Formerly a place where horses were changed and spent the night. After the completion of the Albula Railway, they were looking forward to competing for St. Moritz and built a magnificent spa hotel. But the tourists stayed away and so Bergün was spared by real estate speculation and today is largely authentically preserved.
Between Bergün and Preda lies the most astonishing section of the railway line to St. Moritz: After leaving Bergün, you can still see the village three times, but from an ever-increasing height. In the mountain, the train goes up in a spiral tunnel. In Preda, you walk on the beautiful railway adventure trail back to Bergün and learn a lot about the difficult construction of this section.

Whimsical: since 30.5.17 in Bergün is a "hearty photographing ban" or you pay 5 CHF. One does not want to make people unhappy, to see the pictures of Bergün in the net and not be able to be here themselves. Will this "shortage" really bring more tourists to Bergün?
