Viadukt Langwies
Sapün is a high valley, an alp and former Walser settlement on the territory of the former municipality of Langwies.


The wild mountain valley between Arosa and Chur has preserved its original character and cultural features to this day. It stretches from the Plessur in the valley bottom up to the Mattjischhorn and into the picturesque side valleys Fondei and Sapün. Experience the untouched nature in Schanfigg. The Walser village Sapün Dörfji is an old, beautiful Walser village. It is worth stopping for a moment to admire the beautiful houses. After the village, the path continues through the valley, passing small hamlets. At the end, it becomes a bit strenuous and steep again, until you reach the romantic Bergsterne Hotel Heimeli after a short while.
