AROSA Bear sanctuary

The Arosa Bear Sanctuary is an unforgettable experience and popular with all age groups. 

During the visit on the platform you will learn about the stories of the bears who have been rescued as well as many other exciting bear facts. The adventure path, the bear mini-golf, the playground at the middle station, the Weisshorn bear photo point and the experience trail are also very exciting. The hunger can be satisfied in the restaurant Brüggerstuba right next to it. 

And by the way: Dogs (on a leash) are also very welcome in the Arosa Bear Sanctuary! 
Excluded is the adventure path.
