The most beautiful so far. Climbed dozens of mountains by now, but this one is number one in terms of beauty. Every metre is different and some are more beautiful than others. Sometimes you don't know where to look. We too were in the fortunate circumstances that the road was closed to motorised traffic. There was a warning about avalanche danger. Five times we crawled under barriers and even climbed over a pile of snow. All very irresponsible. Admittedly. However, the reward was well worth it. Put this one on your list and enjoy.

De mooiste tot nu toe. Inmiddels tientallen bergen beklommen, maar deze staat qua schoonheid op 1. Elke meter is anders en de enen meter nog mooier dan de andere. Je weet soms niet waar je moet kijken. Ook wij waren in de gelukkige omstandigheden dat de weg voor gemotoriseerd verkeer afgesloten was. Er werd gewaarschuwd voor lawinegevaar. Vijf keer onder slagbomen doorgekropen en zelfs over een berg sneeuw geklommen. Allemaal zeer onverantwoord. Toegegeven. De beloning was het echter meer dan waard. Zet deze op je lijst en geniet.

A wonderful pass on a mostly relatively quiet road. An absolute must for all cycling fans. The Albula Pass is also part of the Alpen Challenge.

Superb, long and steady ascent with a start from Tiefenkastel that allows 10 km of falsopiano and subsequent warm-up. I found the first few kilometres more challenging than the graph suggests. A real mountain pass with spectacular views of the valley below. Fairly heavy traffic in the opposite direction for a car rally. Constant presence of water along the route at every village. Great pity there is NO CARTEL indicating the remaining distance, the gradient. Road signs are also very rare. Why? You could make much better use of such a beautiful climb

Salita superba, lunga e regolare con partenza da Tiefenkastel che permette 10 km di falsopiano e conseguente riscaldamento. Ho trovato impegnativi i primi km più di quanto il grafico faccia pensare. Passo di vera montagna con scorci spettacolari sulla valle sottostante. Traffico abbastanza elevato in senso opposto per un raduno automobilistico . Presenza costante di acqua lungo il percorso ad ogni paesino. Gran peccato non ci sia NESSUN CARTELLO che indichi la distanza rimanente, la pendenza. Anche le indicazioni stradali sono davvero rare. Perché? Si potrebbe valorizzare molto meglio una salita così bella

This one is really quite fun. Great, beautiful surroundings, and even though it's quite long, there's a natural coffee break spot in Bergün. We were lucky that the road up from Preda was closed for motorized traffic. The view at the top is ruined a by the power line, otherwise it would get 5 stars!

Beautiful climb that I started in Surava, near Tiefencastel. The 1st kilometres you can enjoy the surroundings. Just before mountain village Bergün, the real climb starts. Here, the percentages rise sharply, while the views become more and more beautiful. In between, you regularly see the typical Swiss trains pass by, a great sight. In the final kilometres you are occasionally confronted with steep sections, but it never becomes really hard. Unique climb in a beautiful setting.

Prachtige klim die ik startte in Surava, vlakbij Tiefencastel. De 1ste kilometers kan je volop genieten van de omgeving. Vlak voor bergdorp Bergün begint in feite de echte klim. Hier gaan de percentages sterk de lucht op, terwijl de uitzichten steeds fraaier worden. Tussendoor zie je regelmatig de typische Zwitserse treintjes passeren, een geweldig beeld. In de slotkilometers word je af en toe nog geconfronteerd met steile stroken, maar het wordt nooit echt loodzwaar. Unieke beklimming in een oogstrelend decor.

Beautiful climb and very doable. This because there are parts which are fairly flat. Between Filisur and Bergün there is a nice piece where it is firmly climbing. After Bergün where the railway crosses the road also. After Preda and the beautiful lake you can start again. All in all a good and beautiful climb.

Prachtige klim en erg goed te doen. Dit omdat stukken tussen zitten die redelijk vlak zijn. Tussen Filisur en Bergün zit een mooi stuk waarop het stevig klimmen is. Na Bergün waar het spoor de weg kruist eveneens. Na Preda en het mooie meertje kun je ook weer aan de bak. Al met al goed te doen en een prachtige klim.

Schitterende beklimming met afwisselende landschap, goed te doen. Niet heel stijl maar gewoon heel lang. Ik heb er vandaag van genoten, bedankt voor de tip. (;
