Location within Switzerland
Hourly services operate on both the Albula and Bernina lines. Because these two lines operate with different types and levels of power supply, St Moritz is also a "Power supply switch" station (Systemwechselbahnhof).
The station is located at a height of 1,775 m (5,823 ft) above sea level and is the highest urban railway station in Switzerland.
The station came into operation in 1904. At this time St Moritz had already had its own electric tram service, Strassenbahn St. Moritz, since 1896 and there were plans to build a branch line to link the tram service to the new station. For financial reasons the short linking branch line was never built, however.
