Description

The Rhine Route crosses Eastern Switzerland in a huge arc, accompanying the mighty Alpine river from its mountain source to the major Rhine port of Basel.

A true mountain pass excursion over Oberalp, the source of the Rhine, through Romansh-speaking Surselva. Impressive views into the wild Ruinaulta Gorge; Chur, the Rhaetian capital; with the Traubenkocher (warm wind) through the Bündner Herrschaft and on the Rhine dam to the wide Bodensee. Orchards, castles and cheerful tourist chatter along the shores of the green and silver shimmering «Schwabian Sea».
