The ascent to Brambrüesch you conquer on this tour very comfortable, namely with the gondola from Chur. Arrived on the high plateau, exactly 1'000 meters above the city of Chur, you walk leisurely from the mountain station straight ahead past several mountain restaurants: Battagliahütte, VIVA berg.baiz and Malixerhof. So if you want to enjoy the view on a sun terrace, has a good selection. At the Malixerhof, it finally goes down towards the middle station Känzeli. The path runs parallel to the toboggan run, but is wide enough to accommodate sledgers and hikers. In contrast to the toboggan offer the winter hiking trail works even if there is little or no snow. Following the path gently downhill, you can enjoy the scenery and views. In between, you walk in the shadow of the woods, then come again longer open sections. In the middle section, the panorama into the Schanfigg Valley with Hochwang, Arosa Weisshorn, Strela Pass and Weissfluhgipfel is especially beautiful. Just before you arrive at the Känzeli, the view of the city of Chur and the Grisons Rhine Valley becomes clear. From the middle station Känzeli you can then comfortably hover with the gondola back to the valley.

Answer by Michael Christ  · October 29, 2019 · Chur Tourismus
It's an easy and nice 1h walk. More fun of course is the toboggan run on the same trail. All infos and prices on https://chur.graubuenden.ch/en/activities-experiences/chur-brambruesch-cableways-winter
