This easy winter hike starts at "Untersee" (Lake) in Arosa and winds through the forest on a well-prepared path to Litzirüti. On the way you walk along the Plessur and catch a glimpse of the Arosa line of the Rhaetian Railway.  The wide hiking trail is very suitable for families and is also a highlight as a pleasant ride on a toboggan. In Litzirüti the hike ends directly at the railway station, from where you can take the hourly train back to Arosa or to Chur.

Author’s recommendation

Bring the sledge and enjoy the winding route through the forest.

The Rhaetian Railway runs every hour from Chur to Arosa (also in the opposite direction). When you arrive at Arosa train station, you catch the bus direction Untersee and leave the bus at the bus station "Untersee" where you'll find the starting point of the hike. If you'd like to start the hike directly at the train station it's about 15 minutes to the starting point at the "Untersee".

 In Litzirüti the hike ends directly at the railway station, from where you can take the hourly train back to Arosa or to Chur.

Getting there

From Chur along the winding Arosastrasse to the end of the valley to Arosa. Turn left at the gas station (entrance of the village) in direction "Untersee" or leave your car at one of the parkings in Arosa and continue by bus/foot.

In Litzirüti the hike ends directly at the railway station, from where you can take the hourly train back to Arosa or to Chur.
