The high plateau Brambrüesch can be reached comfortably with the cableways from the city of Chur. The hike first leads straight on to the mountain restaurant and then up to the Malixeralp on the right side of the ski lift and on to Spundis, where a fantastic panorama opens up towards the region of the Surselva. Via Hühnerköpfe (top station ski lift) the trail continues upwards through a varied and beautiful alpine flora. At Furggabüel you finally reach the highest point and are rewarded with an impressive all-round panorama. At this point, a two-part panorama board provides information about the surrounding mountain world and also the clearly visible mountain ranges of the Tectonic Arena Sardona (UNESCO World Heritage). Just a short walk and you reach the Dreibündenstein, marked by a clearly visible boundary stone, where you can also sign the summit book. With a magnificent view you continue your hike towards Pradaschier. After a relatively steep descent, turn right. Now it goes more gently downhill to Galtialp and one crosses on a beautiful hiking trail over Trittwald back towards Brambrüesch. On the way, a detour to the idyllic Edelweisshütte, where you can eat. Back in Brambrüesch, there are finally three mountain restaurants with sun terraces available, so that you can finish this wonderful circular hike with pleasure before taking the cableways back to Chur.
