Passing deep gorges, high mountains, and historic villages, the ViaSpluga leads over the Splügenpass to Italy. In this Collection, we show you the old transit route over the Alps with the help of Erwin Dirnberger, the storyteller of the ViaSpluga.

Erwin Dirnberger knows the history of the 42-mile (68 km) long hiking trail from Thusis to Chiavenna like no other and he would like to share his fascination for the ViaSpugla with you. That’s why he developed an open-air show where he resurrects the history of hemmers, merchants, soldiers, and shopkeepers in shows along the transit route. You can meet the narrator on one of the four stages with antique props from his museum, the Casa Storica in Andeer.

In addition to the ViaSpugla which takes you through the breathtaking Viamala, up the spectacular winding serpentines of the Splügen Pass, offering you unforgettable views of the Cardinello Gorge, this Collection also shows you seven other experiences in Graubünden.
You can experience the region in all its diversity on exciting themed trails, guided hikes or picturesque panoramic trails.



You can find even more adventures and special experiences in Graubünden in the Engadine such as running the Bernina Tour with trail runner Julia Bleasdale. She has lost her heart to the Engadine and trail running - running is like flying to her: komoot.com/collection/868/engadin-st-moritz-running-is-like-flying-to-me
