Why is someone building a settlement at 1470 meters above sea level? From today's perspective, the place where the first Feldisers built their houses seems somewhat exotic. Little is known about the origins of the village, old settlement remains are missing. Only from Roman times come individual coin finds, and the church of St. Hippolytus is believed to stand on a pre-Christian cult site. Hippolytus, the saint of prison guards and horses, even owes Feldis his name: Over several stages, Hippolytus became Feldis or Veulden, as the Romanesque name is. In 1900, almost the entire village population spoke Romansh, but now the proportion is less than 15 percent.
At the mountain station of the Rhäzüns-Feldis cable car you will find the free brochure (MiniGuide), which provides exciting information on eleven selected locations and/or objects. The time required is about 45 minutes.
Another station is located on Mutta - between Feldis and the Dreibündenstein. There, thirteen tall, slender female figures made of Feldis larch wood rise into the air. They tell how fire, earth, air and water rule over Feldis, how the elements make life on the mountain easier and at the same time shape.
Any hiking trail closures/restrictions or diversions can be found here.
Feldis can be reached by cable car from Rhäzüns or by PostBus. Further information on the timetable can be found on the SBB website: www.sbb.ch.
