This trail starts at Prätschli and continues through the open forest along the Prätschsee lake all the way to the Prätschalp where it is highly recommended to enjoy a snack and the stunning view. Then the trail keeps going to the Scheidegg - a trail far away from noise and stress.

Author’s recommendation

You can get from the village to Prätschli comfortably on the free local bus. Enjoy a stopover in the Prätschalp.

Public transport

Public-transport-friendly

The Rhaetian Railway leaves Chur to Arosa and back at hourly intervals. From there take the local bus to Prätschli.

Getting there

Once you arrive in Chur, follow the sign posts to Arosa. Turn right at the entrance of the village opposite the petrol station and follow the street until the end.

Current road situation

Parking

There is only a limited number of parking spots at Prätschli. It is therefore recommended to park the car at the parking garage Ochsenbühl and to take the local bus to Prätschli.
