BATS, POINTED AND OTHER MICE - SMALL MAMMALS IN AROSA
Small mammals play an important role in our ecosystem. In Arosa many of these small animals are at home with us. Small mammals perform amazing feats for their small body size.
Excursion to the small mammals in Arosa
Not only ibex, deer and marmots have their home in Arosa. Many small mammals have also adapted to the habitat in the Alps and play an important role in the ecosystem. On August 29th at 7 pm, Stefan Eichholzer will take you on a tour to discover some of the small and big secrets of the small mammals. This excursion is aimed at all nature lovers who enjoy the small wonders of nature.
The plant world in Arosa is varied and beautiful. No wonder, if you want to learn more about them. During guided tours of the Alpine Garden, guided hikes and lectures, participants learn more about the plants of the Alps.
Guided tours Alpine Garden
The Maran Alpine Garden is home to countless different plant species that have adapted to the conditions in the mountains in their own way.
The Maran Alpine Garden, at an altitude of around 1800 metres above sea level, is home to around 500 vascular plants. The 4000 square metre Agroscope experimental station can be visited freely during the vegetation period.

Lucky Stone Trail
In 2016 the "Glücksstein-Trail", the new circular route to the Alpine Garden with display boards was opened. Along the theme trail, five habitats, which can also be found in the garden, are picked up again, allowing visitors to compare the beds with their natural surroundings. The quiz on the circular trail is a special attraction for children.
They fly high above us and with their beautiful plumage are wonderful to look at and observe. Birds are interesting animals that are easy to watch. A walk through the forests of Arosa is enough to discover many different birds.
On the squirrel trail there are not only squirrels, but also many birds. With a little patience and a few nuts, these little animals will even fly onto your palm. There are several birdhouses along the way, which makes it really easy to watch the animals.
