Hint

Intro

Chur, the oldest town in Switzerland, deserves a short visit. Then to Felsberg, and below the south flank of the Calanda along an old sunken path to Tamins.

Description

Having arrived in Chur by train, this is the start of the Alpine Passes Trail, number six. You first hike along tarmacked roads, before later walking alongside the Rhine.

The idyll of the Rhine on one side represents a juxtaposition to the noisy motorway on the other. Around halfway along the trail, you leave the river behind and continue along the old sunken path. Butterflies, flowers and wild bees line the wayside. After a leisurely ascent through a bright deciduous forest, hikers soon reach the little village of Tamins.

Accommodation

An enjoyable tour includes the careful planning of the same. Please inform yourself in advance at the local information center about the route and weather conditions. Depending on the season and weather conditions, this route may be blocked or interrupted
