Landwasser Viaduct (GR)
One of the most famous landmarks of the Rhaetian Railway is the Landwasser Viaduct. The railway bridge is 65 m high, 135 m long and is part of the Albula Railway, which has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2008. An exit in Filisur and a leisurely walk to the Landwasser Viaduct are definitely recommended.
Accessibility: There is an hourly train from Chur towards St. Moritz, which runs over the Landwasser Viaduct. In just over an hour you are in Filisur. More connections to St. Moritz and back to Chur are waiting for you every hour.
You can also get to the Landwasser Viaduct by car. The road from Chur up towards St. Moritz is winding and sometimes steep.
There is a free car park where you can leave your car for a short time to get to the Landwasser Viaduct. By the way, camping is forbidden.
Equipment: A wide gravel road leads from the parking lot to the foot of the Landwasser Viaduct. Sneakers are sufficient for this. For the other paths, I would recommend that you put on hiking shoes, as the path can be a bit wet and slippery in places.
Hike: From the Filisur train station you can reach the viewing platforms in about 20-40 minutes, which offer a good vantage point and photo spot.
The way to the viewing platform south leads along a road and a wide hiking trail, there are no steps and it takes about 20 minutes. It is also suitable for strollers
The photo you see was taken at the foot of the viaduct. A hiking trail (not suitable for prams) leads from the south viewing platform to the river. The viaduct rises up in front of you. The viaduct was built almost 120 years ago!
The highlight: when one of the distinctive red trains of the Rhaetian Railway passes the bridge. Then set the serial function of your camera =)
The north viewing platform can be reached in about 50 minutes from Filisur train station. There are stairs and some steeper places.
Meals: At the foot of the Landwasser Viaduct there are barbecue areas, tables, benches and toilets. A snack bar, which is open in summer, is also available.
Landwasser Express: A small "train" or also known as the Landwasser Express runs 3 times a day from early summer at the Filisur train station to the Landwasser Viaduct and back. For 15 francs per adult or 7 francs per child, you will be taken back and forth.
