Sehenswürdigkeit Bergün/Bravuogn


In the middle of the wing of Piz Ela (3339 m above sea level), in the southeast ridge, there is a 2.5 m high and 6 m wide hole – the Ela hole. In February and October, a unique natural spectacle takes place here, when the sun casts its rays through the hole in the valley.


According to legend, a cheeky young man once enraged the devil so much that he angrily threw a boulder at him. He narrowly missed the youngster and the chunk hit a big hole in the ridge at Piz Ela. Since then, every year when the sun shines through there, people have been admonished to awe. Thanks to the young man, this natural spectacle can be observed annually on 25 and 26 February as well as on 15 and 16 October in some places in the municipality of Bergün/Bravuogn. Good observation sites are the local museum and the schoolhouse. For observation, it is recommended to wear sunglasses.
