engineering in the world with one of the most picturesque of all routes. No wonder UNESCO added the RhB’s Albula/Bernina line to its list of World Heritage Sites in 2008, declaring it of “universal outstanding“ importance.
You can travel into the Engadin along this line from either direction: from Chur through the Albula tunnel, or from Tirano in Italy over the Bernina Pass. You can also reach us here in the Engadin via the RhB line from Landquart through the Vereina tunnel.
Set off from Zurich main station, for example, and you could be breathing the pure Engadin mountain air in just 3 hours.
