Churer Joch

Tour description

The Churer Joch is a mountain nearby Chur, with an impressive panoramic view down to the city of Chur and the surrounding Rhine valley. It's a a well known hiking area for nature lovers with a very rich alpine flora. The starting point is in Chur, while the descent takes you to the handsome mountain village of Tschiertschen. From there, you can take the Postbus, that takes you back to Chur in a short driving time.


Variante A: Take the city bus no. 9 to Meiersboden.
Variante B: Shortcut from Runcalier up to the Älpli and further straight up to the Churer Joch. While this route saves quite some distance, it is way steeper and not as picturesque as the original route.
