Prodchopf Lookout Point

The place of power and lookout point with a striking wooden lookout tower offers time and space to relax and recharge your batteries.

On a small, wooded hill, the Prodchopf attracts as a lookout point with extraordinary "furnishing": Next to the traditional alpine cross and benches, there is a lookout tower by the Dutch artist Floris Brasser and a wooden swing. From the Prodchopf there is a uniquely beautiful view of the Bündner Herrschaft and the Rhine valley.

On the plateau next to the tower you can enjoy "uphill" a beautiful view of the Tamina valley with the village of Valens, with the Mapragg reservoir and the imposing Haldenstein Calanda (on the back of which are the village of Haldenstein and the Graubünden cantonal capital Chur).

The Prodchopf is a so-called place of power, i.e. a zone with increased natural energy. This energy can be felt, it has an uplifting and strengthening effect. Stay calm and relaxed at the Prodchopf, take your time and "fill up" with strength for everyday life.


Take the cable car Bad Ragaz to the mountain station Pardiel. From there you can reach the Prodchopf in about 15 minutes by foot on a relaxing walk. From the station a path leads off to the left. Just follow the signs in the direction of Prodchopf.

Tip: Children will be delighted to ride one of the five Heidi gondolas. There is also a barbecue area on the Prodchopf.
