Travel by Train...

The Arosa railway slowly winds its way down through Chur, past the Stadtmauer, Malteserturm and Obertor, the landmark of the Bündner capital. But the city stroll on rails does not last long. At the city boundary, the Arosa railway changes into the mountain railway and winds its way through the wild Schanfigger valley up to the well-known resort Arosa. On the only 26 km long track the train climbs over a thousand meters.

By the way, the train route Lüen-Castiel-Arosa and retour is included in the Arosa Card during the summer and in the winter it is included in the ski and hiking pass.
