Description

On the former access road, which is closed to motorized traffic, the simple tour masters the incline into the Tamina Valley to Valens. The rehabilitation centre there is one of the leading rehabilitation clinics in Switzerland and specialises in the treatment of functional disorders of the movement rate and the nervous system. With a view of the imposing Tamina Bridge - an arched bridge with a span of 270 m - and into the depth of the Tamina Gorge, the tour makes a loop over Vasön and the Mapragg reservoir. The water from this balancing basin, which has already been used for electricity production, can be pumped back into the higher Gigerwald reservoir in phases of low electricity consumption and used again for electricity production if necessary. In Pfäfers, the baroque monastery church and the Cristo statue at Wartenstein Castle as well as wonderful views of the Grisons Rhine Valley accompany the rapid descent down to Bad Ragaz back to the Tamina Therme.

Geheimtipp

In the garden of the Hotel Schloss Wartenstein, the Cristo statue watches and enjoys the view.

Ausrüstung

Normal cycling equipment. Functional clothing is an advantage, as ascents and descents alternate.
