In terms of solving structural- engineering problems and the harmony between their encroachment and nature, the Albula/Bernina railway line is a masterpiece from railway pioneering days. The first part of the hike leads along the Albula line from Thusis, north of the Alps, through the Albulatal valley via the Fuorcla Crap Alv into Val Bever and through the unique Upper Engadin high plateau to St. Moritz. The southern four sections continue over the Berninapass into Val Poschiavo and finally reach Tirano in the Italian Veltlin.

Making the journey on foot through one of the most varied natural and cultural landscapes between high Alpine, Alpine and sub-tropical zones, continually accompanied by the Albula and Bernina railway, is one of the most wonderful of all hiking experiences. The UNESCO structures, such as bridges, viaducts (helical) tunnels and stations set in wild natural Alpine surroundings can best be discovered on this hike in total harmony with nature. Three language regions, numerous landscape gems and places with special character round off this hiking experience.

A long-distance hike for everyone, as it constantly crosses the route of the Rhaetian Railway, providing the assurance of being able to climb aboard at any time and thus arrange and adapt the one-day stages to suit individual fitness levels and interests.
