Hochwang

''Real, relaxing and full of possibilities''

The Hochwang mountainsides between Chur and Arsoa are sun-spoiled and boast plenty of natural snow at 2,533m above sea level. These runs are still insider tips among those skiers looking for real cottage romance and for tracks beyond mass tourism. Be among the few to carve your skis in the well prepared pistes or sink into the untouched powder snow slopes of the Schanfigg.

Barbecue areas for the whole family at beautiful locations. Right in the heart of the forest or at sun-drenched meadows, Pagig and Fatschél has a varied offer of barbecue areas. Comfortable wooden tables and benches invite to relax and enjoy a meal while there is always plenty of fire wood available at the generous fireplaces.

A romantic ride in the Nostalgic Post Bus
Tatoo Tataa… you can hear it before you can see it. The old yellow Nostalgic Post Bus is inching its way up the windy road. Enjoy a slow and relaxed ride, the way our grandparents used to travel. There are scheduled trips from Wednesday to Sunday leaving at the train station St.Peter-Molinis to Tschiertschen or to Fatschél Hochwang. A nostalgic experience you should not miss.

Schanfigg Alpine Trail

The Schanfigg Alpine Trail can be accomplished in six one-day stages and leads along marked hiking routes above the timber line all around the Schanfigg valley. Walking through fragrant Aline meadows, across small creeks, passing loving, crooked, tanned houses means relaxation for body and soul. And the impressive mountain scenery is the best reward for accomplishing the trail by foot. On the Peister Alp you meet grazing cows which take a bemused look at the passers-by. Charming cabins and traditional guesthouses along the hiking route invite hikers to linger and spend the night.

Flora and Fauna

Observe diverse wildlife, rare plants and colourful meadows. It is not uncommon for hikers to see rare plants in the magical and rustic Schanfigg. In spring a protected and magnificient type of orchid called the ‘Frauenschuh’ grows wildly along the hiking paths. The untouched high and low moor bogs in the Hochwang region are hosts to many plant rarities that excite all nature lovers. The rich meadows with their vibrant flora provide an ideal habitat for animals along the mountain slopes. Relax and watch nature unfold.

Family und leisure sports

In the unspoilt nature of Hochwang, recreational athletes and families will find pure winter pleasure. After the ride with the chair lift and the ski lift to the Goldgrouben, 11 fantastically groomed natural snow pistes open up for every level of difficulty. The wide range of slopes guarantees even less experienced skiers a safe skiing experience. A little off the piste is the practice lift, so that even the youngest skiers can try their first turns with their parents or ski instructors. Well-marked and perfectly rolled toboggan runs guarantee fun and good spirits for young and old. Hikers can explore the Hochwang area over snow-covered, wide pastures and through quiet forests, and in the magic of a snow-covered winter landscape they can forget stress and everyday life while snowshoeing.

Nostalgic ski festival "Rötali Run"

The nostalgic ski festival "Rötali Run" at Hochwang is a highlight and is always held on the second last Saturday before the end of the season. A downhill slope for parallel slalom, of course with ski jump, is prepared with great care in the morning before sunrise. Members of the Skiclub Hochwang mark an ideal race track for men and women, who will compete in antiquated clothing and equipment, with original hazel sticks. "A little courage is needed to race down the slope with the slippery skis, with or without edges or staves, and in uncomfortable, old-fashioned clothes," explains a participant in grandfather look. Meanwhile, the Nostalgia Ski Festival attracts not only many nostalgics, but also many interested spectators.
