The Prätschalp lays along winter and summer hiking trails and snow shoe trails. Take a break and enjoy for example a delicious cheese fondue - be it in the cozy Alpenstübli or outside on the sun terrace.
The Alpine farm Prätsch with an agricultural land of 250 ha lies on the municipal district of Arosa and is owned by the civil community of Chur. Around 100 cows of farmers from Chur spend their summer here. The small farmhouse is always happy to welcome guests and serve  traditional dishes on the sun terrace or Fondue dinners in the cosy dining area or also outside!

Opening hours

The Prätschalp is only opened in good weather conditions. Be advised to call before starting your journey.
