Guided tours Alpine Garden

The Maran Alpine Garden is home to countless different plant species that have adapted to the conditions in the mountains in their own way.

The Maran Alpine Garden, at an altitude of around 1800 metres above sea level, is home to around 500 vascular plants.  The 4000 square metre Agroscope experimental station can be visited freely during the vegetation period.

The Alpine Garden is in hibernation. The next guided tours will be held in the summer months of 2022 on Tuesdays at 2:30 pm.

Lucky Stone Trail

In 2016 the "Glücksstein-Trail", the new circular route to the Alpine Garden with display boards was opened. Along the theme trail, five habitats, which can also be found in the garden, are picked up again, allowing visitors to compare the beds with their natural surroundings. The quiz on the circular trail is a special attraction for children.

Mushroom picking

In the beautiful nature of the Arosa mountains you can find many different types of mushrooms. Searching for the hidden mushrooms in the deep forests of Arosa is a great experience for everyone.

However, there are a few rules that must be observed. Mushrooms have a closed season that runs from the 1st to the 10th of each month. During this time, we ask you not to pick mushrooms. Outside the closed season, 2 kg per person per day are allowed. With these measures, we can continue to benefit from the plentiful variety of different mushroom species in the future.

During a half-day outdoor course on Thursday mornings, the children gain their first insights into biology, zoology, physics, astronomy and geography in a playful way. How are the colours of the rainbow arranged? How do I find out what the mountain peaks near Arosa are called? Which alpine flowers are protected? Do the bears only eat meat or are they even vegetarian? These and many other phenomena are demonstrated or explained with simple experiments in nature.

Arosa is full of science

The sustainable and sensitive handling of the alpine basis of life serves as a model and the academy would like to contribute with its offers to the protection of animals, nature and ecosystems. The adaptation of the level to the respective previous knowledge ensures an entertaining and informative learning success. Initial offers are initially aimed at locals, holiday guests and school classes. Later on, professional groups such as gamekeepers or tourism professionals will follow, who will be offered training and further education opportunities.

Further information can be found in the Arosa Bear Land, the Arosa Nature Laboratory or at Arosa Tourism. We would be pleased to accept your registration online or at the guest information desk at Arosa Tourism.
