Our beloved squirrels will soon have company! "Arosa Bärenland" will be opening in summer 2018. Five bears will be 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 will be a viewing platform, a bear path and other themed attractions.
