Cassons – above Flimserstein

Graubünden

Way above Flims, probably the best vantage point for views over the region and afar is the Cassonsgrat or Fil de Cassons. From Flims Dorf a chairlift and cable cars offer comfortable rides up.

Bare limestone walls, living evidence of the gigantic Flims rockslide, recall the power of nature and a historic event. The Casson’s alpine nature trail provides information on the geology, tectonics, flora and fauna of this spectacular region.

The Sardona Unesco World Heritage information board sheds light on this geological phenomenon: 250 million-year-old verrucano rock muscled its way through 35 to 50 million year-old Flysch to form the Alps.
