It is not by chance that you pass through Tschiertschen-Praden. The village is not located on a through road; however, it is fairly close to Chur (10km) and part of the Arosa-Lenzerheide region at 700m above sea level. The 30-minute bus ride takes you through wildly romantic farm and cultural landscape. Discover the untouched surroundings on a hiking or biking tour. Well marked trails lead to small mountain lakes, fragrant meadows and impressive mountain ranges above 2,000m altitude. Enjoy regional specialities such as the dried Grisons meat from the local shepherds or fresh cheese at the Alp Farur. The few rare mountain farms of today still produce their goods in the traditional style – the taste is prove of their extraordinary artisanal skills.

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.
