After a hike through the pine forest from "Prätschli", continue on the winter hiking trail from the middle station (Arosa-Weisshorn cable car) via Sattelalp in the direction of the Carmennahütte. This hike is a section of the Heidi & Gigi hiking trail. You can therefore follow the signposts from Sattelalp onwards. From the Carmennahütte you  return (same way) until you turn right in the direction of the restaurant Alpenblick and then reach Innerarosa.

Author’s recommendation

On arrival at the Carmennahütte, you can relax in one of the sun loungers and be served while sunbathing.

Public transport

Public-transport-friendly

The Rhaetian Railway runs every hour from Chur to Arosa (also in the opposite direction). The free local bus takes you comfortably to the Prätschli bus stop from where the winter hike starts. 

Getting there

From Chur along the winding Arosastrasse to the end of the valley to Arosa. Turn right at the village entrance in front of the petrol station and follow the signposts to Prätschli. Since there are not many parking possibilities at Prätschli you can also leave your car in the parking "Obersee" and take the local bus from there. 

Parking

At the entrance to the village there are large signs indicating the various parking options. We recommend the Obersee car park.

You can find more information under Arosa Parking.
