The Val Gardena Railway was constructed when the region was part of the Austrian-Hungarian Monarchy. The railway was running from 1916 to 1960 and was completed in record time. On this comfortable way with panoramic view, you will find several information boards with historical pictures, which explain the Val Gardena Railway history. This path was created to never forget one of the most important chapters of Val Gardena's history and to tell its fascinating railway story.
