Just arriving here by train is an adventure in itself as you cross the 90 metre-high Solis and Landwasser viaducts and travel through the twisting tunnels of the Albula valley. Then, in Preda, even wilder curves await the intrepid tobogganer! The winding run finishes 6 kilometres later in Bergün after dropping 400 metres in altitude. Here, the Rhaetian Railway will be waiting to take those who want even more of the same back to Preda.
