his half-day tour rewards you with a tremendous 360° mountain panorama on the Weisshorn summit. The steep ascent and descent of the summit should not be underestimated.

This hike over Arosa's highest excursion mountain offers an overview of the entire hiking and skiing area. The starting point is the middle station of the Arosa-Weisshorn cable car. From here the trail leads steadily uphill through a meadow and moss landscape with far-reaching views into the Schanfigg valley. The last stitch to the summit from the Sattelhütte (unattended in summer) leads mainly through scree-covered terrain. A 360° mountain panorama and the summit restaurant await you on the Weisshorn. A steep descent towards the Carmennahütte follows with a similar character. The trail leads across meadows back into the valley past the Alpenblick excursion restaurant to Innerarosa. Here, a detour to the Bergkirchli is just as worthwhile as a visit to the Schanfig local history museum (note opening hours).
