This winter panorama trail leads from Sta. Maria (1,342 m above sea level) to Müstair (1,247 m above sea level). After a first slight incline, the path goes almost flat always on the sunny side of the valley along the edge of the forest and slightly downhill towards the end. It is a leisurely hike that can also be done well with children. 

Author’s recommendation

Before setting off, you can visit the Manufactura Tessanda hand-weaving workshop in Sta. Maria, and the UNESCO World Heritage monastery of St. Johann awaits you in Müstair.

Schwache Leistung! Ein Stern ist noch zu viel. Der Wanderweg ist bei schönstem Wetter nicht geräumt! Wir sind extra 1 Stunde ins Val Müstair gefahren, nur um festzustellen, dass es gar keinen Winterwanderweg gibt. Nach ca. 500m ist der Weg zu Ende. Entweder die Karte ändern oder den Weg räumen. Wir kommen so schnell nicht wieder.
