Rhaetian Railway (RhB) Administration Building

Verwaltungsgebäude Rhätische Bahn
Administration building of the Rhaetian Railway, the "little red one" with UNESCO award


Large and grey, yet friendly - that sums up the building constructed by St. Moritz architect Nicolaus Hartmann between 1907 und 1910. While its grey, starkly structured façades give the building a majestic appearance, thanks to its large forecourt it is not overpowering. The architecture is an expression of the so-called "Bündner Heimatstil", a movement that took up and developed the traditional style of building of the region. The prestigious yet agreeable administration building is regarded as one of the movement's most significant works.
