The Schanfigg region is characterized by the two important towns of Chur and Arosa at the entrance and

at the end of the valley. In between there are small and medium-sized villages, which despite the tourist

have retained their original character in Arosa. Simple, harmonious wooden houses,

surrounded by meadows, hedges and larch forests, line along the winding

Mountain Road. Popular excursion destinations are the mountain lakes, the old Walser settlements (Strassberg im

Fondei, Sapün and Medergen) and the mountain peaks worth discovering such as Montalin and Mattjisch

horn. Experience a varied cultural landscape on the Schanfigger High Path.

Let yourself be pampered in the rustic Bergbeizli or enjoy a picnic in the middle of

a unique alpine flora. The Schanfigger High Path starts at the Meiersboden in Chur and

leads over marked hiking trails to Tschiertschen and Arosa, then to Medergen

and then above the forest border via Sapün, the Fondei and Hochwang back to Chur.
