Turn-by-turn directions

In the footsteps of the knights along the 12-kilometre-long knight round. The less demanding hike along the castles, palaces and ruins of Laces, Morter and Coldrano. You will pass the ruins of Obermontani Castle, which was built in 1228 by Albert II of Tyrol as a fortress against the bishops of Chur. Today the castle is privately owned and therefore not accessible. The same path leads to the ruins of Untermontani Castle, where the original manuscript of the Song of the Nibelungs was found; today the manuscript is in the Berlin State Archives. You start the hike in Latsch and continue to the IceForum past Bierkeller and then follow trail no.5A past castles, palaces and ruins. Then you come from Morter to Coldrano and follow trail no.3 back to the start point in Latsch.
