    Thusis-Tiefencastel 20km 6 hours | +925m -770m

    Tiefencastel–Filisur–Bergün 21km 6 hours | +1,035m -530 m

    The second section leads to one of the highlights of the Via Albula/Bernina, the impressive Landwasser viaduct. Prior to this it runs alongside the foaming Albula river and then on the «Wasserweg ansaina» to a scenic spot for a souvenir photo of the world-famous RhB Rhaetian Railway viaduct. You then continue past Filisur with its historic village centre. Passing the tanzenden Hexen von Bellaluna (dancing witches of Bellaluna) the trail leads up to the well-kept, historic railway station at Stugl. Finishing point at Bergün with its Engadin houses, a mecca for railway enthusiasts.

    Bergün–Preda–Albulapass–Spinas | by train: Spinas–St. Moritz approx. 18km 6 hours | +1,320m -880m

    Hike through a true masterpiece of engineering. The mountain hike follows the banks of the Albula river and several time crosses the railway line, which along this stretch features the boldest of railway routes. The Bahnerlebnisweg (Railway experience trail) illustrates this 100-year-old railway engineering feat. Past Preda, the mountain hike leads past the crystal-clear Palpuognasee lake, over Weissenstein Alp or Crap Alv up to the Fuorcla Crap Alv (2466 m altitude) and steeply down into Val Bever to the idyllic stage destination of Spinas.
