The tour starts at Chur railway station and leads across the Plessur river in the direction of Passugg. On a steep side path at the beginning you reach the turnoff to Passugg without traffic. From there you follow the road to Passugg and further up towards Tschiertschen until you reach the fork in the forest road to Grida. From here the traffic-free and panoramic ascent begins. At Foppa, already at 1753 m above sea level, the road branches off to the left. The highest point, the Churer Joch, can be seen from far away. But the legs still have to pedal bravely until then. It's worth it! A far view to the Calanda, the Lenzerheide and the Arosa mountain range opens up. And those who continue at the hut to the summit can see the Alpine City of Chur deep down in the valley.

The descent leads on a single trail in the direction of Tschietschen. Later one drives on a forest road to Furgglis, where there is a beautiful mountain inn. On another trail over the Geissboden the trail continues down to the pretty mountain village of Tschiertschen. The red shining geraniums and many coloured flowers decorate the wooden houses darkened by the sun. The further descent first follows the main road, changing to a single trail above the road to Praden. There again a bit of descent follows on the road until finally a beautiful single trail branches off to the right through the Steinbach forest and leads to the valley near Meiersboden/Araschgen. From there take the road back to Chur.

Chur, the Alpine City, here a visit to the picturesque Old Town is worthwhile. Refresh yourself, for example, on the Kornplatz with a fine Alpine City ice cream in the Gelateria Evviva Plankis.

Karte und Beschrieb stimmen nicht überein. Wenn man dem Polenwäg folgt kommt man bis nach Churwalden. Bitte dementsprechend anpassen!
