Waltensburg/Vuorz in the past

Civilization in Waltensburg goes back to the Bronze Age. In the caves around Waltensburg several discoveries have been made of bronze utensils.

In Graubünden, the Swiss canton to which Waltensburg belongs, both German and Rhaeto-Romanic are spoken. That's why most towns and villages have two names on the signs. So Vuorz is the Romanic name for Waltensburg. These two names have different meanings. Vuorz originates from the Latin word for fork. Three streams or brooks, Ladral, Flem and Schmuer, meet at the foot of the Jörgenburg fortress in Waltensburg just like the teeth of a fork. The name Waltensburg came along with other German influences of the Chur diocese.
