Preda-Bergun Historic Railway Trail (Bahnlehrpfad)

On my recent trip to Graubunden I walked the trail from Preda to Bergun. This is known as The Historic Railway Trail as it follows the spiral tunnels, and bridges through the Albula Gorge. This is part of the Bernina line and is a World Heritage Site.

The route is described in detail here with maps etc.
It is also available on a free iPhone/iPod App.

The route is approximately seven kilometres and basically all down hill. The trail signs describe this as a 90 min. walk. Allow two and a half hours or more as you will find yourself stopping to puzzle the route as the trains pass by several times from different directions. Along the way there are information board (in German) that give more details about the creation of the railway.

The scenery along the Albula is stunning, with the trail crossing back and forth over the river and railway. The area is also part of the Parc Ela Nature Reserve.
