#1: Breakfast on the peak

We are convinced that breakfast simply tastes better on the mountain top than in the lowlands. You can enjoy culinary treats for the first meal of the day at the 360° panoramic restaurant at the Weisshorn and in the Hörnli hut.

#2: Bar tour

The Bucket List for a food lover must, without doubt, include the Bar Tour through Arosa. After starting in the Güterschuppen, you make it to the Overtime ice hockey hangout at the lower end of the Poststrasse, then work through the wines in the Vinothek to exotic drinks in the Wunderbar. So, how’s it looking, do you want more? We say «Viva!».

#3: Carriage ride

How can you enjoy the mountain panorama without having to walk far? In a comfortable carriage of course! Overtake the sweaty hikers on the panoramic trails! The carriage awaits at the car park by the Obersee lake and will take you through Arosa.

#4: Sweet moments

If you are holidaying in the mountains, you have to have energy. So we are convinced that you can enjoy dessert in Arosa before, during and after your hike. How else would you be able to try out the legendary apple strudel at Gspan, the home-made cream slices at the Alpenblick and the Hörnli hut, or the one-of-a-kind nut cake in Gadient’s Genuss Puur?

#6: Burger special

On the sun terrace by Hof Maran, in Gadient’s Gnuss Puur, or Güterschuppen? We asked the locals where the best burgers are but there was no clear winner. The fact is: the selection of fantastic burgers in Arosa is as varied as the burgers themselves. Test them out yourself and let us know where you have eaten the best burgers!

#8: Snake bread

What could be better than the 5-course meal you enjoyed last night? Home-made snake bread in the outdoor kitchen of course! It is no secret that the atmosphere around a meal is just as important as the taste itself. So, we promise you: your snake bread has never tasted better than when baked at one of the idyllic campfire places in and around Arosa.
