The Hörnli Express takes you comfortably up 664 metres in altitude from the valley station to the Hörnli mountain station.


The gondola "Hörnli Express" takes you in a comfortable ride directly up to the Hörnli.

The 6.8 km long Hörnli Trail was opened in autumn 2018. During the gondola ride, you may be able to observe sunbathing marmots as well as skilled bikers. The new Hörnli Trail is unique in the Alpine region. The topographical conditions on the Hörnli are unique and predestined for a flow trail that can be ridden by practically all skill levels, including families.

Once you have reached the top, we recommend walking up to the Hörnli mountain restaurant and enjoying the wonderful view of the mostly crystal-clear Lake Urden while enjoying a regional delicacy.

Public transport

The Rhaetian Railway runs every hour from Chur to Arosa (also in the opposite direction).

Take the public bus at the Arosa Trainstation to the Hörnli bus stop and you are already at the valley station of the Hörnliexpress.

Getting there

From Chur, take the winding Arosa road to the end of the valley in Arosa. From the village entrance, follow the village road to the Hörnli valley station, where there is a public car park. Alternatively, you can park your car in the Brüggli car park in Innerarosa.

Road condition


At the entrance to the village there are large signs indicating the various parking options. We recommend parking directly at the valley station. Alternatively, you can park your car in the Brüggli car park in Innerarosa. From there you can take the public Arosa bus directly to the valley station or walk 5 minutes to the Hörnli Express.

You can find more information under Arosa Parking.
