Stage 2 / Andeer-Splügen: There is also a gorge crossing on the itinerary for today's stage. The spectacular path, which was sunk into the rock with hand drills, is characterised by dry-stone walls, semi-galleries, unlined tunnels and walled galleries. After the Rofla Gorge we come to Sufers on the reservoir, which was mentioned in a list of the royal goods in Rätien as far back as 831, which makes it the oldest village in the valley. Today's stage finishes in the characteristic mountain pass village of Splügen. We recommend a visit to the Rhine Forest Local History Museum, which impressively documents the history of transport in the valley.
Safety informationThe viaSpluga is a mountain hiking trail. You need to be sure-footed and have a good head for heights (bridges, Cardinello Gorge) along some sections.

Stage 2: Andeer–Splügen: Heading south out of the village of Andeer, the trail takes you to the Roffla Gorge (sightseeing is possible). An intelligently created route steers you through the impassable landscape towards the clear valley of the Rhine Forest, past the Crestawald Fortifications Museum, which is a place of historic military interest, and on toSufers. The woodland passage between Sufers and Splügen, along what's known as the Roman Way, brings the second stage to a magnificent close.
