You’ll leave Splügen (1458 m above sea level) on cycle route no. 505 "Rheinwaldroute" down the valley. At first, the road heads a few meters in the direction of Splügen Pass.

In the first bend, you’ll turn left and reach a short but steep climb through the Fugscht forest (1589 m above sea level). A rapid descent brings you to the Sufnersee, whose water shines turquoise. On the Northern shore of the lake, you’ll take the little-traveled road in the direction of Roflaschlucht (gorge). Even from the road, you’re guaranteed great views of the wild canyon. Through Bärenburg (1040 m above sea level), you’ll take a side road to Pignia. From here, a nature trail leads to Zillis (945 m above sea level). An insider's tip is Capun's, a local specialty - prepared by the Swiss Capuns champion at the hotel Post. Strengthened from the food the route leads you over Reischen (1024 meters) through the Viamala gorge to Thusis (680 m above sea level). Cycle route no. 6 takes you along the Posterior Rhine through the Domleschg. In Reichenau, where the Anterior Rhine merges the Rhine Anterior, change onto the Rheinrad route no. 2 and a comfortable ride back to Chur (593 m above sea level).

Questions and answers

Question from Elisabeth Kuhl Kuhl · September 10, 2022 · Community
Hallo, die Idee gefällt mir sehr gut, den Zusammenfluss in Reichenau anzusehen. Die Route 6 führt gar nicht über Reichenau. Wie kann ich von der 6 so auf die 2 wechseln, dass ich über Reichenau komme? Herzlichen Dank im Voraus, LISA

Guten Tag Lisa Vielen Dank für deine Nachricht. Die Tour führt direkt am Zusammenfluss des Vorderrhein und Hinterrhein vorbei. Nämlich zwischen Reichenau und Tamins - siehe Karte. Dort wechseln Sie ebenfalls auf die Route 2. Für weitere Frage stehe ich gerne zur Verfügung und ich wünsche Ihnen bereits heute viel Vergnügen auf der Tour. Beste Grüsse Antonella
