Short tour starting in Ilanz with few climbs. Through nature reserves and mead-ows alongside the Rhine – the perfect tour for families.
From the railyway station in Ilanz, the first town on the emerging Rhine, the cycle route runs along a dirt track to Castrisch. The historic village centre with its typical fountain is part of Switzer-land’s protected cultural heritage and well worth a break. A protected bat colony inhabits the attic of the church. The route continues underneath the trainline and on through fields and meadows down to the Isla Sut (nature reserve) at the entrance to the Rhine Gorge. There is a barbecue facility right by the river. Barbecued sausages taste particularly good during a break on the peninsular by the emerging Rhine. Refreshed, you then continue briefly along the Rhine. After crossing a small stream, dirt tracks take you through an alluvial forest on the right and under the train line back to Castrisch and on to Ilanz.
