Details

Description

Why does Obersaxen have so many chapels? One reason is certainly the location and the division of the 30 hamlets on the 12 kilometer long panoramic terrace. The deep gorges with their streams, the snowy winters and the poor connecting paths were almost insurmountable obstacles to being able to attend the church services in Meierhof regularly. 

On this circular hike you will discover five of 11 chapels and the parish church of St. Peter and Paul in Meierhof.

The stories and interesting background information on the sacred buildings are collected in the Kunsführer Churches and Chapels of Obersaxen, Surcuolm and Flond. This can be purchased at the information office in Obersaxen Meierhof.

Geheimtipp

In 1704, the well-known itinerant painter Johann Jakob Rieg created the remarkable murals in the chapel of the Hll. Three kings in Platenga. Alois Carigiet restored it faithfully in 1942/43.
