Description

Start and finish of the round trip is the parking lot /viewpoint Islabord between Versam village and the train station Versam-Safien. The view of the Rhine Gorge from the Islabord platform is breathtaking and always worthwhile. Right from the start, the path leads alternately through forests and meadows through Versam and up to the Maiensässen near Calörtsch. On natural roads you can reach the highest point of the tour on the Brno Alp without much effort. Here, too, a particularly exciting panorama is offered. So you look over to the Flims plateau, which impressively shows the traces of the great landslide about 10,000 years ago. Down to the idyllic village of Brno it goes briskly over natural roads. From here it continues on side roads down to the main road. You stay on it for a very short distance before continuing on forest roads back to the starting point.

Geheimtipp

A visit to the islabord viewing platform is definitely worthwhile to enjoy the imposing Rhine Gorge.
