Via Albula #02 – Tiefencastel to Bergün
This Section can be done in two parts, from Tiefencastel to Filisur and then to Bergün. The first part is a nice easy hike in which you walk along the Albula river to Filisur. Just before you reach Filisur you walk right past one of the highlights of the Via Albula, the Landwasser Viaduct. A 65m high and 136m long bridge for the Rhaetian Railway. This Bridge was built between 1901 and 1902 and is one of the Albula Railway that goes from Chur to St. Moritz.
The second part from Filisur you continue your walk along the Albula River until you reach Bellaluna (a Restaurant), shortly after that you have a bit of an accent to reach the historic train station Stugl. In Bergün you can visit the Trainmuseum or just enjoy the village.
So the hike itself was fairly easy if you have a normal physical condition. That said, the part from Bellaluna to Bergüm, can be difficult. Some sections the path gets really narrow and to your side it goes a long way down. If you slip then well I didn’t like to think about to end as a number in the yearly statistics. It’s not the whole section just about 100m in total but apart from that great hiking trail.
