Description

After a leisurely roll through the Graubünden Rhine Valley into the Prättigau region, the climb on the mountain road towards Valzeina begins shortly before Grüsch. The small mountain village is a typical Walser scattered settlement with numerous farms, which are far apart. After leaving the asphalt road, the climb continues through the long, wild and magnificent Valzeina valley up to Stams, the highest point of the tour. The beautifully situated Walser settlement is today only used as a maiensäss. In addition to the great view far into the Chur Rhine Valley, there is also a rustic mountain restaurant where you can fortify yourself with drinks and Graubünden specialties.

Now follows a long descent via Says - also a Walser settlement - down to the village of Trimmis. Finally, it's back to the Alpine City of Chur on a beautiful bike path through the Fürstenwald forest.
