Many castles and mansions can be found in the Domleschg. Some of them are still inhabited nowadays and used as cultural sites or for catering services (Schloss Tagstein & Schloss Schauenstein), while others are fallen into ruin.

This tour is mainly on asphalted and graveled roads. The first part of the tour takes you to the mountainside of Domleschg with the Bonaduzer and Rhäzünser Alp, the Heinzenberg and wonderful views into the Domleschg and Sa-fien valleys. On the second part you leasurely ride through the handsome villages and scenery of the Domleschg valley. The beautiful Canova lake is a good spot for taking a swim and relaxing at the lakeside. The last section then is on the historical Polenweg, a path above the Rhine river, that has been built by Polish internees during the second world war. At the junction of point 665 take a left and ride back to Reichenau-Tamins, the starting point of the tour.

Schöne jedoch strenge Tour ohne E-Bike. Ganz tolle Aussichtspunkte und eine gute Einkehrmöglichkeit nach ca. 5 Min. Abfahrt Richtung Scardanal
