The tiny village Brienz/Brinzauls (120 people) is a natural sun terrace between Lenzerheide and Davos. It is home to treasures dating back to the 13th century. It's also the starting point for the hiking route which passes the castle ruin Belfort.

The path goes directly to the ruin Belfort. The castle offers a glorious view over the Albula valley. The tour continues down to the cantonal road. Follow the quiet path until you see the village Surava. The path now heads up to the village edge of Brienz/Brinzauls.

The tour leads to the very heart of Graubünden in Vazerol. Here in 1471 on the old border between the Leagues of «God's House» and «The Ten Jurisdictions» an alliance was formed. You can still find the inscription on a stone «In memory of the alliance of God's House, The Ten Jurisdictions and the Grey League in Vazerol 1471.» The tour now leads back to the start point at Brienz/Brinzauls.
