    Today you can expect a breathtaking ride through a unique mountain world. Between the lush green of the steep meadows and forests, the Rhaetian Railway winds its way through the landscape with its bright red wagons. She accompanies you throughout the day. And because of the many vertical meters you will sometimes look a little jealous of the train.And of course you can also get on the train and cross a few meters, for example to Preda or Spinas. Then you do not experience the Albula Pass, but you roll down the wild and romantic Bevertal to the Engadin.Back to the bike course: You start in Bergün / Bravuogn and it goes first on 14 kilometers about 1,000 meters uphill. The impressive scenery around you makes you forget the effort. On about two-thirds of the ascent, shortly after Preda, you reach one of the most beautiful spots in Switzerland, the blue-green shimmering Palpuogna Lake. Enjoy the idyllic peace amid larches. Because soon you have crossed the tree line and drive in a barren, inhospitable scree landscape until the climax of your journey, the Albula Pass.On the way you will still pass bunkers. They are impressive testimonies of the Swiss military. Finally you did it. You arrived on the 2,315 meter high Albula Pass. Now you have earned yourself a little refreshment at the Gasthaus Albula Hospiz.Then it goes down the small pass road over several kilometers. And again, you will not be amazed by the unforgettable landscape. After a few hairpin bends you reach the village of La Punt-Chamues-ch and have arrived in the Engadin. In many places, Romansh is still spoken here. From now on you follow the Inn Cycle Path to your destination Zernez. On the way it is particularly worthwhile to leave the Inn Cycle Path in Zuoz and to explore the excellently preserved center of the Engadine village.
