Welcome to Bergün!
Our small but beautiful village is situated in the heart of the Grisons, in the middle of the „Parc Ela“, the largest nature park in Switzerland. In summer enjoy countless hiking tours and mountain passes, past beautiful mountain lakes like the Lai da Palpuogna which was selected in the year 2008 as the most beautiful spot in Switzerland. In winter real fun begins! After an impressive train ride on the World Heritage UNESCO line of the Rhaetian Railway to Preda, 5 km of sledging on the famous sledge ride Preda-Bergün start!
Welcome to Filisur!
The clean environment and the easy accessibility by train or car is our greatest asset. Use the junction of the Rhaetian Railway as a starting point to do wonderful train excursions. Filisur is located in Switzerland’s largest nature park « Parc Ela » and is the national inventory of cultural goods. Due to the new bypass a stay at the historic village core turns out to be an experience of a special kind.

You have already travelled along 2/5 of the Irontrail route with us, so it is about time we dealt with equipment because we have prepared a few specifications. I'm packing ... in my rucksack.
You haven't yet worked up the courage to tackle the Irontrail, but no way do you want to miss out on the spectacle? Thenregister as a volunteer on our website and experience the race at close quarters.
There are things people do simply because they enjoy helping others.
