This section of the Dörferweg crosses the Schanfigg valley and leads you to the other side of the valley in the direction of Tschiertschen. This tour section leads in Peist, from the main road Chur - Arosa road down to the Unterdorf. Then via the railway station on the Meliorationsweg to the only valley-floor settlement of the Schanfigg, Molinis.

Author’s recommendation

Molinis is home to various craftsmen. If you are lucky, you can look over the shoulders of each of them as they work their natural materials.
