The start takes place at the Obertor and through the historic old town of Chur, past the bishop's court and the cathedral and shortly afterwards on natural paths and through the residential quarter to the Fürstenwald recreation area. After a nice round through the forest we descend again towards the Mühleturm and the banks of the Rhine. After a longer flat stretch along the Rhine, the way back follows a magnificent section of forest until you finally immerse yourself in city life again from the Rosenhügel back to the old town.
