    You have decided in Thusis for the trip to the beautiful Engadine. The plateau of the Bündner Inn valley lies at around 1700 meters altitude, which is why you already mastered some meters in altitude right at the beginning. The first bit is a bit exhausting and there is no bicycle lane on the road through the narrow Albula Valley. If you do not like it that way, you can easily cross the stretch by train, for example from Thusis to Tiefencastel.From Tiefencastel the trail leads you steadily uphill. Soon you leave the road and cycle on a good mobile gravel road through the narrow, wild romantic valley. Filisur is the next bigger town along your way. Here you can fortify yourself for the last eight kilometers. If you want to see something very special, then make a short detour into the Landwasser Gorge in Filisur. There, the world-famous Landwasser Viaduct has been spanning the deep ravine for some 120 years in a curve that leads directly into a tunnel. The UNESCO World Heritage Site is an impressive motif.Continue up through the Albula Valley. Shortly before your waypoint, the path becomes a bit steep again. But the ride on the road, which was built adventurously between the rocks, is a great experience. The stage ends in Bergün / Bravuogn. The pretty village is full of typical Engadine houses whose facades are decorated with elaborate sgraffito. But beware: The whole place is prohibited from taking photos. Anyone who violates this must reckon with five francs fine. But the rule is not strictly executed. Interesting - not only for railway fans and traffic engineers - is the Railway Museum about the history of the Rhaetian Railway and the associated economic boom of the Albula Valley.
