Bucht am Alpenrhein am Rande der Stadt Chur
The Rhine rises in the Grisons Alps, the Vorderrhein near Lake Toma, Oberalppass in the Surselva and the Hinterrhein near the Rheinwaldhorn in the Hinterrhein/Viamala region. At Reichenau-Tamins, the Vorderrhein and Hinterrhein join to form the Rhine, which then flows past the city of Chur through the Graubünden and St. Gallen Rhine valleys into Lake Constance and on to the North Sea.


Along the significant river Rhine with a length of 1,231 km there are always places where you can linger. The Rhine in Chur and the surrounding area is too wild and too cold for swimming. Numerous beautiful places, fireplaces as well as hiking trails and bicycle tours entice you to explore the diverse Rhine valley. On its course through the canton of Graubünden, the Rhine passes, among other places, the well-known wine-growing areas in the Bündner Herrschaft.
