Hint

Intro

True to its name, the Panorama Trail provides wonderful vistas throughout the route. The trail that runs virtually parallel with it connects Gotschnagrat with the Strela Pass.

Description

The Parsenn Panorama Trail from Gotschnagrat to the Strela Pass follows a virtually horizontal course at an average altitude of almost 2,300 metres and is rightly regarded as one of the most worthwhile and easiest mountain hiking trails. Even families with children won’t find it technically demanding as the path is wide for the most part. Far down below you can see Lake Davos and the mountain town of Davos.

The first section of the trail takes you past small Gotschnaseeli lake to the Parsenn Hut, where the chair lifts ascend in all directions in winter. It continues through a barren area to the Meierhof valley and winds its way around rocks before reaching the old Parsenn funicular station. If you want to take the chairlift down to Davos, you should descend to “Höhenweg” station below, as the station in the upper section is no longer served.

The Panorama Trail continues without any substantial rises in elevation around the Schiahorn to the Strela Pass and its restaurant.

It then descends 485 metres to Schatzalp, which is where Thomas Mann got his inspiration for the book “The Magic Mountain”. Tired hikers can take the funicular railway in comfort back down to Davos Platz.

An enjoyable tour includes the careful planning of the same. Please inform yourself in advance at the local information center about the route and weather conditions. Depending on the season and weather conditions, this route may be blocked or interrupted
