On one of the highest 18-hole golf courses in Europe, where caddies do their rounds in summer, cross-country skiers make their tracks in winter. After a leisurely start over an extensive, treeless flat section, a short, steep descent towards Schafwald awaits. Afterwards, the trail again leads flat through the Seebachtobel. This is followed by a longer ascent towards Prätschalp. The trail first passes close to the Langwieser Aussicht. Langwies with its famous viaduct, the Mattjisch Horn and the Sapün and Fondei side valleys can be admired here. Shortly before Prätschalp, the highest point of the trail is reached at just under 1970 metres. Here the cross-country skiers enjoy a view over the Schanfigg valley with its rustic Walser houses. So it's worth taking a break before descending to the Lower Prätschsee. From the lake it is less than two kilometres to the finish.


Visit the Prätschalp alpine hut and enjoy a snack.


Pedestrians and dogs are not allowed on the trail.

Public Transport

The Rhaetian Railway runs from Chur to Arosa and back every hour. The local bus waits for you at Arosa station and takes you in the direction of Prätschli to the cross-country skiing stop.

Anreise Information

From Chur, follow the signs to Arosa. At the entrance to the village, turn right at the petrol station and follow the road. After a few hundred metres you will see the cross-country ski trails on the right.


As there is only a limited number of parking spaces available at the cross-country skiing trails, it is recommended that you park your car in the Ochsenbühl parking garage. The parking garage is right next to a bus stop, from where the local bus will take you in the direction of Prätschli to the start of the trails.
