Description

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

Every hour on the hour you will have the opportunity to photograph the Rhaetian Railway as it travels over 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 again on the same path.
