Fürhörnli

1,300m over the roofs of Graubünden’s capitol Chur, a summit register is waiting for the adventurous bikers entries. Add a detour over Chur’s mountain range to your lengthy tour and enjoy the mix of great views and magnificent trails.

We will start our tour this morning in Parpan, gently beginning our ascent on asphalt roads until we reach Chur’s pass. The first descent starts here. The steep descent, full of roots, will definitely get your adrenaline flowing. The ride downhill is challenging but no match for bikers with good riding technique. The first descent ends in Chur.  

We take a little tour of the town by bike and fill our energy reserves in one of the town’s many restaurants. Now we’re ready for the second part of our tour. From Chur we climb to Fürhörnli. We can either bike the whole way up, or take the postbus as far as Maladers, which saves 400m of elevation. You might want to save your energy for later when the ascent up paved paths turns extremely steep.

The panorama from the top of Fürhörnli is breath-taking. The mountain face falls vertically and we have a fantastic view over the town and the Rhine Valley. As always, the best is saved for last – the trails that take you down 1,300m of elevation into Chur. ther bike the whole way up, or take the postbus as far as Maladers, which saves 400m of elevation. You might want to save your energy for later when the ascent up paved paths turns extremely steep.
