  • 13:14-16:47 Tobogganing in the UNESCO World Heritage

 Take the sports railway in Bergün up to Preda before the tobogganing fun begins in the direction of Bergün. From 1800 metres above sea level, it's downhill - on the closed Albula Pass road, around at least as many bends as the railway for about 6 km. But faster and with more snow flurries. The brave take the chairlift to Darlux instead and sledge down the steep slope to Bergün. 

More information on sledging in the UNESCO World Heritage can be found here.

  • 16:47 - 17:31 Return journey on the UNESCO World Heritage route: Bergün - Thusis.
