Our beloved squirrels have company! "Arosa Bärenland" opened in August 2018. Five bears are given a new home half way up the Weisshorn mountain, next to Mittelstation.
Mistreated Bears - used as an attraction at fun fairs, paraded and kept in chains - will move into the first bear conservation centre in Switzerland. On three hectares fo land a sanctuary is created for the brown bears, providing them with space to scamper around, bathe, retreat to various feeding sites and also rest over the winter months.
For visitors there are numerous attractions - an informative viewing platform, a minigolf cours and a kid's playground.
