In the Middle Ages, the route from Lake Constance through the Rhine Valley via the city of Chur and the Graubünden pass landscapes was the most important north-south connection between southern Germany and the northern Italian Po Valley. This geographically advantageous position made the area an important economic, transit and trading area. Cities formed alliances, agreed on a single monetary system, practiced agriculture, crafts, mining, and traded with distant areas.
Twelve archaeological departments and museums between Constance and Chur have joined forces to offer exciting insights into medieval life in this economic area as part of a travelling exhibition. Around 150 top-class finds and written sources illustrate the lively trade, medieval craftsmanship and everyday life between the Alps and the Rhine Falls. For the first time, the finds discovered in 2020 from the craftsmen's quarter of the Chur Sennhof area will also be presented.
