Winter hiking & snow shoeing Brambrüesch, Chur, Graubünden

Schneeschuhtour Dreibuendenstein 1
Snow shoe tour at Chur's house mountain Brambrüesch

Want to enjoy a winter hike or a walk through the snow covered countryside with snow shoes? 

At Brambrüesch, both is possible.

Winter hiking  

From the top station of the Brambrüesch gondola, first walk to the mountain restaurant Brambrüesch. From there, the 1.25 hours long Edelweiss round walk is signposted, so you can just follow the signs and enjoy the beautiful winter scenery and the panoramic views along the route. This hiking trail passes the mountain restaurant Edelweisshütte, a perfect possibility for a break in the cozy hut or on the sunny terrace. 

The second winter hiking trail leads from the mountain restaurant Brambrüesch downwards to the middle station of the Brambrüesch gondola. This hike takes about 1.75 hours and is mostly parallel to the toboggan run. You can also walk in the opposite direction (upwards from the middle station). 


Snow shoeing

The plateau around the Dreibündenstein between Brambruesch and Feldis is a true paradise for snowshoe enthusiasts. And the panoramic Dreibündenstein tour Brambruesch to Feldis is newly signposted all the way as the snowshoe route.

GR 1: Brambrüesch - Dreibündenstein - Feldis

The adventure begins in Chur, from where the Brambrüesch cable car covers a 1000-meter altitude climb in around 15 minutes. The route leads first to Spundis and on to the Furggabüel valley station of the chairlift, with which the highest point of your trip is soon reached. Impressive all-round panoramic views are enjoyed on the plateau around the Dreibündenstein before you then gently plod on down to the Emser ski lodge. From there, you follow the winter hiking trail to the top Mutta chairlift station for a leisurely ride down the valley. From the Feldis mountain village gondola rail runs to Rhäzuns. To return to Chur you can either take the Rhaetian Railway or the Chur bus. All fares are included with the attractive round trip ticket.
