The hike starts at the busstop Prätschli. A wonderful hike leads firstly through a dreamy spruce forest to the middle station of the Arosa - Weisshorn gondola. From the calm of the forest you will now get right into the skiing area, which presents itself in summer as green meadows with grazing cows. The hike can be continued to the Schwellisee lake or via the Tschuggen hut down to the mountain chapel and to the village. If you would rather not hike uphill, you have the possibility to shorten the path by using the first section of the Arosa - Weisshorn gondola.

Author’s recommendation

Public transport

Public transport friendly

The Rhaetian Railway leaves Chur to Arosa and back at hourly intervals. The local bus brings you frequently to Prätschli - the starting point of the tour. The final destination is right at the bus stop Gada, from where you can reach the train station by bus.

Getting there

Once you arrive in Chur, follow the sign posts to Arosa and turn right at the entrance of the village (next to the petrol station).

Parking

As there are only a limited amount of parking spaces available at Prätschli, we recommend to leave the car at the car park Ochsenbühl (after the Sports and Conference Centre on the left).
