Trin

Trin is a place to spend time. Where sights such as the stunning Rheinschlucht (Rhine Gorge), Crestasee lake or Alp Mora with its glacier mills await discovery either on foot or by bike.
Trin lies on the sunny southern slopes of Surselva, guarded by two castle ruins. Those who come here with public transport we recommend taking the bus that runs regularly from Chur, as the stop is discovered in Vorderrhein, almost 300 metres below the village. Thanks to the tunnel, which carries traffic past the village on the main Kantonsstrasse road, Trin remains free of transit traffic. The small Digg community bribes with beautiful views over orchards, the castle hill and valley below until Chur.

Geographically, the region is rugged and varied, ranging from the rugged landscapes of the anterior Rhine, over settlement zones, up to the Maiensäss and Alps, culminating in surrounding mountain ridges that reach their highest point at a height of 3,247 metres. Many sights in the area invite visitors to linger a few days in Trin and discover all its beauty.

Around 10,000 years ago, the biggest landslide in the history of the Alps took place in the region of Flims. Several hundred-feet-high piles of debris tumbled into the valley, making the Rhine a long dammed lake. Over thousands of years, it then cut a swath through the fallen rock, thus shaping the vast landscape of the Rhine Gorge (Ruinaulta), the Grand Canyon of Switzerland. The Vorderrhein meanders between bizarre rock erosions, 300-meter-high walls and a variety of alluvial forests, where rare birds nest and orchids bloom. You can explore the force of this unique landscape under your own steam, whether by foot on the hiking trail, by bike, or in close contact with the water per canoe or raft boat. The gorge is served by the Rhätischen Bahn, which also transports canoes and boats.

In the Trin region the hiking path leads through the changing scenery of pine forests, meadows and uncompromising landscapes, which are organically farmed. And wild deer, stags or a fox have been observed on many an early-morning walk. Further discovery tours on foot or by bike lead over the Alp Mora, with its curious water-filled rock ponds, and to the Crestasee lake. The so-called glacier mills emerged over centuries, caused by the constant friction of stones and gravel in the rocky bed of the Maliensbach stream. Another unforgettable experience is a cool dip in the crystal clear water of the underground-fed lake, surrounded by dense pinewood forest. The refurbished guesthouse close by, natural pool with wooden pier, changing rooms and toilets provide the appropriate infrastructure. In winter Trin offers a varied cross-country skiing area, with over 12 km of mostly flat or slightly hilly track, suitable for classic langlauf and skating. From the valley station, the popular resorts Flims, Laax and Falera are reached in around 15-25 minutes with the PostBus from Trin.

Highlights

  • Rheinschlucht:The Grand Canyon of Switzerland is discovered in a number of ways on land or water.
  • Crestasee: Plans to drain the lake failed and today the idyllic natural pool bribes with its crystal-clear waters.
  • Alp Mora glacier mills: Round water-filled hollows in the rock at an altitude of 2,000 metres above the sea.
