Description

From the beautiful Alpine City of Chur, this varied route first leads along the Plessur river to Meiersboden. There begins the beautiful climb, which first leads to Passugg. The small village above Chur is known throughout Switzerland for the "Passugger" mineral water, which springs here from the legendary Theophil spring in the rough and wild Rabiosa gorge. The gorge is not on the route, but a short detour to the drinking hall is definitely worthwhile and recommended, because there the unruly Rabiosa gorge unfolds in its full glory. After a short stretch on the road follows the further ascent to Churwalden on the very worthwhile "Polenweg", which was extended by Polish people from 1940-44 and thus got its name.

Among other things, Churwalden is known for its adventure mountain Pradaschier and the longest toboggan run in Switzerland. A detour to the valley station, where a ticket can be purchased for the chairlift and a descent on the toboggan run is tempting (there is also a splendid mountain restaurant at the top). From Churwalden finally follows an ascent on a forest path and then a descent and traverse to the mountain road that leads to Brambrüesch. On the beautiful plateau you can not only refuel culinary, at the Brambus Center there is also a charging station for e-bikes and in the immediate vicinity there is also a moor course to see.

Finally, there is the enjoyable and panoramic descent from Brambrüesch to Chur, for the most part on forest paths. If you are technically skilled and have a full-suspension bike with you, you can also whiz down into the valley on the blue signaled freeride route in the Alpenbikepark Chur (the red and black routes are more recommended for thoroughbred downhillers). Back in Chur, it's worth taking a detour to the picturesque and car-free old town.
