Viamala or Via Mala (which in Romansh literally means “bad path”) is an ancient and notorious section of a path along the Hinterrhein River between Zillis-Reischen and Thusis in the Canton of Graubünden. This narrow gorge was the most serious obstacle on the approach to two mountain passes: the Splügen and the San Bernardino.
The Via Mala was used by the German film director Werner Herzog as a location in his 1976 film Heart of Glass.
