Ela Hole

In the middle of the wing of the Piz Ela (3339 m above sea level.M.), in the south-eastern ridge, there is a 2.5 m high and 6 m wide hole – the Ela Hole. In February and October, a unique natural spectacle takes place here, when the sun casts its rays through the hole into the valley.


According to legend, a cheeky young man once infuriated the devil so much that he furiously threw a boulder at him. He narrowly missed the youngster and the chunk hit a big hole in the ridge at Piz Ela. Since then, every year, when the sun shines through it, people are admonished in awe. Thanks to the young man, this natural spectacle can be observed every year on 25 and 26 February and on 15 and 16 October in some places in the municipality of Bergün/Bravuogn. Good observation sites are the local museum and the school house. For observation, it is recommended to wear sunglasses.
