Vom Flanieren und Philosophieren
"What I like most are the magnificent roads in which I walk for hours, theils after the Bernhardino, theils to the top of the Pass of the Splügen, without having to pay attention to the way."


Friedrich Nietzsche is delighted by the chausseen, the pass roads near Splügen. But the philosopher should be a little careful around 1872: After all, several carriages drive on the commercial road opened in 1823 over the San Bernardino, and quite quickly: In just 28 hours you can get from Chur to Bellinzona.

Of course, not only people are transported by road, but also goods. At least until 1882. Then the Gotthard Railway brings trade and traffic over the Graubünden Alpine passes almost completely to a standstill.
