On this learning path you will come into contact with the most important aspects of the two leitmotifs "World in Motion" and "Moving the World". The interactive boards introduce you to the subject matter step by step and invite you to make your own assumptions, assess, estimate, infer, grasp and observe. The basic information on the subject is presented on the boards.  With the Arosa Card, you can make your way back comfortably on the Rhaetian Railway.
