The Rhine is large and long. We recommend you here but only a small round from Ilanz. Almost at the end of the day or for in between during the holidays. It is often already drivable in March. Caution is then only appropriate on the shady Polenweg.

You drive over the oldest covered wooden bridge in Graubünden, past an old, water-powered blacksmith's shop and finally take a look at the beautiful old town of Ilanz. A perfect combination of training and culture.

Description

First you cross the Rhine and soon find yourself on a beautiful forest road with gravel surface. A little later, an old blacksmith's shop suddenly appears past the villages of Strada and Schnaus. Until the 70s, the well-known Schnauser Plüge were produced there and finally even exported to the King of Bhutan. Our route runs under the rope of the forge's hydropower-powered air pump. Of course, the road surface here is pure gravel. After a short and very steep ramp we can even enjoy a simple single trail. Below Rueun we cross the oldest covered wooden bridge in the canton of Graubünden. Now it's time to roll out. The Polenweg - again pure history - leads us comfortably back to Ilanz. If you have not yet experienced enough exciting history, you can take a detour to the historic old town. Have fun!

Geheimtipp

After the forge in Schnaus, by the stream, descend briefly and look at the technique of the water wheel. It is the drive for the bellows of the former forge.
