The ascent of this tour is very comfortable - just enter the gondola in Chur and  float to Brambrüesch. Up there on the high plateau, exactly 1'000 meters of height above the city of Chur, first you walk straight forward and you will pass three mountain restaurants: Battagliahütte, VIVA berg.baiz and Malixerhof. When you pass the Malixerhof, the descent into direction of Känzeli begins. Follow the wide forest road and enjoy the scenery and the panorama. Here and there you walk in the shade of the forest, then through some longer glades. In the middle section the panorama to the Schanfigg valley with the mountains of Hochwang, Arosa Weisshorn, Strelapass and Weissfluhgipel are particularly beautiful. Shortly before you arrive at the Känzeli the panorama to the city of Chur and the Rhine valley opens up. From the middle station Känzeli you can then float back into valley with the gondola.
