The highest mountain in the Arosa region, accessible by cable car, offers impressive views over Chur as well as the Alps of Graubünden as far as Piz Bernina looking south.

The majestic Weisshorn lies almost 1,000 meters above Arosa’s Untersee lido – common to both are free admission, or rather rides in summer with free trips up the mountain courtesy of the Arosa-Card. The modern and futuristic summit restaurant is a great place of interest since winning the 2013 architectural award for outstanding architecture – and rightly so!

Two footpaths via Sattelhütte or the Carmenna Pass lead back to Arosa through alpine meadows –alternatively, you can hike along the mountain trail as far as the Hörnli Hut, where cable-car connections then take you back to the valley.
