A picture book to hike - on the famous squirrel trail children can not only feed the sweet little animals but also find the solution to the quiz along the trail. The trail starts at the first big squirrel standing in front of the Romantic Hotel BelArosa. After crossing the Tomeli Street (underneath Waldhotel National) the trail leads into the forest and ends at the bus stop Maran. Towards the end of the path you may find a large BBQ area with a playground.  The picture book for the squirrel trail is available at the Arosa Tourism Office. 

Author’s recommendation

The fluffy animals love nuts and grains. Hold your hand steady and watch how the animals pick the food out of your palm.

Wir waren im August 2017 mit unseren zwei Girls (8/10) dort, es war sehr schön und die Kinder konnten die Eichhörnchen aus der Hand füttern.
