Hike to the highest barbecue site in Europe

Diavolezza is the best vantage point for viewing one of the most beautiful panoramas in the Alps. It offers stunning views of the Pers and Morteratsch Glaciers, Piz Palü, Piz Bellavista and Piz Bernina - the last of which is, at 4,049m (13,284ft), the highest mountain in the Eastern Alps. After a short ascent taking about half an hour, you reach Sass Queder; here, thanks to the uninterrupted view to the south, you can see not only the impressive Bernina Massif, but also the Bernina Pass and even as far as the Vatellina valley. It is hardly surprising that Europe's highest Barbecue site is located here and invites families and other hikers to take a break. Snacks and firewood can be purchased from the kiosk at the Diavolezza top station.

The descent follows the same path.

Tip of the author
Allow yourself enough time for a barbecue, because the air is thin at 3066 m.a.s.l. even for the fire.
