Bergün-Bravuogn

It's a typical Engadin agglomeration. The Platzturm, originally a farm tower (12th century), overlooks the roofs of the village with its 17th century baroque dome.

Bergün is a typical village in Canton Graubünden at 1,373 m above sea level. The houses are lined up on both sides of the Dorfstrasse, the windows and sgraffiti facades are facing the street, where traffic, trade and communication take place. The mountain village is located on the famous UNESCO World Heritage Site RhB Albula-Berninaline, which offers an unforgettable experience with spectacular viaducts and loop tunnels. Railway fans can also find out more about the history of the Rhaetian Railway in the Albula Railway Museum. Findings from the Bronze Age, a cupstone at Crap Alv and various other findings suggest that Bergün and the pass pass have been settled and used since ancient times. One of the first dates we have information about is 1188, the year the village church was built. The square tower "La tuor" dominates the village. Little is known about the construction of the Roman tower. Built as an escape and defence tower, it was even turned into a prison when the railway was built. In 1323 it burned with the whole village up to the walls. Not to be missed in winter are the famous toboggan runs, which descend a good 400 metres from Preda to Bergün and offer an incredible view of the snow-covered mountains and surrounding villages.
