The Val Gardena Railway trail - La ferata de Gherdëina

Roncadizza/Runggaditsch - Castelrotto/Kastelruth, Urtijëi/Ortisei, Dolomites Region Val Gardena
from center

Val Gardena Railway was constructed long time ago, when the region was part of the Austrian-Hungarian Monarchy. In its 44 years during which it was operating, it strongly influenced the valley and brought many tourists to it, above all in the last years. The railway was running from 1916 to 1960 and was completed in record time. In fact, construction was started in September 1915 and in February 1916 the railway was officially inaugurated. 6.000 Russian soldiers who were prisoners during the World War did this great work.

On the comfortable way with panoramic view from S. Cristina to Roncadizza, you will find several information boards with historical pictures, which explain the Val Gardena Railway history.
