Bridge Viamala

Wildener Brücke

Wildener Brücke
Both the Roman Way and the later main route of 1472 once led in the center of the Viamala Gorge on the west side through the narrowest section of the gorge.

Description

It was not until the construction of roads from 1729 to 1739 that the dangerous spot could be bypassed. But this required two bridges: the Wilden Bridges, named after the Davos master builder Christian Wildener. While only remnants of the northern bridge can be seen today, the southern one, whether the Viamal Visitor Centre, had to endure all the traffic that went through the Viamala until 1935. Since then, traffic has been routed across the bridge by Luigi Premoli. The Zillis master builder thus made his contribution to the preservation of the southern Wilden Bridge. However, he had completely replaced the northern one in 1938 due to the limited space.
