The Rhaetian Railway runs from Chur to Arosa and back every hour. The local bus waits for you at Arosa station and takes you in the direction of Prätschli to the cross-country skiing stop. In the evening, the regular local bus does not run, but the night express does. This costs CHF 3.00. You can get on and off the bus anywhere along the route between Kulm and Prätschli. (Bus schedule)

Follow the narrow path to the driving range of the Arosa golf course. The start of the night trail is marked with a sign.

Getting there

Once you arrive in Chur, follow the sign posts Arosa. At the village entrance, opposite the petrol station, turn right and continue until you reach the cross-country skiing tracks. Follow the narrow path to the driving range of the Arosa golf course. The start of the night trail is marked with a sign.
