Along the way, you will learn a lot about the extraordinary engineering achievement of the time and how it was possible to build the road in such a special place.

The hike begins in Thusis at the south roundabout and leads past the north portal of the safety tunnel of the crapteig tunnel. The restored Graubünden fence with stone stelae gives an idea that a special building begins here. Past the former Wegmacher building (built before 1890), the hike goes gently uphill. We explain the fountain and memorial stone we pass and reach the place in front of the Känzeli, which was structurally renovated in the years 2020-2023. The Känzeli with a view into the depths and to the High Raetia shows us that the engineers wanted to build a road that would be beautiful and scenic and that would connect Germany and Italy by almost the shortest route, not only for the transport of goods, but also for travelers.
After the Känzeli we pass through a short tunnel – a sensation for the time. After the tunnel, the road leads cut into the rock along the vertical high gorge wall, which still makes you shudder today, to Rongellen to the post bus station. (4.14 p.m. departure from the post bus at the junction Rongellen to Thusis).
