The tour starts at the Chur train station, from where you soon follow the local stream called Plessur, which later on flows into the Rhine. Along the tree-covered riverside of the Rhine, you walk at the foot of the impressive Calanda mountain. On the way back to the city you will pass Switzerland's largest mural painting at the Mühleturm, then follow the Mühlebach stream and pass by the 1'200 m2 large sculpture park at the Forum Würth, where you can see artworks of famous artists like Jean Tinguely, Bernhard Luginbühl, Not Vital or Niki de Saint Phalle.
