Lüen hydroelectric power station is located
at the bottom of the narrow valley of the Plessur
river, between Chur and Arosa. The power station
is completely hidden in the bottom of a very deep
gorge. No road to access to the power station.
By car, from Chur, take the road to Arosa, at
Castiel take the road which goes down to the Lüen
hamlet, then a very steep path which goes to the
Rätische Bahn Chur-Arosa railway line….
And you arrive at the top of the funicular which
goes down to the power station. By train, take
the Chur Arosa train, leave it at Castiel-Lüen
(don't forget to press the 'on-demand stop' button!),
then take the small road which goes up to the
Lüen hamlet and then the steep path to top
of the funicular.
The funicular is private and used to transport
the power station employees. Otherwise you can
use another steep footpath which leads you the
power station thru the forest and the deer.
The Arosa Energie Ag company organizes special
visit of the power station, from Arosa, by train
and funicular, but it is only for groups during
summer time on the Thursday's.
