Tips and hintsThe hike also possible during the winter season.
The hike starts with the Weisshorn gondola from Arosa to the middle station. Once at the middle station the path leads through the ski area, passing grazing cows and across flower meadows all the way to the crystal clear and icy cold Schwellisee lake. As of here the return journey to the mountain chapel begins - it is worth visiting the cemetery and taking a glance inside the chapel. The local history museum at the Eggahuus is not far from the mountain chapel. A tour of the museum or even a speech in the old Wals house are always unforgettable experiences. The next bus stop is nearby and the bus ride only a takes a few minutes to arrive back at the starting point.
The Rhaetian Railway leaves Chur to Arosa and back at hourly intervals. The train ride from Chur to Arosa lasts 60 minutes. The Weisshorn gondola bottom station is right next to the train station.
After the visit of the local history museum you can comfortably take the local bus back down to the village centre. The bus leaves every 20 minutes at the bus stop Gada which is located approx. 200m next to the museum.
Getting thereOnce you arrive in Chur, follow the sign posts Arosa. After passing the Obersee lake, turn right behind the bank Credit Suisse. After 30m you reach the gondola bottom station Arosa-Weisshorn.
ParkingThere are only limited parking spots at the Weisshorn gondola. It is recommended to park the car at the car park Ochsenbül or Brüggli. Both car parks are close to a bus stop.
