Schanfigger Höhenweg, 3rd route, Arosa - Sapün

Varied mountain hike with magnificent viewpoints: The third stage of the Schanfigger Höhenweg leads from Arosa and the reservoir via Medergen to Sapün. 

This section is a scenically beautiful hike. On the way from Untersee to the reservoir, you follow the "path of water" and can learn more from the information signs. After that, various alps follow. After Furggaalp, you continue to the old Walser settlement of Medergen. It is idyllically situated on the mountain, and the Alpenrose mountain restaurant invites you to take a rest. Medergen, Sapün and Strassberg were settled in the 13th and 14th centuries. A walk through Medergen is worthwhile, as many lovingly designed details can be discovered. Another scenic highlight is offered on the descent into Sapün. The steep rock face of the Chüpfenflue makes you pause in awe. A little later you reach your destination for the day, the Berghaus Heimeli. With a bit of luck, you can observe deer in the surrounding area from the terrace, or spot chamois in the wall of the Chüpfenfluh.
