330 Route 91. WIESEN.
to (2Y2 M.) Frauenkirch (Post, well spoken of), protected from
avalanches by a bulwark, with a picturesquely situated old church.
To the left opens the Sertig-Thal, in which lies Clavadel (see
above). The valley contracts. We cross the Landwasser near the
(ll/2 M.) Spinabad (4816'), a small sulphur-bath (good, though
plain) prettily situated amidst pines, and pass (3/4M.)Gtam(Post),
scattered on the pastures of the right bank. The road then leads through
the picturesque, wooded valley, on the left bank of the stream, in
the direction of the Piz St. Michel (p. 352), to the (2</2 M.) Schmelz-
boden Hoffnungsau (Inn), a foundry disused since 1847. To the
right rise the precipitous pine-clad and stony slopes of the Ziige.
Below the foundry the valley contracts to a wild gorge, through
the perpendicular rocks of which the new road is constructed. The
old road to Wiesen (Ziigenweg), now in disrepair, crosses the
Landwasser to the right. The new road follows the left bank for
3/4 M. more, leads through a tunnel and an avalanche-gallery, and
crosses to the right bank, where it soon begins to ascend. Three
more tunnels and another avalanche-gallery. The *Barentritt, a pro¬
jecting platform on the road-side, 250' above the Landwasser, affords
a striking view of the grand and wild valley, into which the Sdge-
tobelfall, 105' high, is precipitated on the right. The road crosses
two bridges, and ascends in long windings to (23/4 M.) —
12!/2 M. Wiesen, Rom. Tain (4771'; *Hbt.-Pens. Bellevue aud
*Hot.-Pens. Palmy, belonging to the same landlord; pens. 6-7 fr.
at both), on the sunny S. slope of the Rothhornslock, high above
the Landwasser, sheltered from the N. and N.E. winds, and a
health-resort for patients with pulmonary and nervous complaints.
To the S., beyond the deep gorge of the Landwasser, on the green
slopes of the Stulsergrat (8390'), lies Jenisberg. Farther distant are
the huge Tinzenhorn (10,278') and the Pis St. Michel (10,371').
Walks. To the Tiefenlobel (see below), 20 min.; the road commands
a beautiful view of the Tinzenhorn, Piz Michel, and Piz d'Aela; farther
on is (40 min.) Schmitten. Beyond the Tiefentobcl we may descend to('/4hr.)
hodmen, with its ruinous houses; pleasant forest-path thence into the
gorge of the Landwasser, to the Theerhiitle, and to the Leidboden (20 min.);
then either return to (?j* hr.) Wiesen, or cross the stream and traverse fine
larch-forest interspersed with pleasant glades to (1 hr.) Filisur (p. 352). — To
the (35 min.) "Jenisberg Bridge (3694'), 273' above the Landquart. A few paces
to the left, before reaching the bridge, we have a fine view of the KUnzeli
Waterfall. From the bridge a steep ascent to (l'A hr.) Jenisberg (50101); then
by a path, very rough at places, high above the Ziigcnstrasse, with fine
views of the Davos valley, to the (l'/< hr.) Hoffnungsau (see above). —
To the (3/i hr.) "Btirentritt, and by the romantic Ziigenslratse to the
Hoffnungsau foundry and to Davos (see above). — By the old Davos road
(see above), passing the BrUckentobel, Miihletobel, Sagetdbel, and Steigtobel,
to the fl'/a hr.) Sleighalde, an open pasture with an extensive view. (On
the right, below the path, is the considerable central Sagetobel Water¬
fall, which deserves a visit.) — The Wiesener Alp (good forest-path,
D/2 hr.) is a good point of view; a liner is the "Sandhubel (9076'l, ascend¬
ed from the Alp in 3 hrs. (riding practicable).
Beyond Wiesen (1 M.) the road crosses the profound Tiefentobel
(with a large avalanche-bulwark above it), ami passes through a
