Rhine Gorge Illanz-Reichenau

The spring of the Vorderrhein is near the Oberalp Pass.

It joins the Hinterrhein about ten kilometres before Chur and begins the 1320 kilometre journey to Rotterdam.

The gorge (Rheinschlucht) between Ilanz, the first city on the Rhine, and Reichenau near Chur measures about 14 kilometres .
