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

On arrival at Arosa station you are directly at the starting point of the hike.

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

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 under Arosa Parking.
