You walk through the village across the river 'Landquart' in the direction of Valzeine. There is a possibility to stop off at the restaurant 'Sporti' for some refreshment. Behind the bottom end of the cable railway Grüsch-Danusa (only running in winter) starts the path which leads to Valzeina. In the gorge 'Mühli-Tobel' you can find out what it is all about the 'Mördertöbeli' and what terrible things happened in the year 1695 ..... You then cross the dim to get on the side of Valzeina and walk on the little used road out of the valley. Again you cross the river 'Landquart' and soon after the brook 'Taschinas'.

Now youhave the opportunity to relax at the Hotel Grüsch where you can have a swim in the open-air swimming pool or enjoy an ice-cream on the terrace. It is not far to get back to the station now. After about 500 metres you turn left in the direction of the village and walk along the street up to the station.

The saga abouot 'Mördertöbeli' goes like this: In 1685 the young pastor Peter Walser. citizen of Grüsch became successor of pastor Johannes Jecklin and was chosen to become pastor for the communities Grüsch and Valzeina. It was his first parish and unfortunately also his last one. As a pastor he criticized the deplorable state of affairs at that time. Soon he lived in enmity with a lot of people, also with the nobility of his native village Grüsch. His opponents were even after his blood. It is said that a squire finally shot the pastor at the place called 'Mördertöbeli'. However, the proofs are missing ....
