The Julier Pass 2284 m is a mountain pass in Switzerland, in the Albula Range of the Alps. It connects the Engadin valle (Silvaplana) with the rest of Graubünden (Tiefencastel). At its summit, the pass crosses the watershed between the basins of the Rivers Rhine and Danube. Primeval and barren, its tundra-like landscape impresses with its unique form of poetry. The summit is adorned by two distinctive leaning columns, bearing witness to the Romans who travelled this way in bygone days. Today, the Julier Pass is the most important northern access to the Engadin and is open all year round.
