The Language Trail explains how the Romance language 15v. After the Romans' entry into the Roman Empire, it was when the Romansh language area reached its greatest extent and why it then shrunk. The findings on the linguistic background of the 4th Swiss national language and parallels with other languages follow. Accompanying the knowledge of the Romance language is information on the sights you will encounter, the evolution of Flims and how Surselva got its name. By the time you reach the end of Senda Romontscha, you can certainly talk to some locals about your walk, the weather, the forest and its animals

Author’s recommendation

Exciting information about the impressive tectonic arena Sardona, the Martinsloch, the Cauma and Cresta lakes as well as the Rhine gorge, the Il Spir observation platform and the Pinut via ferrata await you.
