This tour starts at the mountain station in Foppa. So it begins quite historically surrounded by Maiensässe and old wooden stables with thick snow blankets on the roof. On the right side, you will see the magnificent Flimserstein. Then the path leads romantically into the charming and snowy Flims forest. Out of the forest, you can see the fabulous view of our mountain region. When you arrive in Startgels you have the possibility to stop in the restaurant Startgels.

Author’s recommendation

Try the polenta with grilled meats in the restaurant Startgels.
