Parsenn – for diverse activities

Mountains – Whether a visitor may be a skier, a literature fan, a mountaineer or a scientist, the Parsenn Mountain Train, opened in 1931, will be of great help to explore the wonderful Weissfluh-Joch.

The Parsennbahn railway ascends the Weissfluhjoch in two sections in pretty much the same way as an express train. And it’s no time at all until the Davos landscapes lie at your feet and views extend from Piz Kesch to Bernina and 60-ks south.

Muottas Muragl – a front row seat

Mountains – Box seats with a spectacular view are available on the Muottas Muragl, a mere 10-minute ride by funicular from the lower parts of the Engadine Valley. Painters and poets admired this scenic beauty early on.

With his keen eye for beautiful landscapes, and unique light conditions, Segantini discovered this special patch of the earth. And sunsets from here are truly remarkable.

Dent d'Hérens 4171 m

Mountains – Way up high, in fact no longer in the drainage basin for the valley, is the Dent d'Hérens, from a mountaineer's point of view in the shadow of the Matterhorn, just a few kilometres away. The usual starting point for the difficult route that most people take to the top on the Italian border is the Rifugio Aosta on the southern side of the ridge. The first ascent of the Dent d'Hérens was on 12 August 1863.
