Show all 5 images
Varied hike through forests and fields : The first stage of the Schanfigger Höhenweg leads from Chur via Meiersboden and Passugg to Tschiertschen.
The starting point of the first stage is left up to the hiker: directly from the station or by bus to Meiersboden. The signposting to the Schanfigger Höhenweg begins at the St. Hilarienbrüggli. On the way, you pass the hotel management school in Passugg. The building of the former spa hotel is impressive. The Grida-Praden section of the trail is physically demanding, but the reward is wild and romantic passages in the Steinbachtobel. You then pass the village sawmill in Praden. Afterwards you can see the village church from the 17th century. Then you walk partly on the Churer Alpweg (before 1890) past the larch forest to Tschiertschen. In the village centre is the 15th-century church with exposed relics of late Gothic frescoes and a listed Toggenburg organ from 1820. If you still have energy left, visit Füxliweg. A special attraction is also the Tschiertscher Säge (saw), which is still operated by the water power of the Sagenbach stream.
Visit the Güdahof farm shop - with honey from the region, syrup and jams made from seasonal fruit or herbs from the farm garden, Filisurer ice cream and gift articles to complement the carefully compiled range. Bring a piece of your holiday home with you!
In bad weather, the Steinbachtobel can be difficult to pass. Partly demanding physical requirements. Alternatively, parts of the route can be completed by public transport.
Good shoes, rain jacket, walking sticks if necessary, enough to drink, snack to eat.
