Break away. Experiences. Serfaus.
Serfaus over the years
The history of Serfaus stretches back over three millennia. Findings suggest that shepherds or hunters would warm themselves at fire sites there. A silver and copper mine was later built, the tunnels of which are still preserved today. Celts, Romans, Raetians, Bavarians and Walsers: They all settled here and left their traces. These days, it is primarily holidaymakers from near and far, families, sports enthusiasts and nature lovers who keep being drawn to this place, which is unique both culturally and in terms of its landscape
One of the smallest underground train systems in the world
The village came up with a solution for dealing with the increasing traffic: In the 1970s, they decided to close the entire village to private traffic and to use buses to bring visitors to their desired destination. It wasn't long until an even better solution was found to chauffeur visitors comfortably and quickly: The Serfaus village railway was opened in 1985 as an air cushion funicular and, at 1,280 metres, is one of the smallest underground railways in the world.
