Welcome to bear school!

Learn everything a bear cub needs to know at bear school! On the timetable of the bear school are: Climbing, balancing, jumping, sliding, enjoying the view, tracking and hiding.

If the little ones lack motivation on the hike, the playground at the middle station of the Arosa - Weisshorn cable car is the ideal destination in front of their eyes to get them to keep going. At around 2000 metres above sea level, children can romp around here and really let off steam.

Follow the three paths, the bear paws in different colours will show you the way. You will see: It's quite exhausting to be a bear cub, but it's a lot of fun!

Can you roar like a bear, making the whole forest shake, and dash down a slide as fast as lightning?

Can you crawl through a narrow tunnel without getting out of breath?

Balance on tree trunks without falling?

Come by and feel like a young bear!

At the same time, an adventure trail in Arosa Bärenland has been waiting for you in the immediate vicinity since summer 2020. The "floating" adventure trail with eight viewing platforms, which are connected by suspension bridges, leads from the visitor platform at a lofty height towards the outdoor area north. This is where the rocky part of the Arosa Bärenland enclosure is located. The visitors see the bears from a new perspective and get an exciting insight into the outdoor enclosure north.


Opening hours

The playground is only accessible from June to October. The playground is closed as soon as or as long as there is snow.

Public transport

Take the Rhaetian Railway to Arosa and cross the railway bridge to the valley station of the Arosa - Weisshorn cable car. After about 5 minutes in the gondola, you reach the middle station, in front of which the playground is installed.

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

Getting there

From Chur, take the winding Arosa road to the end of the valley in Arosa.

At the entrance to the village, drive past the ice rink and then along it to the Obersee car park.


At the entrance to the village there are large signs indicating the various parking options. We recommend the Obersee car park. You can find more information at Arosa Parking.
