History

In 1901, the Pforzheim section of the German Alpine Association set the milestone for the tourist development of the valley with the construction of the Pforzheimer Hütte. Because the hut was difficult to reach from Switzerland at the time, the Pforzheim section and its initiator Adolf Witzenmann soon looked for ways to create a connection. So she soon came up with the idea of a rock path, finally had it planned in detail, built and completed in 1910.

Schellen-Ursli filming location:

The crash of the loaded wagon and part of the alpine retreat were filmed at Puntins Ots below the adventure and cultural trail of the same name in Val d'Uina. The wooden giant for the removal of logs was built especially for the film and can still be admired at the entrance to the valley, about 100 meters to the left above the path. Can you still hear the tree trunks thundering into the valley? For more information about the Bell Ursli, see scuol-zernez.com/schellen-ursli
