Rhaetian Railway in the Albula / Bernina Landscapes

Railway Adventure Trail Albula

The "Railway Adventure Trail Albula" leads from Preda via Bergün to Filisur and on to the Landwasser Viaduct and is laid out parallel to the railway line. The perfect interplay of landscape and technology can thus be experienced on one's own feet. Information boards along the three hiking stages inform about the world of railways, technology, culture and everyday life of the Rhaetian Railway - and the people in the Albula Valley.
