Arosa is a railway station on the Chur-Arosa line (the "Arosabahn") of the Rhaetian Railway (RhB). It is situated in the town and resort of Arosa, close by to the Obersee (one of the lakes in the vicinity).

Contents

The station is the upper terminus of the line and has a number of passenger facilities including a ticket office, shop and cafe.

A 299m long tunnel takes the line under part of Arosa as it ascends to the station. There is a large yard of freight/rolling stock sidings just beyond the station at the very end of the line, as well as a 2-road locomotive shed (essentially for shunters) at the lower end.

Weisshorn cable car

The base station of the cable car up the Aroser Weisshorn is situated very near to the station. Cable cars arrive/depart every 20 minutes during daytime for much of the year.

Services

Hourly passenger services operate on this line (service "R4" on the Rhaetian network) to the city of Chur (where connections with other RhB routes, Postauto buses and SBB trains towards Zurich HB can be made at Chur station), calling at a number of places between. The route is shown as timetable 930 in the Swiss national timetables.
