Muottas Muragl

Muottas Muragl is an old funicular train just outside of Pontresina that offers some of the most incredible views of the region. From the outdoor terrace at the Muragl restaurant, you can look down on St. Moritz and the impressive Upper Engadine lakes, and gaze across the entire glacier-covered Bernina group for truly breathtaking views. Hikers might want to make the trek to Segantini hut above Pontresina on a clear day, or take the mellow, wooded path down to Pontresina on a cloudy day, a trip that takes about 2 hours. The best known excursion from Pontresina is probably the cable car to Diavolezza… it’s pretty, and closer to the mountains, but I definitely like the overall views from Muottas Muragl better.
