Henny BoumanThe country water viaduct is from all sides. Filisur station there is a walkway which leads above the viaduct. You look here above on Land water viaduct. From the parking lot along the way to the toilet there is a steep Country Albulastrasse path to a plateau which is specially built for photographers, this is a tough climb. You have an excellent view over the viaduct. Also there is a path along the Land water when under the country water viaduct.show original
