Felszeichnungen Carschenna - Sils i.D.
Show all 7 images
On a high plateau inhabited since prehistoric times, 250 m vertically above Thusis lies the castle complex Hohen Rätien. In nearby Carschenna are the mysterious petroglyphs.
The hike starts at the restaurant Campbell in Sils i.D. A few meters from the restaurant is the village church, where the ascent to High Raetia begins. The historic mule track leads under the walls of Ehrenfels Castle and climbs through the forest to Hohe Rätien (947 m).
The settlement plateau has served since time immemorial as a waystation for traders on their arduous way through the Viamala and over the Splügen Pass to the south.
The carefully restored fortified church is located on a panoramic rocky plateau high above the entrance to the Viamala Gorge and houses an early Christian baptismal font from the 4th/5th century as a special treasure.Back to the
cut at the castle hill, follow the road through the forest and over the meadows to Crap Carschenna (1,122 m). Enjoy the view over the Domleschg and the Heinzenberg. On the edge of the terrain, about 100 m north, you will find mysterious petroglyphs, which were only discovered in 1965. The symbols carved into the stone probably date back to the Bronze Age (around 1800 BC): circles, spirals, bowls, horses with riders and hem loads - a fascinating encounter with signs that are difficult to interpret.
Downhill you reach Campi (castle) in an easterly direction via a comfortable road and via the forest path to Sils i.D.
Any hiking trail closures/restrictions or diversions can be found here.
