Public transport

The Rhaetian Railway runs every hour from Chur to Arosa (also in the opposite direction). On arrival at Arosa train station, take the Arosa local bus in the direction of Prätschli to the Langlauf/Golf stop.

Getting there

From Chur along the winding Arosastrasse to the end of the valley to Arosa. At the entrance to the village turn right towards Prätschli. Above Maran there are limited parking spaces.


At the entrance to the village there is a large signposting with the various parking facilities. As there are only a limited number of parking spaces available at the Maran, it is recommended that you park your car in the parking garage Ochsenbühl. Directly next to the car park is a stop for the local bus that will take you comfortably to the Alpine Garden. You can find further information under Arosa Parking.
