Burgruine Tschanüff
The ruins of The Castle of Chanüff, the landmark of Ramosh, are witnessto an eventful and impressive history that is firmly linked to the whole region. Surrounded by a unique flora and an almost steppe-like vegetation, the ruin stands on its castle hill.


Majestic and with great expressiveness – it has been more than 800 years since this imposing castle was first mentioned in a document. For centuries, this building was considered a strategically central location to secure the then important market routes through the Engadine. Founded in 2001, the Fundaziun Tschanüff has set itself the goal of securing the ruins of the castle in several stages and saving the walls, which were built at that time, with solid, meticulous and precisely built walls, from disintegration. In recent years, three stages have already been successfully completed.

The fourth and final stage is now to be completed and completed. The existing structure of the castle ruins of Tschanüff can thus be preserved and the historical monument of national importance can be reopened to the public. The fourth stage of construction is planned for 2018. The apprentices of the Bündner Baumeisterverband will again carry out part of the safety work. Apart from the support contribution of the canton of Graubünden, the project will be financed exclusively through the Fundaziun Tschanüff.
