Is time only experienced by that constant disappearance, can not do anything against the self-haste and hurry? Is time not rather a miracle that combines thoughts and experiences in terms?

The 'ViaSpluga' from Thusis to Chiavenna: The via Spluga is a culturally historic hiking trail, which is based on the tracks of a two thousand year history of connecting paths between Rhaeto-Romanic, Walser and Lombardy. The roadmap, which continuously follows the traces of ancient roads is divided into stages with overnight facilities and information points and is particularly distinguished by its historical, ethnographic and scientific importance. The trail, with a total length of about 65 km starts in Thusis (720 m), enters the Via Mala and pulls past Reischen, Andeer and the other places of shame through the Roflaschlucht through and Rheinwald, until the village Spliigen (1475 m ), this historically important crossroads of ancient transit routes. From the village the trail climbs south up to the 2115 m summit of the Spliigen to then hinabzuwinden by the Cardinellschlucht and see Giacomo Valley to the 330 m high-lying town of Chiavenna.
... and then just the rock castle: The nameless castle of the lords of Reischen.
In the 13th Century built by Heinrich Reischen under time pressure, the castle Haselstein above Reischen after the space on La Tur had become too small. Even 100 years later avenged the eyesores - Parts of the fundermentlosen castle collapsed and so it happened that the third, unnamed castle of the lords of Reischen was built at the northern end of Reischen.
What remains of this castle are part of the 1.20 m thick walls with loophole and medieval arches. The apartment is located in this same history will track the house and is guaranteed by its castle-like flair romantic moments around the fireplace.
