Details

Description

The picturesque village of Tschiertschen was voted the most beautiful mountain village in Graubünden. From there, the trail continues over the Löser towards Ochsenalp. On the way you will meet numerous hikers and bikers. The Ochsenalp is about halfway along the trail and is a good place to stop for a rest. Alternatively, there is a fireplace at Rot Tritt or at Ober Prätschsee. After the Ochsenalp, the route via the Scheidegg instead of the Rot Tritt is a good choice. From Prätschli the local bus goes to Arosa railway station. If you want to walk to the centre, you can take the forest path over the Scheitenböden to the station. Once in Arosa, overnight guests benefit from the Arosa all-inclusive card.

 

Geheimtipp

Above Prätschli you have the option of making a detour via the Arlenwald. The Arosa Bärenland is located at the middle station - this diversions is worthwhile.

This section is not dangerous and is very well frequented, not only by hikers but also by mountain bikers. As the road is wide, you hardly ever get in each other's way.
