The Arosa Bear Sanctuary is an experience for young and old. The inhabitants of the Arosa Bear Sanctuary are at the centre of attention an highlight of every Arosa visit. 

The visitor platform of the Arosa Bear Sanctury offers the ideal place to watch the bears and enjoy the breathtaking mountain panorama of Arosa.

Various interesting elements convey knowledge about animal protection, bears and invite you to an exciting visit. The information is suitable for both adults and children and rounds off the visit to Arosa Bear Sanctuary perfectly.

Fun and games should not be missed out in the Arosa Bear Sanctuary. The minigolf course with probably the most beautiful Aussiht in the world tells the story of bear nutrition in a playful way. The aim is to overcome the twelve obstacles on the way to the next winter rest with as few strokes as possible.

The bear school playground tells the children what bear children must be able to do. Like a real bear, the children move and climb through the playground. A special highlight.
