Tour description

The Mittenberg is a classic among the mountain bike tours around Chur. Start at the Chur train station and cycle out of the city in eastern direction. Follow the Loestrasse, pass by the hospital and branch off right to the Fürstenwald, a ne-arby recreational area of Chur. The Fürstenwald (parking area) is a popular meeting place for outdoor athletes with several biking and running trails. Follow the forest road all the way up to the Mittenberg. In the upper part of the ascent you will find a fireplace with fresh spring water. Up at Mittenberg, you have a wonderful panorama view into the Chur Rhine valley, on the opposite situated house mountain Brambrüesch and the mountains around Lenzerheide and the Bündner Oberland.

The descent route follows a smaller forest trail into direction of Vogelboden – Lürlibad – Lärchenboden – Chur city.


Variante A: Option for the downhill, which first follows the forest road and later on branches off to the left side into a thrilling single track.


Season: March – November
Catering services: Chur

  • Der Frühling ist da: Die Mittenberg-Trails sind bereits trocken und schneefrei. Ich habe mich bei der Abfahrt für die sonnenseitig gelegene Abfahrt via St. Luzikappelle entschieden (oben zuerst Richtung Maladers, nachher rechts weg und dann den Abzweiger links zur Kappelle, später wieder kurz rechts hoch über einen Panoramatrail und schliesslich auf schmalen Trails Richtung Arosarank). Eine sehr lohnende Variante (vor der Kappelle aufgrund der Ausgesetztheit besser kurz absteigen und stossen).
    Tendency: Top
