In brief:

  • Where is the Pradaschier toboggan run?

The longest toboggan run in Switzerland is located in Churwalden, between Chur and Lenzerheide.

  • How do I get there?

From Chur take the post bus in the direction of Lenzerheide and get off at the stop "Churwalden, Bergbahnen". If you want to come by car, you can park it right next to the bus stop in the large car park of the mountain railways. To the right of the station of the mountain railways is the station "Erlebnisberg Pradaschier", from where you can take a chair lift to the alp Pradaschier.

  • How long will the trip to the toboggan run take?

Depending on how often you want to toboggan, you should allow a little more time. You can spend 2 hours or even half a day in Pradaschier. From December to April and May to October you can enjoy spectacular views and a delicious meal or a warm drink at the Restaurant Portal at the Churwalden Bergbahn station. 

The roller coaster in the mountains

Would you like to ride a roller coaster and enjoy an impressive Alpine panorama at the same time? The toboggan run in Pradaschier is like the Europa Park and the mountains of Graubünden all in one. In the ski area of Churwalden/Lenzerheide, about 15 minutes away from Chur, you can toboggan in summer and also in winter, when the weather is good. Enjoy the run in pairs or alone, but you are sure to feel the adrenaline.
