Brambrüesch-Känzeli-Schlittelweg

A few minutes to go up the mountain on the cable car to then go directly downhill at a racing speed: the ride from Chur’s home mountain, the Brambrüesch, to Känzeli leads through the forests and the Alps with a fantastic view of Schanfigg-Arosa.
It is just one kilometre from the railway station of Chur to the valley station of the modern Brambrüeschbahn cable car. From the town limits, the cable car first stops at the Känzeli mid station and then the gondola continues to the home mountain of Chur – continuously along the ridge and with a view of the town and the Rhine valley of Chur.

The sledding adventure starts at an altitude of exactly 1000 metres above the canton capital, either directly at the mountain station or alternatively a little down from there near the ski lift. The slope features fast downhills, sweeping curves and some straight and relaxing passages as well. On these you are particularly able to enjoy the panorama into the Grisons alpine world: The pristine Schanfigg valley with its Walser villages literally lie at your feet and on the right side of the valley, the Arosa Weisshorn is well visible.

Thanks to the even slope, the sled run is ideal for families and children. As the grand finale before the finish line at the Känzeli mid station, the view once more trails over the valley deep down to Chur below.
