Description

The short hike leads from Filisur station along a section of the road to the second railway underpass. Then the path follows the railway line and through the forest to the viewing platform above the land water viaduct. From there you can enjoy a great view of the building. In addition, panels inform about the construction of the viaduct, which is considered the landmark of the UNESCO World Heritage "Rhaetian Railway in the Albula/Bernina Landscape". The construction of the three main pillars of the viaduct 1901/1902 was an architectural feat, because they were built without scaffolding with two cranes.

At every hour, you have the opportunity to photograph the Rhaetian Railway when it crosses the 142 m long and 65 m high bridge and disappears into the tunnel in the vertical rock face or emerges from it. The way back to Filisur is the same way again.
