Circular hike around the UNESCO World Heritage monastery of St. Johann Müstair.
Distance 3.5 km
From the monastery, the path leads past the Hotel Chavalatsch in the direction of the schoolhouse. Before the schoolhouse, a road leads off to the left to the Rombach. Before the border is reached, turn left back to the main road. From the main road (BP petrol station Parc Rom), the path leads uphill for a short distance on the opposite side, from where a little later a gentle descent leads directly back to the St. Johann monastery.
