The Chur city bus no. 2 takes you the Fürstenwald above of the city. This is the starting point of this hiking tour. From there, follow the wide forest road steadily up to Mittenberg. On the way and on the Mittenberg you will find fountains with fresh spring water. Up at Mittenberg, you have a wonderful panorama view into the Chur Rhine valley and the surrounding mountains and is an ideal place for a picknick, as well.

Descent along the pastures to Maladers, Brandacker and below the Arosa street into the direction of the city again, past the Episcopal courtyard with the famous cathedral. There you will enter the wonderful and historic Old town of Chur again.
