Via Francisca: Chur - Bonaduz
Show all 3 images
Between Chur and Disentis there are now two pilgrimage routes, with the Via Francisca running mainly on the southern side of the Rhine, while the Graubünden Way of St. James runs on the northern side. However, the two paths are almost identical to Tamins. So it can happen that the two hikers in front are also pilgrims, but on the way from South Tyrol to Central Switzerland.
Both paths lead from Chur towards the Grisons Oberland, called Surselva. Initially, we hike on the southern edge of the wide Rhine Valley. At Domat/Ems we first cross the tracks of the Rhaetian Railway at the train station, then walk between the two hills "Tuma Tschelli" and "Tuma Casti" and then circle the second one to the north. This takes us first to the Rhine power plant, and after crossing the Rhine via the weir, the paths separate to meet again briefly on the main square of Tamins. But only up to the crossing of the square, where we separate again. After the village well of Tamins, with the best drinking water in the area, it is said to go down to cross the Vorderrhein on the railway bridge. And so we get to Bonaduz.
