Hike on the sunny side of Flims with many places to stop for refreshments. It's not for nothing that our path passes the summer culinary trail, where you will find a mountain restaurant for every course.

Starting point fo this winter hike is Flims valley station, from where you will reach Foppa mountain station by chairlift.
Shortly below the mountain railways, we take the slightly ascending trail through the forest Stenna (Uaul Stenna) to the signpost 122. Once arrived there, we stay left and walk past forest as well as clear sections. After about 2 km you will pass restaurant Runcahöhe. With its sundeck, it offers a great opportunity for a break. After further 2 km you will reach the village border and you end your hike in Flims Waldhaus.

Author’s recommendation

Come in at the restaurant Runcahöhe and taste a fine delicacy.

Question from Walter Schärer · January 03, 2020 · Community
Unterhalb der Verweilbrücke überquert man den Flem-Bach auf einer weiteren Holzbrücke. Die gehört aber nicht zu den 7 Brücken des Wasserwegs?

Sehr schöne Panoramawanderung oberhalb von Flims. Die Route ist einfach begehbar, mit der Zeit zieht es sich dann aber doch noch beim rutschigen Abstieg im Schnee.
