The Tschuggen Collection

A summer retreat in the mountains

Discover

Fresh air, crystal-clear lakes and pristine forests: it is these things and so much more that make an Arosa summer so special. This is why the Tschuggen Grand Hotel keeps its doors open all season long – for relaxing getaways away from the scorching summer heat.

Summer in Arosa

Arosa Bear Sanctuary

For bears rescued from poor captive conditions, the Arosa Bear Sanctuary offers a second chance at life in a species-appropriate habitat. Nestled within the mountain landscape, the sanctuary offers pastures, bushes, rocks and forests where the bears can (re-)learn their natural behaviours as visitors watch on. Learn more about the fascinating stories of bears Amelia, Meimo, Jamila and Sam on the adventure trails, at bear mini-golf and in the adventure playground.

The squirrel trail

This child-friendly discovery trail features an abundance of wildlife as well as a playground with water wheel. Starting from Tomeli Street, the walk leads into the forest and ends at Maran. As its name suggests, it offers plentiful opportunities to greet the squirrel inhabitants of Arosa, who venture close to the path and are tame enough to eat out of the hands of guests of all ages. Remember to take nuts – preferably with shells – to feed your new furry friends.

The lakes

Plunging into the cool water is the perfect way to cool off on a warm summer’s day. Arosa is characterised by its abundance of lakes, as many as 10 of which can be reached via hiking trails. The lido on the Untersee (‘Lower Lake’) offers stand-up paddleboarding, a trampoline and a children’s paddling pool and is among the area’s most attractive bathing spots. Enjoy a swim or hop on a pedalo to explore the connected Obersee (‘Upper Lake’). Arosa’s higher-altitude mountain lakes have a water temperature of around 10 degrees –a guaranteed adrenaline rush for daring dippers.

Biking

The Bike Kingdom Arosa Lenzerheide delivers on its name, with varied trails of all difficulties that cross-cross the Arosa landscape. All trails are created using local Grisons earth, stone and wood. In Arosa’s Bear Mountains, so named for their furry inhabitants, bikers can discover the 6-kilometre Hörnli Trail and the Skill Center at the valley station of the Hörnli Express. The latter is a particularly good option for families.

Hiking

Arosa’s unique location sets it apart from other holiday resorts. When you hike from the door of the Tschuggen Grand Hotel, you’re already some 1,800 metres above sea level. Whether you’re tracing the origins of local myths, meandering through the shady forests of Arosa or tackling a high-altitude ascent to crystal-clear mountain lakes or mountain peaks, you can expect spectacular mountain views at every turn. The Arosa-Lenzerheide hiking area provides visitors with 140 well-signposted hiking trails as well as numerous mountain huts serving Grisons specialities.
