Splügen is a municipality in the district of Hinterrhein in the Swiss canton of Graubünden. On 1 January 2006 Splügen incorporated its neighbouring municipality of Medels im Rheinwald.In 1995, the Swiss Heritage Society bestowed the Wakker Prize to Splügen.HistorySplügen is first mentioned about 840 as cella in Speluca.GeographySplügen has an area, as of 2006, of 60.5km2. Of this area, 38.3% is used for agricultural purposes, while 17.8% is forested. Of the rest of the land, 1% is settled (buildings or roads) and the remainder (42.9%) is non-productive (rivers, glaciers or mountains).The municipality is located in the Rheinwald sub-district, of the Hinterrhein district. It consists of the village of Splügen and since 1 January 2006, Medels im Rheinwald. It is a haufendorf (an irregular, unplanned and quite closely packed village, built around a central square) located on a ridge between the Splügen pass and San Bernardino pass.The Splügen Pass road leads from Splügen to Chiavenna and rises to a height of 2020m. The Italian name for the pass is Passo dello Spluga. The pass is closed in winter nowadays and the whole route hosts a number of historically interesting spots that can be reached on a common multiday hike between Thusis and Chiavenna, passing the two gorges Roflaschlucht and Viamala north of Splügen.
