The first part of the climb takes place on the little-used mountain road from Chur via Passugg to Tschiertschen. The magnificent Walser village is definitely worth a stop - if not during the ascent, at the latest on the return journey. The route then continues on mountain and forest roads higher and higher up into the magnificent Tschiertschen mountain world. With the Furgglis mountain inn and the Hühnerköpfe mountain restaurant, there are two worthwhile options for refreshments along the way. At the latter, the change from the e-bike tour to the hike follows. There are still about 450 meters of altitude to climb before reaching the summit of the Gürgaletsch at 2,441m. There, a wonderful view of the Schanfigg valley, the Alpine City of Chur, the surrounding Grisons mountains, as well as the Glarus Alps in a southwesterly direction and, on a clear day, as far as the Bernese Alps.

The descent follows the same route. For technically experienced mountain bikers who still have reserves, however, there are also various trail options back to Chur.


From Chur on mountain bike route 255 (Brambrüesch) via Meiersboden to Passugg. Continue on the mountain road via Praden to Tschiertschen and on mountain and forest roads via Furgglis to the Hühnerköpfe mountain restaurant. From there on foot via Tälli and Scheidegga to the Gürgaletsch summit. Return on the same way to the mountain restaurant Hühnerköpfe, as a worthwhile variation we also recommend the round hike via Stelli, Obersäss and Farur back to the mountain restaurant Hühnerköpfe. Return from the Hühnerköpfe mountain restaurant on the ascent route via Tschiertschen to Chur.
