The Alpine Path runs from Chur through several Swiss cantons and over a number of passes to St. Gingolph on Lake Geneva.

From the capital of the canton of Graubünden – Chur – it goes from high point to high point to Lake Geneva. The most beautiful mountains of the Bündner and Valais Alps are covered on this long-distance hike. Via the Greina, the route first enters the Ticino and then continues via the Piora and the Nufenen Pass into the Valais. On the way, hikers enjoy the nature of the high mountains, the view of the four-thousand-metre peaks of the Valais and historic places. The famous Great St. Bernard and the Dents du Midi are on the long way. The „Pässewandern” is regarded as a discipline in its own right. It is not about climbing as many peaks as possible. With each pass, the hikers discover a new world, leave another behind and are driven by curiosity.
