Follow in the footsteps of the famous artist, Giovanni Segantini, to one of the most beautiful vantage points in the Upper Engadin

The spectacular journey up Muottas Muragl already hints at the panorama that awaits at the top. «As I paint Nature, will I be able to give her the illumination that lends life to the paint?» It was in search of this light that Segantini climbed up to the Schafberg and to the mountain hut there. This well-marked, but in places steep, route will take surefooted hikers from the Muottas Muragl mountain station (2,456m/8,057ft) up to the place where Giovanni Segantini died. From the Segantini hut (2,731m/8,960ft), there is a breathtaking view of the incomparable Engadin lake plateau and the Bernina Massif. After a snack to replenish your energy, you will be able tackle the steep descent down to Alp Languard, from where the chairlift will whisk you back down to Pontresina in no time at all.
