Bündner Rütli

Bündner Rütli
More rights, more security and more autonomy vis-à-vis the authorities: this was what people in today's Graubünden wanted in the 15th century.

Description

That is why three alliances were formed: in the Surselva the Grey League was formed, in the Prättigau/Davos area the Zehngerichtebund and in the Engadine, Oberhalbstein, Avers and in the Bündner Herrschaft the Church League was formed.According to legend, these three federations are said to have joined together in 1471 – in Vazerol. According to legend, the three original Swiss cantons of Uri, Schwyz and Unterwalden have already done something similar: On the Rütli on Lake Lucerne, they are said to have founded the Swiss Confederation. Vazerol is therefore referred to as "Bündner Rütli". With the unification of the three federations in 1471, the Free State of the Three Leagues is said to have been founded; the predecessor state of today's Graubünden. An obelisk on Vazerolplatz in Chur commemorates this legendary event, and a memorial stone stands in Vazerol itself.
