Along the right bank of the Rhine via Felsberg and Tamins, this tour first leads to Reichenau, where the confluence of the Vorderrhein and Hinterrhein is located, which can be seen impressively from the bridge. The tour continues picturesquely over the plateau of Bonaduz and Rhäzüns until you finally reach the Domleschg at Rothenbrunnen. Now follows a magnificent round tour through the southern-looking valley, which is characterized by rolling hills, orchards and numerous castles. A landscape that invites you to explore it on an e-bike. Again and again, the view sweeps over impressive castles, palaces and castle ruins - from Juvalt Castle near Rothenbrunnen to Hohen Rätien Castle near Sils, they characterize the Domleschg landscape. Lake Canova near Paspels invites you to take a refreshing dip in the water (bathing season from May to mid-October). The trail continues along the Polenweg with a view of the Rhäzünser Rheinauen, which are among the most intact floodplain landscapes in Switzerland and are of national importance. Behind the golf course of Domat/Ems with a view of the "Tumas" (the striking hills that originate from landslides and are under nature protection) then follows the last stretch back to the Alpine City of Chur.


From Chur on the Rhine route 2 to Bonaduz. There ride across the plateau to Rhäzüns and along the road to Rothenbrunnen. Now follow the Graubünden Route 6 to Thusis and on to Sils. The return journey then follows through the hilly landscape along the castles and via Canova Lake back to Rothenbrunnen. From there on the Graubünden Route 6 back to Chur.
