This tour starts by bike at the Obersee lake and continues towards Maran-Prätschli and then via the Weisshorn middle station to the Carmenna hut. After a short ascent you reach the Hörnli and the Hörnli hut, a restaurant that is also open during the summer season. It presents a perfect spot for a quick break. Afterwards a single trail with a short bike-carrying passage leads to the beautiful Urdensee lake. As of here the road conditions becomes better again and just before Tschiertschen it brings you back to the road that leads to Arosa via the Ochsenalp. After the Ochsenalp it is worth taking a detour via the Prätschalp with the last single trail loaded with roots. Guaranteed fun!

Public transport:

Slowly, a bit like a tramway, the Arosa-train cruises through Chur, passing the city walls, the Malteser tower and the Obertor (gate), the landmark of Grisons capital. But soon the stroll on tracks across the city ends. At the city boarder the tramway changes into a mountain railway and climbs through the wild Schanfigg valley all the way up to the well-known holiday destination Arosa. On only 26km of length the trains ascents over one thousand altitude metres.

 

Getting there:

As of Chur it takes about 40 minutes to climb the curvy street all the way up to Arosa. The Schanfigg road leads across the valley and during the 30km ascent and 360 turns it overcomes 1,320 metres of altitude.

 

Parking:

The car park Ochsenbühl is located right next to the starting point. The parking fee totals CHF 6.00 for a whole day.
