As with almost every large town Chur naturally has it’s own mountain. In comparison with the hill-like Uetliberg at Zürich, the people of Chur have a really big mountain in front of the town, the Calanda. A three day mountain hike leads from Haldenstein in the Rhine valley up to the Calanda cabin and over the Kunkel pass to the Ringelspitz cabin.

Even the Romans used the pass to avoid the dangerous places of the Rhine. Today the Rhine between Tamins and Chur has for the most part been straightened and made safer. The last stage leads from the Ringelspitz cabin down into the valley again to Tamins.
