An ascent from Sils to Furtschellas, a short hike in the direction of the Fex valley to the lookout point. Here it stands, the seat of Edelweiss, from where you have a breathtaking view of the Upper Engadine lake landscape. Perhaps the famous Maloja snake will wind its way past.

About 5 minutes from the Furtschellas middle station and can only be reached on foot.

Starting point: Sils Furtschellasbahn - bottom station, take the cable car up to the top station and then walk about 5 minutes in the direction of Fextal.
