Chur is the oldest city in Switzerland. Arosa is one of the most beautiful places in Switzerland. In between there is a 1000 metre difference in altitude and an hour's train ride of the most wonderful kind. 19 tunnels, dizzying passages over 41 bridges and the world-famous Langwieser viaduct crown the journey with the Rhaetian Railway through the picturesque Schanfigg.
On only 26 kilometres the Arosa Line climbs 1000 metres. As a tram she strolls through Chur - past the city wall, the Malteser Tower and the Obertor. Minutes later the train turns through untouched nature and the mountain landscapes of the Schanfigg - a primeval valley in which picturesque farming villages alternate with strange rock formations. Arrived in Arosa, the excursionists can expect a magnificent mountain world with many sights and leisure opportunities.
