Arrival to Andermatt
Andermatt – Disentis
The clear source of the Rhine rises at the Tomasee, not far from the Oberalp pass, the biggest “obstacle” on the Rhine-Route, which is why casual bikers start their trip in Disentis. In Val Tujetsch lies one of the richest and most fascinating sources of mineral deposits in the Alps and also the monastery village of Disentis.
Disentis – Ilanz
Surselva – «above the forest» – Graubunden’s largest Romansch-speaking region. The wild gorge of the Vorderrhein is awe-inspiring – Switzerland’s Grand Canyon.
Ilanz – Bad Ragaz
Chur, the oldest city north of the Alps, has the highest density of restaurants. Spend a moment in this city before continuing your path along the tranquilly flowing river. In the evening, Maienfeld awaits you, home of the famous Blauburgunder wine.
Bad Ragaz – Buchs
The Bündner Herrschaft, Graubunden’s fertile garden and winery lies on a mound of slate detritus. It is also the home of Heidi, Geissenpeter and the Alpöhi.
The St. Galler Rheintal is an area often cosseted by the warm föhn wind. Much land has been won by the correction of the Alpenrhein waters in Rheintal. This has also created Europe’s largest freshwater delta with a wealth of birdlife.
Departure or extension
The height profile of the Rhine-Route is very steep at the beginning – because the Oberalp Pass and the alpine district of Surselva are followed by the spectacular panoramic stretch through the «Swiss Grand Canyon»: the wildly romantic Rhine Gorge. Afterwards you ride – in a jaunty up and down – through the wine growing region of the Bündner Herrschaft. From Bad Ragaz however the route generally follows the Rhine.
