Attraction details
Owner description: Brambruesch in summertime: The cable car whisks you from the centre of Chur directly up to the high plateau of Brambruesch, where you are greeted by glorious Alpine summer meadows, beautiful flora and awesome panoramic views. In summer, you can enjoy wonderful hikes, cosy restaurants and thrilling bikeboard downhill runs, as well as the Alpine Bike Park with its downhill trails for mountain bikers. Also ideal for group excursions! Brambruesch in wintertime: From the city centre directly to a winter sports area - in Switzerland, that is only possible in Chur. With the aerial cableway, ski lift and chairlift you reach 2'200m above sea level and 20km of natural snow pistes and cosy mountain restaurants, complete with sun terraces, for bon vivants. In addition, there is a 6 km-long toboggan run, a winter hiking circuit trail and perfect terrain for snowshoe trekking. Equipment and courses available at the AIS Sports School.

“Surprising Place.”
Reviewed 6 March 2014

The base station for the Gondola is just a short walk from the centre of Chur, and the lift is a two stage affair, up to a terrace on the Mountainside. When we visited, the temperature in Chur was considerably higher than up at the top station. and there was a very good covering of snow. So, be warned! Ensure you know what the conditions are up top before going up in tee shirt and shorts. We were adequately dressed and thought it cool enough. We were surprised to see a Dotto train waiting to take people along the terrace, and chalets and restaurants dotted around. however, we walked the prepared piste along to the skiing area, where there are further lfts for the skiers and ski schools for the children. There is a large car park so we then understood there is a back road that brings you up another way. In short, you don't have to come up the gondolas to get there, but you do get Panoramic views of Chur and the Valley, and, if like us, you are on train tour, then the gondolas are perhaps the only option...we enjoyed it and even spotted a deer on the way down.
