It all began 10,000 years ago. Between the Flimserstein (a high plateau) and Piz Grisch over 10,000 million cubic metres of rock broke off and thundered down into the valley. Towards Reichenauhe the Upper Rhine Valley disappears under a gigantic mass of debris. From there the Rhine got to work, eating greedily through the rock and creating the spectacular Swiss 'Grand Canyon' - the Ruinaulta.
The new path leads along the Vorderhein from Reichenau into the wild Rhine Gorge up to Trin Station. Here a 100-meter long suspension bridge spans the Rhine River. After a short steep ascent you can walk through Bonaduzer Forest to the viewing platform at Wackenau. Continuing in the direction of Bonaduz you return to Reichenau.
Families and connoisseurs have the opportunity to return to Reichenau by taking the train at Trin Station.
Schlosshotel Adler, a castle hotel in Reichenau, serves local culinary specialties and fine wine.
