What has long been a tradition in summer is also possible in winter. The Heidi & Gigi Trail connects Arosa with Lenzerheide and vice versa. Along the winter hiking trail you can enjoy the magnificent mountain scenery, use the latest transport facilities such as the Urden cable car and enjoy a meal in one of the beautiful mountain restaurants. The Heidi & Gigi Trail can be tackled both from Arosa and from Lenzerheide. The "LenzerHeidi" and the "Gigi vo Arosa" have gone hand in hand at least since the opening of the Urden cable car. Occasionally, however, the two also visit each other on foot, enjoying wonderful views over mountain peaks and valleys as well as a snack or two in the various restaurants along the way. Follow the connecting path and fall in love with the unique landscape of Heidi & Gigi.
The ascent to the Hörnli is always slightly uphill. For hikers who prefer to complete this section by cable car, there is the option of boarding a Hörnli Express cable car in Innerarosa. The "Urdenbahn" connecting cable car takes you to the Lenzerheide holiday region.

Safety informationWinter hiking poles are an advantage, as the winter hiking trail is very steep in a few sections. Inform third parties about your hike. The winter hiking trail crosses the ski slope in some places. Please pay attention.

Public-transport-friendlyArriving by train in Chur, switch to the Arosa Train. Approx. 1 hour later you'll arrive in Arosa. From there you can take the free local bus to Prätschli where the hike starts. Another option is to take the Gondola right from the train station and shorten the hike by starting at the middle station.
Getting thereFrom Chur, follow the signs to Arosa. At the entrance to the village, you can either leave your car in the car parking or continue towards Prätschli, from where the hike starts.
At the entrance to the village there are large signs indicating the various parking options. We recommend the Obersee car park.
You can find more information under Arosa Parking.
