This exciting and enjoyable hike from Brambrüesch to the Dreibündenstein and on to Feldis takes you through delightful alpine flora and affords wonderful panoramic views of the surrounding mountains. Best of all, it is reached directly from the alpine town of Chur.
The local recreation area of Brambrüesch is reached by modern gondola lift directly from Chur, capital of the Canton of Graubünden. In summer this high alpine plateau is a favourite excursion destination for hiking and mountain biking while the cold winter months are given over to winter sports. The first leg of the ascent takes you through picturesque alpine landscapes, opening up wonderful mountain panoramas to the left comprising the mountains that encircle Arosa, the Schanfigg and the Lenzerheide.

At the Spundissee [Lake Spundis] the view then opens up on the other side. The crowning glory on the horizon is the Tödi and as you ascend further still, the scenery is dominated on the opposite side by the Calanda Massif and the Ringelspitz. The Dreibündenstein at 2160 m, a stone monument to the freedom fighters of Graubünden, marks the common border point of the former Three Leagues of Raetia.

The descent is through an unusually rich alpine flora, idyllic forested landscapes, alpine hamlets and the mountain lake of Leg Palus to the pretty mountain village of Feldis Throughout this leg the panora-ma is dominated by the Heinzenberg and Piz Beverin summits as well as the mountains between the Safien valley and the Surselva.
