PREDA BERGÜN

PREDA BERGUN THE FAMOUS TOBOGGAN TRACK OF THE ALBULA PASS

 

Directly from St. Moritz or Thusis is possible to reach the small village of Preda and the famous toboggan track of full excitement on wooden sledges. 

After a short train ride on the UNESCO train to Preda, you can start the 6km sledging track to the charming town of Bergün

 

 

So, all you have to do it to take the train in the direction of Albula-Chur and get off at Preda. If you have reserved the sledges, when you purchased the ticket, you will be able to collect them at the little wooden hut in front to the train stop at Preda by showing them your id card.

After aprox 5 mins on foot, you’ll see the beginning of the run which descends on a slope of 6 km reaching Bergun.

 

 

The slope is lit up every night except Monday. It’s easy, so it is quite doable even for kids (helmet advisable).

In case, you want to do the run a second time or return to St. Moritz, you will have to walk through Bergun (very pretty) to get back to the train station. You will be able to give back your sledge if you have rented it, in one of the member shops.

 

Otherwise, if you want to try the faster run, once you have finished the first slope, take the seat lift which you will find on the right of the arrival and go up to Darlux. From here, you can expect a mind-blowing run not appropriate for kids, if not accompanied.
