Turn-by-turn directions

  • From Silvaplana, walk in the direction of Surlej.
  • After the Surlej bridge, take the first junction on the right and walk past the Crap da Sass castle in the direction of the waterfall.
  • Before the waterfall, a forest path leads up along the waterfall to the Corvatsch valley station.
  • From there, follow the signpost in the direction of the Murtèl middle station.
  • Alternatively, you can also take the Corvatsch cable car to the middle station.
  • From the Murtèl middle station, the trail leads in the direction of Fuorcla Surlej and Hahnensee.
  • Shortly before Fuorcla Surlej, the trail branches off to the left to Hahnensee.
  • The descent to Hahnensee, which leads over loose scree, requires surefootedness and good footwear.
