Whether it’s hiking or mountain biking, Tschiertschen is the best place to start from.
Numerous hiking trails or high-level routes lead over alps to breathtaking vantage points
and neighbouring valleys. Simply a mountain biker’s paradise!
Tschiertschen is the ideal starting point for many beautiful day and half-day excursions, for example the classic route across the Ochsenalp to Arosa, the mystical route via Lake Urden to the Hörnlihütte, the beautiful route over the Carmenna pass and the Weisshorn to Arosa, the surprising route over the Jochalp to Churwalden or Parpan, the diverse route over Uf Wald and Molinis to St. Peter and the short route over Runcs and Untersäss to the Prader Alp. Tschiertschen offers a mountain hiking network that is 70 kilometres long – without any asphalt trails, free of man-made landscapes for winter sports enthusiasts, free from unsightly snow cannons. In short: unspoilt natural landscapes, which are increasingly difficult to find. More ...
