Flims was rich in springs thanks to the fall of the Flims mountain. However, most of the water seeped quickly into the ground and so early (from the 8th century) irrigation ditches were created for irrigation. For this purpose, the water was directed by the river in artificially built channels on the fields. The Conngraben, today Connbächli, is one of the most important, oldest, longest and today still water-bearing trenches of Flims. Presumably created in the early Middle Ages, he served the irrigation of the meadows and to water the cattle in Conn. The water is taken below Punt Runca and passed over 6 km through the Flims forest to Conn. The Connerbächli is no longer used economically but continues to be maintained as a piece of cultural property by the municipality of Flims. The viewing platform Il Spir in Conn lets you float like a bird over the Rhine Gorge.

Ganz schöne Tour am Connbächli entlang. Durch einen sehr schönen, naturbelassenen Wald. Mit Kindern gut zu gehen und da am Wasser entlang sehr kurzweilig.
