The perfect newcomer trail!
From Pontresina, the short distance leads in the direction of Unterer Schafberg, which lies below the Segantini Hut.

There you will experience a breathtaking view of the mountains and lakes from St. Moritz to Maloja. Along the Piz Languard you now pass the Alp Languard in the direction of the Paradis hut. On the downhill to the finish in Pontresina you can then give everything again.
