Geological trail through the Zügen gorge

An insight into the geological development in the Zügen gorge, between Davos-Monstein and the "Bärentritt". Old valley road closed to motorcar traffic, set in cool shade due to the narrow, deep valley cutting. Above us, the Rhaetian Railway, which negotiates the gorge across viaducts and through tunnels. Carries on towards Wiesen, then continues on the nature trail to Filisur.

People who are familiar with stones and rock formations will walk through the mountains as if they were reading a book on geology.

Beverin Nature Park

The 2998-meter Piz Beverin, located in the middle of Beverin Nature Park, dominates the park’s scenery. Majestic, serene, frugal, persevering and peaceful – these are the characteristics defining this habitat of the capricorn (Rhaeto-Romanic for ibex). The park extends from Thusis to Schams and includes large parts of the Safien Valley.
