Exciting hike for experienced hikers from the middle station of the Arosa-Weisshorn cable car to the summit - a magnificent view awaits as a reward.

From the middle station of the Weisshorn cable car, the tour starts on the hiking trail towards Innerarosa. After about 200m you will find the turnoff towards the Weisshorn summit, from where the trail climbs steeply uphill. If you need a break, you can rest on the sunny terrace of the Sattelhütte. Now it is not far until the destination is reached. The reward is a breathtaking panoramic view of the mountain world.

 

Author’s recommendation

Take an Arosa wishing ribbon and tie it to the fur of the Arosa Weisshorn bear on the summit plateau. Don't forget to make a wish while you're at it. The colourful wishing ribbons are available from the Weisshorn cable car on the Weisshorn summit.
