Arrival & Parking

Travel as you want

Come by car on the serpentine road or by train with the Rhaetian Railway (RhB). Both ways lead to Arosa, the holiday destination in the Grisons mountains. Here you find more information regarding the RhB schedule and more arrival and parking possibilities in Arosa. Choose your favourite arrival option.

Arrival on Tracks

The Arosa Bahn leisurely rides through Chur like a tramway, passing the city wall, the Malteser Tower and the Obertor, the landmark of the Grisons capital. The city stroll on tracks ends at the city boarder and the train transforms into a mountain railway and winds its way up through the Schanfigg valley all the way to the famous holiday destination of Arosa. On the 26km between Chur and Arosa the train climbs over 1000 metres in altitude.

By the way: The train ride between Lüen-Castiel - Arosa and back is included in the Arosa Card during the summer season and in the ski and hiking pass (only when practicing winter sports) during the winter season.

Schedule SBB/RhB

Chose your departure destination and your departure/arrival time.

...on Wheels

Starting from Chur the 30km serpentine road winds through more than 360 turns and masters an altitude of 1320 metres along the Schanfigg valley until it reaches Arosa about 40 minutes later.

Note: Especially during the winter season it is essential to check the street conditions before setting off. We suggest to also take a look at the traffic information.
