Show all 6 images
From the Obersee you start in the direction of Maran, then continue to the lower Prätschsee to Scheideggseeli and at the end to the upper Prätschsee. Afterwards you will return to the village on beautiful paths. This part of the "10-Lake-Fun" passes four of the lakes. At the outflow of each lake you will find a board that provides information about the lake.
The Obersee is situated at 1'739 m.a.s.l. and is the larger of the two lakes in the middle of the development area of Arosa. Numerous waterfowl and reed birds, as well as diving ducks and most European swimming ducks can be found on the Obersee.
The Lower Prätschsee is situated at 1,910 m.a.s.l., a bit below the Upper Prätschsee and a bit hidden, but accessible via a narrow path.
The Scheideggseeli is located at 2,080 m.a.s.l. in an alpine pasture in the alpine zone at the Scheidegghalde. Wild ducks breed at this lake from time to time, although the secluded water body offers no natural protection for the clutch.
The Upper Prätschsee is located at 1,987 m.a.s.l., as the name suggests, in the Prätsch area. A fireplace with wood is available for everyone at the lake.
Arosa strives to provide hikers with a well-developed and marked network of hiking trails. Please heed the rules and signposting. You will find further helpful tips under the hiking information.

(In Maran you can also do the last part of the hike with the local bus)
The Rhaetian Railway runs every hour from Chur to Arosa (also in the opposite direction). Directly at the train station in Arosa is already the start of the hike - the Obersee.
At the entrance to the village you will find a parking information board. There are parking spaces next to the train station. The Ochsenbühl parking garage is also within walking distance.
