Brigels: Skigebiet - Waltensburg Andiast - Bergstation Fil

The holiday resort of Brigels is nestled high above the Vorderrhein, on the sunny side of the Surselva. The rather narrow mountain road from Tavanasa ascending to Brigels is not conducive to mass tourism, therefore, the picturesque village is quiet and serene.
