Bergün / Bravuogn
The unspoilt alpine village of Bergün lies at the foot of the Albula Pass at the gateway to the Engadine. You do not have to be a railway historian to be amazed by the Albula railway line, which is still maintained in its entirety in almost its original condition, 100 years after its construction. In winter, the resort of Bergün is a mecca for sledgers.
Bergün (1376 m) – the location in the 1990s for the filming of the TV series "The Director" had already been in the spotlight before, in 1952, when the first Heidi film was filmed in the nearby village of Latsch. The heart of the village, with its picturesque Engadine houses – lavishly decorated with sgraffito, frescoes and oriel windows – an 800 year old Romanesque church and a Roman tower, is amazingly unchanged.
Bergün also has a traditional skiing area. Two chair-lifts and a T-bar lift take skiers and snowboarders up to Darlux at 2552 m. There are two ski lifts near the village that are ideal for beginners and families. Snow-shoe walkers are also catered for here. Freestylers can enjoy themselves in the varied Snowhill Park. Cross-country ski tracks, winter walks, curling pitches and an ice-rink all promise lots of winter sports fun.
The swimming pool with a spacious lawn, 50m and children's pools, water slide and diving board is sure to be wonderfully refreshing.
