Rhaetian Railway in the Albula / Bernina Landscapes

Stage 5: Via Albula/Bernina, Preda - Spinas

   Stage 5 of: Via Albula/Bernina

The unique long-distance hiking trail Via Albula/Bernina runs along the UNESCO World Heritage RhB line. In 10 stages, it covers 131 kilometres on foot from Thusis to Tirano through three language and cultural regions. Sights such as the spectacular Landwasser Viaduct near Filisur, the helical tunnels between Bergün and Preda, old railway stations and the circular viaduct in Brusio can be admired at close quarters. The varied Alpine landscape is a special feast for the eyes.

Stage 4
This stage leads from Preda over the Albula Pass to the southern tunnel portal in the Engadine. Past the crystal-clear Palpuogna lake, the mountain hike leads over Alp Weissenstein or Crap Alv and on to Fuorcla Crap Alv (2,466 m above sea level). Afterwards, the trail descends steeply into the wild and romantic Val Bever with Spinas as its destination.


Medium (T2) mountain hike (partly with alpine character) on marked driving and well-maintained, partly narrow, stony and steep hiking trails, especially descent from Fuorcla Crap Alv into Val Bever requires surefootedness.
