54 Central Graubünden Panorama Trail

This tour offers an interesting cross section from Lenzerheide through the Schanfigg to Davos. Geology takes priority on the first section, whilst the second follows the footsteps of the Walser settlers. And in the middle, the tourist resort of Arosa beckons.

This two-day hike starts at Lenzerheide with the glistening Heid lake and lush green Alpine pastures. The focal point of the tour is clearly Arosa – which grew from a Walser settlement into today’s tourist destination, at the end of a valley that curves in a semi-circle down to Chur. It’s particularly fascinating to discover Arosa from above, on the Parpan Rothorn. On the descent you cross an almost moon-like landscape. Up above, rust-red ferruginous cliffs dominate (Arosa has a history of ore mining), lower down, at the latest at the Älpli lake, limestone grey mixes with green fields.
