Nature and fun

A route full of experiences

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.

To the menu

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?
