Intro

Impressive views as seen from the Piz Palü – above Bellavista and on to Piz Bernina. Simply stand and stare or get involved – six kilometres before the Bernina Pass, the cable car makes its way up on the right to this glacier vantage point almost 3,000 metres high.

An ideal spot to lay back and absorb fantastic views courtesy of Mother Nature and a deckchair – or perhaps a bubbling hotel pool. Guests at the Berghaus can spend the night in double or multi-bed rooms.

Others may choose to climb to the Munt Pers, along a narrow but perfect path leading to an extraordinary grill and picnic spot on the Sass Queder, ascend the walkway to the Piz Trovat or even climb the Piz Palü in the company of a mountain guide. A classic glacier hike leads from the Diavolezza over the Pers Glacier to Isla Persa, then over the Morteratsch Glacier and on up to the Morteratsch station. We recommend you make this tour in the company of a mountain guide.

Legend has it that hunters once casually followed the red-headed mountain nymph only to disappear for ever – and it’s from this little devil that the mountain supposedly made itself a name!
