alserweg Graubünden - The Way to the Walsers
Show all 17 images
In the 13th century, a wave of emigration took place in the Valais. The settlers settled in the highest alpine regions that had not been inhabited all year round. The sovereigns called them "Walsers" and granted them special freedoms: For example, they received the land they had cleared as a perpetual hereditary fief or the right to self-government and marriage. With these special rights, they were "free" and independent compared to other population groups.
The long-distance trail leads in 23 daily stages through the canton of Graubünden in the footsteps of the Walsers. You hike through unknown Alpine valleys, intact cultural landscapes and picturesque Walser settlements. The hiking experiences were developed by the Walser Association of Graubünden in cooperation with the local population. On your hike you will gain in-depth insights into the life of the Walsers of the past and present, enjoy traditional Walser fare or have informative conversations with locals during the hike.
