This short hike through the woods is great for families with smaller kids. It's long enough to spend half a day outside and short enough so everyone can walk it. We saw plenty of squirrels and they did eat the nuts we brought. You have...More

Our favorite walk in Arosa. Although it was icy-cold, the Squirrels were waiting for us. AND the birds. they sometimes scare the squirrels and eat their food! We took it twice and promised each other to never miss it again while in Arosa!

Eichhörnchen are squirrels. The Eichhörnchenweg is a short walk leading through the forest between Prätschli and the center of Arosa. I did it in winter, when the pine trees were full of snow. Very romantic. The path is also good for children, because there are...More
