Historic Walser route, Grisons, Part 2

Tuesday 4 August - Saturday 8 August

A long-distance historic trail in the footsteps of the Walser people in the high valleys of the Grisons: 18 one-day sections to be spread over four summers! In 2020 we take five days to hike the second section, from Thusis to Mulegns, discovering en route the culture and fascinating history of the Walser folk.

Highlights

Typical Walser settlements with wooden houses, barns and shingle roofing; varied trails taking us through species-rich alpine meadows, moors, stone pine and larch forests; the hamlet of Obermutten with its tiny timber church; the famous 12th-century painted ceiling of St Martin’s church in Zillis; the historic sgraffito-covered houses in Andeer; the wild Roflaschlucht gorge; the rocky, alpine descent from Stallerberg into Val Faller.
