The Conngraben, today Connbächli, is one of the most important, oldest, longest and still water-bearing ditches in Flims. The Bächli in Graubünden is no longer used commercially today. Equipped with sturdy shoes, you can explore the 6 km long Bächli during a walk with the whole family.
Due to the many leaves, the Connbächli is closed.
Start of the hike
Start in Flims Waldhaus at the Caumasee car park. The route runs from there to the start of the Connbächli to Conn - you should allow about an hour for the 3.2 km.
When you see the large clearing of Conn, you have almost reached your destination. Once you have arrived, you can rest and refresh yourself in the Conn restaurant.
The Connbächli crosses the footpaths at five points, at each of these crossings you have the option of shortening the hike.
From Conn it goes back via the Caumasee to the Flims Waldhaus, for these 2.5 km it takes about 40 minutes on foot.
Alternatively, a horse-drawn carriage can be reserved by telephone: +41 81 911 12 31
The viewing platform
One of the highlights on the route is the Il Spir viewing platform at Conn, which extends over several floors.
Once you have mastered the steps, you can gaze freely like a bird over the Rhine Gorge. You want more of this?
You can get a locally made Schiffli at the guest information in Flims Laax Falera or at the mountain railway information at the Laax Murschetg valley station.
The Connschiffli is available with a jute bag for CHF 22.00.
Arrival by car: parking spaces are available near Lake Cauma or in the STENNA park house at the Flims valley station.
By public transport: Take the Postbus or the Flims Laax Falera Shuttle to the bus stop Flims Waldhaus Caumasee.

The 6-kilometre-long Connbächli has been used since the early Middle Ages to water the cattle in Conn and is still considered a piece of cultural heritage in the municipality of Flims. The forest path is also suitable for trail running.
