This hike over Arosa's highest excursion mountain offers an overview of the entire hiking and skiing area. The starting point is the middle station of the Arosa-Weisshorn cable car. From here the trail leads steadily uphill through a meadow and moss landscape with far-reaching views into the Schanfigg valley. The last stitch to the summit from the Sattelhütte (unattended in summer) leads mainly through scree-covered terrain. A 360° mountain panorama and the summit restaurant await you on the Weisshorn. A steep descent towards the Carmennahütte follows with a similar character. The trail leads across meadows back into the valley past the Alpenblick excursion restaurant to Innerarosa. Here, a detour to the Bergkirchli is just as worthwhile as a visit to the Schanfig local history museum (note opening hours).
