The tour will leave Andeer via the wooden bridge that was constructed in 1856, leading you across the Hinterrhein up to Clugin. In the village of Clugin a visit to the church, which is located in an idyllic spot, should not be missed. From Clugin the hike takes you to the castle ruin of Cagliatscha (built in the 11th and 12th centuries) and to the Tobel Val Tgatscha (a valley) and then across the famous Maillart Bridge up to Donat. Stately buildings characterize the village panorama, for example, the Marchion houses, which date from the 17th century. From here the hike takes you via Bach Ual da Sudan to Zillis. On this side of the valley the tour takes you via Pignia back to Andeer.
