There are currently three platforms in use at Filisur station.

Filisur is located very close to three of the Rhaetian Railway's major railway bridges.

Shortly before trains on the Albula Railway arrive in Filisur from the direction of Chur, Thusis and Tiefencastel, they pass over both the Schmittentobel Viaduct and the Landwasser Viaduct, the latter of which is one of the signature structures of the Albula Railway.

On the Davos to Filisur line, trains from Davos similarly cross the Wiesen Viaduct just before entering Filisur.
