St. Moritz is a railway station in St. Moritz, Switzerland. It is the southern terminus of the Albula Railway line from Chur. Hourly services operate on this section of the line. There is also an hourly service on the Bernina Railway line from St. Moritz to Tirano, Italy. There are currently five platforms in use at this station.
The station serves as a terminus for local bus and Postbus services. St Moritz is a terminus not just for the Albula Railway but also for the Bernina Railway. Because these two companies 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 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.
