Moorlands come into existence at locations that are constantly moist, or during the summer months.

In the Canton of Graubünden, flat moors cover about 3,000 hectares of land. And in these flat moorlands around 10% of Graubünden's flora and fauna can be found. Therefore, these must be protected to the largest extent possible.

Castle ruins and upland moor Sonvilier

The 10-km-long walk from Sonvilier to the Hôtel Chasseral leads past the castle ruins of the former Erguël castle, along Jura moors and the upper part of the "Combe Grède". The Combe-Grède, a spectacular chasm in the Jurrassic limestone, literally divides the mountain vertically into two parts. The walk takes 3.5 hours. You can reach Sonvilier by train; a bus service operates from the Chasseral.

Aegelsee lake and moorland

Up on the Diemtigbergli above Diemtigen, a popular place for excursions and well-known for the fishing. Since 1958 its primary purpose has been as the balancing reservoir for the Erlenbach power station. The protected upland moor on the eastern side of the lake provides a habitat for many plants and animals. There is a footpath round the Aegelsee, starting from the Diemtig-Bergli restaurant.
