Winter hiking and snowshoe walking

More than 40 km of specially prepared hiking and walking paths lead you directly from Arosa Kulm Hotel through the Arosa mountain landscape. All the mountain restaurants and huts are accessible to hikers. Ask the concierge for more information and walking maps.


Fun for all the family. Toboggan runs at Prätschli train station (illuminated at night) and Tschuggenhütte–Innerarosa (Kulm). Toboggans are available free of charge at Arosa Kulm Hotel.

Free Ride Mountain

Feeling brave? Or just crazy? Unique in Switzerland and in the middle of the winter sports area. Pure, deep snow, not a prepared piste in sight and easy to reach by train. Meet on the terrace of the Sattelhütte lodge with its beautiful views. Free Ride Mountain – the challenge for those looking for the ultimate kick.


Ask the concierge to book a tennis court. Courts are available a few steps from Arosa Kulm Hotel or in the tennis hall near the town entrance.
