Arosa Line

During some of our tours we take a fantastic journey on the beautifully scenic Arosa Line. The rail service is operated by Rhätische Bahn, and the train departs from Chur. On leaving the town - which is the oldest settlement in Switzerland, the Arosa Line passes close by many of its oldest landmarks, such as the Obertor town gate and the famous Maltese Tower. This stretch of the track is relatively flat, but the line begins to ascend steeply shortly after reaching open countryside; the railway overcomes a height difference of 3,280ft between Chur and Arosa.

As the train continues its ascent, the landscape becomes steadily more wild and dramatic. The track runs through verdant mountain pastures and slopes lined with thick pine forests. Soon the line passes over the distinctive Langweiser Viaduct as it spans a wide gorge. Our journey then continues through the rocky scenery of the Graubunden canton as we climb further. At this stage, the railway makes use of a series of short tunnels and graceful curves to overcome the rugged terrain. Finally the ground begins to even out as we make our approach to Arosa, skirting the crystal-clear waters of Lake Obersee. We then arrive in this charming town, which is a popular year-round holiday destination.

“The Glacier Express package was a great holiday. Our Tour Manager, John Grimwade, made sure that we caught the right train at the right time and sat in the right seats! The mountain scenery from the Glacier and Bernina Express trains was wonderful, and viewing the world from the snowy peaks (accessed via funiculars and cable cars) was exhilarating. The hotels were very warm and comfortable with good food and friendly staff. My only suggestion would be to shorten the day on which we took the Glacier Express, as the trip back to the hotel after the Express ride, though interesting, was very long and tiring. All in all an enjoyable trip.

“This would have been 5 stars but for the following. 1.Disappointment being changed from Strasbourg to Mulhouse. Mulhouse was attractive and the hotel very good but the journey was too long,we arrived too late to see anything and had to leave next morning just as the market was opening. 2. The group was 34 in number(much too big),our guide was very good but many struggled to keep up. 3. Tiefencastel, The hotel was clean,very warm and comfortable,but a bit stingy on the bathroom products(one small sachet of body wash each) and packed lunches (considering one day was Christmas Day).And all inclusive is perhaps a description that stretches a point! It”s only at tiefencastel and that is limited to while you are eating. 4. Communication is sometimes muddled by receiving some messages from Great Rail, a sister company 5,We paid for our luggage to be transported to Tiefencastel,but a week before departure were notified that the company (Sherpr) knew nothing about it .RD has reimbursed our money.Luggage on trains can be problematic. 6.Otherwise,brilliant holiday. Christmas day,snow,good company,treasured memories……..
