As a gateway to Graubünden, the Alpine town of Chur is the perfect starting point for an Alpine cross route – for the three-day "escape" to the south to the Italian-Swiss border region of Valposchiavo.

Geheimtipp

In Savognin there is a wonderful swimming lake for a perfect cooling off in hot temperatures.

Directions

From Chur main station you get on the Postbus to Tschiertschen and start a little later in the sometimes steep ascent to the Ochsenalp. Up to the Carmenna hut above Arosa, the terrain is a bit more moderate, then the path leads steeply up to the Hörnlihütte. The single trail to Urdenfürggli is considered a mountain bike classic, but is not easy to ride. Especially in the final ascent, most push the bike. But the effort is worth it: The long descent to Lenzerheide is legendary and leads after the middle station Scharmoin on the flow route of the Lenzerheide Bikepark to the valley station. After the town centre, follow the trail along the main road. At the golf course you turn sharply to the right and drive to the settlement of Tschividains and continue on a wonderful flow trail high above the inconspicuous gorge. A mix of single trail and forest road leads to Tiefencastel station. In Tiefencastel, it is preferable to take the Postbus to the stage destination Savognin. If you want to get to the village on your own, drive on a little-used mountain road to a small, nameless pass above the village of Mon. This ascent can also be mastered with the Postbus. The following descent to Savognin leads over gravel and asphalt roads, but largely traffic-free. The first stage of the three-day Graubünden crossing has thus been completed. After the German-speaking Chur, savognin has reached the Rhaeto-Romanic cultural area of Graubünden.

Effective kilometres on the bike: 41 km.
