Through tunnels and over viaducts
Along the famous track to pure excitement on wooden runners: that's what the Preda/Darlux – Bergün sledging adventure holds in store. The train will carry you up to Preda, where the sledging fun can begin on the trail down to Bergün. More adventurous sledgers can take the chairlift to Darlux, from where the hardcore trail descends to Bergün.
The journey there with the Rhaetian Railway is breathtaking in its own right – not least thanks to the legendary layout of the route through helical tunnels and over viaducts in the Albula Valley. From Preda, at 1,800 metres above sea level, the descent can begin – on the closed-off section of pass road, which has just as many curves and bends as the railway itself – but at terrific speed and with far more flurries of snow.
If you fancy something steeper for a change: the «Lauberhorn of sledging runs» from Darlux to Bergün promises just as much sledging fun for those who are brave enough. Darlux can be reached easily by chairlift.
The sledging world of Preda/Darlux - Bergün is a world of fun for people of all ages.
Guests have not one but two sledging runs to choose from. From Preda to Bergün there’s a six-kilometre descent to the closed-off pass road below. A chairlift conveys more adventurous sledgers to Darlux, from where the hardcore trail descends four kilometres to Bergün.
The Albula and Bernina section of track is a masterpiece in terms of civil engineering and routing. Landscape and railway blend into one: in wide radiuses, ingenious man-made structures punctuate rugged valleys. The Landwasser Viaduct, the helical tunnels between Bergün and Preda and the Brusio Circular Viaduct all stand testimony to the early, pioneering days of the railway.
The sledging run from Preda to Bergün is not just an adventure by day, but even more so at night when the trail is lit up.
The Albula Railway Museum in Bergün takes railway fans on a journey into the past. A simulator lets visitors drive the legendary Crocodile locomotive along the Albula Line themselves. Railway enthusiasts and families will be fascinated by the old stamps, films and models.
Houses in the traditional Engadine style dating back to the 16th and 18th century line the main street of Bergün. Typical features such as sgraffito, bay windows and window gratings lend the village a special charm. The Kurhaus is over 100 years' old – the spa hotel was built around 1903, at the same time as the railway line.

In the winter of 2019/20, the fantastic, first Schneeschloss in Switzerland welcomed guests directly at the side of the sledging run from Preda to Bergün. Daredevil sledgers stoked up on an exquisite Bergün fondue and warmed themselves up with mulled wine and punch right at the side of the track.
Due to the current Covid-19 measures, we will not be operating the hospitality location or building the Schneeschloss in the winter of 2020/21.
In the winter of 2021/2022, sledgers will once again be able to enjoy culinary delights at the edge of the piste in the unique Schneeschloss with a railway connection.
