Great round trip through the Rhine Gorge with crossing the bridge Punt Ruinaulta near Trin and the ruins and viewing platform Wackenau as another highlight.

This circuit leads from Reichenau, the confluence of the Vorderrhein and Hinterrhein, along the Vorderrhein to Trin Station. Here you cross the Rhine over a 100 meter long suspension bridge (Punt Ruinaulta). A short, steep ascent follows. On the further way it is worth visiting the ruins of Wackenau and the viewing platform, which is slightly below the ruins and accessible from May to October. Through the Bonaduz forest you then return to Reichenau.

Ich habe die Wanderung als sehr schön empfunden. Nicht so toll, finde ich recht schwach wenn die Begründung fehlt!
