With the settlement of the west side of Lenzerheide, intimate places of worship were donated by individual families and believers. They are located in places such as rocky edges, on dangerous routes or in remote hamlets to protect against misfortune and danger. They testify to the gratitude and contemplation of the local population.

Details

Description

On the east side of the Lenzerheide holiday region or the municipality of Vaz/Obervaz there are no chapels, because the settlement originated from the root fractions Lain, Muldain and Zorten and large parts of the forest area belonged to the municipality of Lantsch/Lenz.

Various hikes lead past the various chapels.

Directions

From the Lenzerheide post office you walk about 5 minutes to the Kath. Kirche Lenzerheide and continue via the schoolhouse to the tennis court, where the Mariengrotte is located on a small hill vis-à-vis. It is a chapel of a special kind of Lenzerheide, because it was built on the initiative of the Ingebohler Order Sister Redemta together with local young people. On August 15, the feast of the Assumption of Mary, processions with flowers and burning candles to the decorated statue of Mary were held until the 70s. The path continues along the Heidbach to the Heidsee. There you walk from the Lido on the left side of the lake to the restaurant La Riva, along the lake road to the hill, where then the hiking trail leads left away in the direction of Lieptges and youth hostel Valbella/Sartons. A new chapel can be found on the hiking trail in Lieptgas in honour of St Anthony (about 30 minutes from the Fadail car park or 20 minutes from the Valbella/Sartons Youth Hostel).  Then the path leads past the youth hostel, along the Sartonsstrasse down to Valbella to the Parpaner Höhe. There you can immediately reach the chapel in honor of St. Francis of Assisi in Valbella Davains. The hike can then be continued via Valbella Resort, Fastatsch, Heidsee back to Lenzerheide.
