Long Description:
EN: "The Reformed Church in Bergün/Bravuogn in Grisons is a Evangelical-Reformed church that is protected as a cantonal historical site. The building is located on the southeastern edge of the village towards Albula Pass.

The church was built in 1188. Still in the Pre-Reformation period, around 1500, the choir has been renewed, revised, and the nave of the Romanesque bell tower was equipped with a new helmet on gables.

The Bergün church has inside a richly ornamented wood ceiling with carving, passing through the entire nave. The famous late Gothic frescoe cycle is an Italian wall painting from the period of the early Renaissance, amongst others with images of the Passion of Jesus Christ.

The pulpit provided with a sounding board and the gallery that is only accessible from outside are from the first half of the 18th Century. The organ is more recent and was built in 1979th

In the center of the church at the entrance to the choir is the baptismal font, which is also used as a communion table according to the Grisons Reformed tradition." (translated fromWikipedia)


DE: "Die Reformierte Kirche in Bergün/Bravuogn in Graubünden ist ein evangelisch-reformiertes Gotteshaus unter kantonalem Denkmalschutz. Das Gebäude steht am südöstlichen Dorfausgang Richtung Albulapass.

Die Kirche wurde 1188 errichtet. Noch in vorreformatorischer Zeit wurden ca. 1500 der Chor erneuert, das Kirchenschiff neu gefasst und der romanische Kirchturm mit einem neuen Helm über Wimpergen versehen.

Die Bergüner Kirche weist im Inneren eine durch Schnitzkunst reichverzierte, das gesamte Schiff durchziehende Holzdecke auf. Der berühmte spätgotische Freskenzyklus ist eine italienische Wandmalerei aus der Zeit der Frührenaissance, u.a. mit Motiven zur Passion Jesu Christi.

Die mit Schalldeckel versehene Kanzel und die nur von aussen zugängliche Empore stammen aus der ersten Hälfte des 18. Jahrhunderts. Die Orgel ist jüngeren Datums und wurde 1979 eingebaut.

Zentral in der Kirche eingangs des Chores befindet sich der Taufstein, der nach reformiertem Bündner Brauch auch als Abendmahlstisch fungiert." (Wikipedia)
