The tour starts at the Arosa railway station and first takes you on an asphalt road to Untersee. There the well-prepared winter hiking trail starts, winding through the snow-covered forest, along the Plessur river and the railway line of the Rhaetian Railway to Litzirüti. Can you catch a glimpse of the red RHB train on the way? The trail continues through the Schanfigg valley to the Litzirüti train station, where you can also enjoy a culinary treat.  Shortly after Litzirüti, the trail leads down to the wildly romantic banks of the Plessur, from where you can admire the Langwies viaduct from an impressive perspective. Follow the signs to Langwies, from where hourly trains run back to Arosa or to Chur. 

Author’s recommendation

Enjoy a culinary stopover in Litzirüti and don't forget to snap a photo of the Langwies viaduct.
