Brambrüesch - Chur's local mountain
Diverse views over the city of Chur - the higher you climb the better the views and the more you see! Adventurers may stay in Brambruesch, while hikers often choose to climb the Dreibündenstein.
Located on the highest point, you reach the boundary stone of the former three Rhaetian federations in less than two hours on foot. Continuing direction Churwalden/Lenzerheide or Feldis, often along ridges, the hike offers some truly great views.
The two cableways have been hooking up the recreational area since 1957/58, the upper section initially being fitted with the elegant two-man gondolas (eggs) and in the summer, open two-man cabins too. In the winter, lifts transport skiers to the Dreibündenstein.
