Show all 12 images
The Rhine-Reuss-Rhône Way connects the Graubünden Surselva to the vicinity of Lake Geneva. From the beginning in Disentis over the passes Oberalp and Furka to the Valais Goms we are on the way in the mountains at over 1000 m.

The Rotten (the Rhone) is our constant companion from Gletsch to St. Maurice. The hiking trail steals on the first hour and a half of the way next to road and railway through the narrow valley to Oberwald. Still above the first village we meet the pilgrim and travel saint in the St. Nicholas Chapel. In Oberwald we find a Church of the Holy Cross. The next 20 km in the fantastically beautiful U-Valley have hardly any gradients. From each of the tanned wooden house villages protrudes a dazzling white church tower, in the background green forests. The Rottenweg leads us to Geschinen and via a magnificent meadow path we reach Münster (Monasterium, former monastery). In the parish church of the former large parish, one of the most beautiful Gothic altars in Switzerland awaits us, as well as the adjacent parish museum, the pretty little St. Peter's Church and the remarkably baroque Antonius Chapel on the Biel.
From Oberwald we have the opportunity to change to the Matterhorn-Gotthard Railway (MGB) every half hour.
On this alpine trail to Goms, frosty and windy conditions are also possible outside the winter months. Good weather protection is therefore doubly important
