Arosa is a political municipality and a holiday and recreation resort in the Plessur region of the Swiss canton of Graubünden . The highest settlement in Schanfigg is a well-known former climatic health resort and has been part of the expanded Arosa Lenzerheide ski area with 225 kilometers of slopes since the beginning of 2014 .
Political municipality of Arosa
Since the merger that came into force on January 1, 2013, the political municipality of Arosa comprises the area of the former municipalities of Arosa, Calfreisen , Castiel , Langwies , Lüen , Molinis , Peist and the former merged municipality of St. Peter-Pagig . The municipal area covers 15,479 ha with a boundary length of 79.46 km. The highest point is the Aroser Rothorn at , the lowest point is at below the Calfreisertobel viaduct in the Plessur . The consolidated population at the end of 2014 was 3,247. At the end of 2018, the population was still 3,131. This makes Arosa the smallest member of the Swiss Association of Cities in terms of population .
Legislative is a 14-member municipal parliament. At its constituent meeting on January 24, 2013, the plenum appointed Ludwig Waidacher junior as the first President of Parliament for a period of one year. His deputy was Peister Andrea Hagmann, who in turn took over the presidency in 2014. In 2015 Markus Guler (Arosa) held the office, since the beginning of 2016 Martin Michael (St. Peter). The public parliamentary sessions are held alternately in all former municipalities. The president of the five-person, departmental municipal board is Lorenzo Schmid from Arosa , while Peter Bircher from Lüen is the vice-president. The headquarters of the municipal administration is Arosa, there is a branch in St. Peter .
coat of arms
The municipal coat of arms was designed by Paul Ganz , an art historian at the University of Basel and Friedrich Pieth , a history teacher at the Cantonal School in Chur . After detailed examination by other experts, it was adopted by a municipal council resolution of December 12, 1934 and at the municipal vote of February 22, 1935 with 218 votes to 81. The sun is considered a heraldic symbol. The Zweiberg indicates the altitude of the mountain community, the mining between the 14th and 15th centuries and the resort with summer and winter seasons. The sky is blue; the combination of blue and yellow indicates that it previously belonged to the ten-court federation.
The idea that the stylized, double-pointed mountain is the Erzhorn , one of the mountains that surround the Arosa basin , is quite widespread - but officially incorrect .
Arosa is 15 km (as the crow flies) south-east of Chur at the end of the Schanfigger Valley. The approximately 3 km wide, at to preferred trough of Talschlusses is surrounded on all sides by mountains. The municipality includes the catchment area of the upper reaches of the Plessur with the exception of the Welschtobel , which flows in from the south, and is therefore in the shape of a horseshoe. In the west, the municipal boundary runs from the Aroser Weisshorn ( ) to the south via Carmenna , Plattenhorn , Hörnli and Tschirpen to the Parpaner Weisshorn ( ) and then over the Parpaner Rothorn ( ) to the Aroser Rothorn ( ). It then leads on the northeast ridge of the Rothorn to the Erzhorn ( ) and Älpliseehorn ( ), so that the headwaters of the Plessur with the Aroser Alp , Älplisee ( ) and Schwellisee ( ) are semicircular. After crossing the Welschtobelbach at , the border rises to the ridge of the Leidflue ( ), encompasses several remote valley chambers and reaches over the striking Sandhubel ( ) at the Valbellahorn ( ) above the Alteinsee ( ) southeasternmost point of the territory. The following section - the border against the Davos landscape - is divided into several mountain groups by the Alteiner , Bärentaler and Maienfelder Furgga pass crossings ; the highest mountains are the Amselflue ( ), the Furggahorn ( ) and the advanced Schiesshorn ( ).
The village of Arosa stretches for around 2 km, with the current settlement focus on the Unter and Obersee ( ). The lowest house is in Rütland at , the highest at Ifang at . The reservoir is located below the village area. A third landscape defining element adjacent to the lakes and the rim of the mountains is the approximately extending timber line : Western Village prevail pastures and extensive scree before, downhill, where the Plessur to Talenge of Litzirüti length of 4 km by 300 m eintieft , dominates the closed coniferous forest.
In 1997, 42.0% of the municipal area was used for agriculture, the forest took up 15.2%, the settlements 3.1%. 39.7% were considered unproductive.
The annual mean temperature is 3.6 ° C, with the coldest monthly mean temperatures of −3.6 ° C in February and the warmest mean monthly temperatures of 11.9 ° C in July. On average, around 183 frost days and 77 ice days are to be expected here. There are summer days on an annual mean of 0.1, i.e. statistically every 10 years. No hot days were recorded in the normal period 1981–2010. The MeteoSwiss weather station is located at an altitude of

The first known settlements existed in the 13th century. After 1300 , German-speaking Walser people from Davos settled in Arosa (mentioned as Araus in 1330 ) and over time displaced the original Rhaeto-Romanic settlers who, however, only used the high-lying area as alpine pastures . In the following centuries, the Arosa population lived from alpine cattle farming. Due to sometimes difficult climatic conditions and the associated economic hardship of the local farmers, extensive alpine pastures were sold to foreign landowners over time: the Sattelalp to the community of Chur, the Furggaalp to the community of Maienfeld , the Alp Altein Tiefenberg to communities in the central Albula valley . In 1481 the largely sterile Welschtobel , which has been part of the municipality of Alvaneu since then , was sold.
Arosa remained a remote farming village well into the 19th century. There was no road through the narrow Plessur valley to Chur. The most important connection to the outside world were the arduous pass routes to Davos, to which Arosa belonged as a neighborhood politically until 1851 . From 1851, Arosa was now an independent municipality and part of the newly formed district of Schanfigg . In 1850 the population had dropped to 52 inhabitants. Around 1870, the first so-called summer visitors from the region and Switzerland spent their summer vacation in private accommodation in Arosa. The upswing began in 1883 when Arosa was discovered as a climatic health resort by the German doctor Otto Herwig , who was cured of a lung disease in Davos . Already in 1888 he opened the first sanatorium together with his sister .
With the extension of Schanfiggerstrasse in 1890 from Langwies to Arosa, another significant upswing began, and a whole series of sanatoriums, health centers and hotels were added within a short time. In 1893, the Grand Hotel (today Robinson Club ) was the first upscale accommodation for winter sports guests. In 1897 the Arosa power station went into operation. From 1900 the importance of winter sports increased steadily; From then on, the Schanfiggerstrasse was used as a bobsleigh run between Arosa and Litzirüti , and the first horse races took place on the frozen Obersee . Between 1907 and 1909 the Catholic , English and Arosa village churches were built . In 1911 the Maran farm was incorporated into the Arosa municipality. In the same year, the Tomelischanze, the first permanent ski jump, was set up.
The opening of the Chur – Arosa Railway in 1914 made it possible for Arosa to develop into a real world health resort , despite the difficult environment in the middle of the First World War . This was accompanied by a far-reaching redesign and redesign of the old Walser settlement , which largely lost its original character and the traditional Walser language . In 1938, the Carmenna , Weisshorn and Tschuggen lifts were the first to go into operation. In 1945, the Hörnlilift followed , at that time the longest ski lift in Switzerland. At the same time - supported by the discovery and increasing prescription of penicillin for lung diseases - Arosa's transformation from a health resort to a holiday and sports resort was accelerated. Various clinics, such as the forest sanatorium , ceased operations or were converted into hotels.
The year 1956 saw the opening of the Weisshornbahn , 1960 that of the Hörnlibahn . More ski lifts, chairlifts and gondola lifts soon followed . A connecting cable car to the Lenzerheide ski area was built in 2013, which means a significant expansion of the winter sports offer that is now being marketed together with that of Lenzerheide.
Arosa has long been one of the best-known tourist destinations in Switzerland, and the locals now live almost exclusively from tourism . With around 4,500 guest beds in hotels and a further 8,000 in holiday apartments, almost one million overnight stays are achieved every year. "Arosa Tourism", under the direction of Pascal Jenny, endeavors to achieve a balanced relationship between summer and winter overnight stays. Since 2003, guests have been able to use the Arosa mountain railways free of charge in summer. This then unique concept won the Milestone and has been copied by other destinations since then. Among other things, a multimedia water feature ("water organ") on the Obersee has been providing entertainment for summer guests since 2003.
The Arosa Humor Festival has been held every year since 1991 , at which well-known artists from home and abroad perform and receive awards. Rebecca Carrington , Gerhard Polt and Malediva were among the winners .
The WSF World Spirit Forum has been held in Arosa every January since 2004 . On the international platform for thought leaders and spiritual leaders, people from the fields of politics, business, science, religion, culture and society work on the global issues of our time.
The year 2005 saw the premiere of the Arosa Gay Skiweek , one of the largest homosexual winter sports events in Europe.
Another attraction can be found on a hiking trail along Arosa's “local mountain”, the Tschuggen : As a result of many years of (forbidden) nut feeding by tourists, almost tame squirrels live there , and they may climb a hiker's trouser leg or jump on their shoulders.
Arosa is also the starting point of the Schanfigger Höhenweg and stage of the "Mittelbünden Panoramaweg" from Lenzerheide to Davos.
Thanks to prepared winter hiking trails through the ski area, skiers and non-skiers can meet in the area.

From 1932 to 1936, Arosa had its own airfield on the Obersee in winter .
It is hoped that the St. Luzibrücke at the entrance to the Schanfigg will shorten the time on the road , which would bypass the city of Chur. However, a contribution from the federal government is not expected before 2014, since it currently considers the cost-benefit ratio to be insufficient. Along with Langwies, Arosa would be a possible starting point for a currently visionary railway connection between Schanfigg and the Davos landscape .
For decades, Arosa has hosted national and international sporting events, initially particularly in bobsleigh , skiing , horse riding and ice sports . From 1951 to 1965 Arosa was part of the Swiss jumpers' tour . In 1978 the Ski World Cup finals were held here, followed by other corresponding ski races in the following decade. In 2002 the Swiss Alpine Ski Championships took place in Arosa , and in 2007 the Snowboard World Championships . In 2008 , 2011 (finals) and 2013 the Snowboard World Cup , in 2014, 2015 and 2016 the Ski Cross World Cup took place here.
Every year in September, a car race for classic racing cars takes place on Schanfiggerstrasse between the Säge Langwies and the Obersee - the Arosa ClassicCar - and inspires thousands of spectators. Between 1897 and 1935, the Arosa bobsleigh run was located on the Schwarzsee - Litzirüti section of the road .
In 2011, the unofficial snow soccer world championship was held for the first time under the name Arosa IceSnowFootball . From 2012 to 2015 the site was the venue for the international ice hockey tournament Arosa Challenge . The Swiss Irontrail , which was held for the first time in July 2012 , has been leading from Urdenfürggli - Hörnlihütte via Carmenna - Weisshorn to Arosa and from there via Medergen - Sapün - Strelapass to Davos . The last competitions of the Orienteering World Cup 2015 took place in Arosa from October 2nd to 4th, 2015 .
The Arosa Ski Club, founded in 1903, is one of the oldest, largest and most successful snow sports clubs in Switzerland. Arosa is also home to the EHC Arosa , founded in 1924 , a nine-time Swiss champion who currently plays in the third-highest league . Its home is the Arosa Sports and Congress Center (SKZA) . The football club FC Arosa, founded in 1990, plays in the 5th division . The Arosa floorball club also plays in the 5th division of its sport. Since 1995 he has been holding the 7eck Cup every year at the Ochsenbühl sports complex, the world's largest open-air floorball tournament with 168 participating teams and 1,500 players.
