Muottas Muragl Hike along the High Trail
The view from the restaurant and viewing terrace above is unforgettable!
Break in the mountain café
The Muottas Muragl hike along the Hohenweg (also known as Panorama Way) is one of the most popular hikes in the Engadine. It is relatively flat and suitable for almost everyone. From start to finish, after a hilly walk, this is a nice, leisurely hike!
We start with the 2.2 km Muottas Muragl funicular from Punt Muragl (1742 m) in the valley over a winding path to Muottas Muragl (2456 m), a difference in altitude of 714 m. This mountain railroad was the first to be built in the canton of Graubunden. It was opened on August 9, 1907 after a little more than two years of construction.
The view from the restaurant and the panoramic terrace at the top is unforgettable! Many of the postcard photos you see are taken from here. No wonder, with such breathtaking views of the alpine landscape of the Upper Engadine, the famous Engadine "lake landscape" and the ice-covered peaks of the Bernina Group.
From Muottas Muragl we go on a generally downhill or flat path around the side of Val Muragl (with views of the rock glacier) and then back to the main valley of Pontresina, from which each new bend in the path seems to offer an even better view than the last!
After about 1 1/2 hours, we arrive at Unterer Schafberg for a short break at the mountain café to enjoy refreshments and the incredible view over the neighboring valleys. (This small café is also famous for its rhubarb pie).
From Unterer Schafberg we continue for another 45 to 55 minutes to Alp Languard and now enjoy the view of Piz Bernina (4049 m) and the famous Bianco ridge, Piz Palu (3905 m) and the Bernina group before we have lunch at the Alp Language.
After lunch we have two options: (1) Hike back to St. Mortiz through the Stazerwald. This takes about 2 hours. (2) We can walk the road back to Punt Muragl, which is at the end of the funicular. This is about one hour.
Then we take public transportation back to St. Moritz and the hotel.
The direction of this hike can be reversed, a decision made by the guide according to the conditions on the day or after consultation with the guests.
