Directly from the city of Chur, this circular tour leads through the wine-growing villages in the Graubünden Rhine valley and later the "Bündner Herrschaft". Part of the route runs along the Graubünden wine hiking trail, where various panels provide interesting information about regional viticulture. From the outermost Graubünden village of Fläsch, the return journey then takes place along the Alpine Rhine and, at the end, with a detour through the old town of Chur, which is well worth seeing, to the starting point at the train station.
