The widely scattered farms are located at an elevation of 1,400 to 1,850 meters. The sections Innerglas, Ausserglas, Obergmeind, Ober- and Untertschappina are part of the community. Walser people, who migrated from Safien Valley to Heinzenberg, settled the area in the 14th century. Tschappina thus has been part of the German-speaking communities of Canton Graubünden for centuries.

Summer

Gentle hills entice one to hike and rest awhile at Heinzenberg. The PostBus brings guests from June to October from Thusis to the Glaspass. Whoever hikes on the Heinzenberg ridge, enjoys a magnificent 360-degree view of Graubünden’s mountain world. The Walser Trail in Graubünden, which leads via the Glaspass to Safien Valley and/or down to Thusis, is also worth discovering. The Heinzenberg mountain lakes guarantee a pleasant cooling off and at Lake Patrutg in Oberurmein rowing boats, rafts and brooks entice young and old water enthusiasts. The Eco Energy Path in Flerden and the Meadow Name Path in Tschappina convey a lot of information worth knowing.
