Diavolezza: a stone’s throw from the glacier
Nothing is quite as invigorating as a sunny jacuzzi on the sun-terrace of the Diavolezza Mountain Lodge. And this with a breathtaking mountain backdrop which has now been brought even nearer thanks to the new panoramic platform: No fewer than 8 peaks near the 4000-meter-mark tower over the scenery of the Bernina Massif. The Diavolezza provides eye-candy for nature lovers, and a jungle gym for climbers and alpinists. Whether on a glacier trek down to Morteratsch, or in the airy exposure of the via ferrata (fixed rope climbing route) on Piz Trovat, or while relaxing in Europe's highest jacuzzi, it is devilishly nice up here. Tip: regain your strength with local specialities from the Diavolezza Mountain Lodge.
Guests may obtain a postcard-style snapshot of the summits from the photo point at the lower Diavolezza terminal. A special feature, and indeed an eye-catcher, is the embedded ibex, an animal typical of the region. The Diavolezza hashtag station enables you to print out and send your picture as a postcard at Berghaus Diavolezza. This is how the hashtag station works
Embark on a journey into the eventful history of the Diavolezza with Flurin, our fictional mountaineer, as part of the audio app produced by Bernina Glaciers. Join Flurin as he takes listeners interested in history on a journey into the Diavolezza’s past. With his guests in tow he journeys back to the 19th century, to a time when the first attempts were made to climb Piz Palü and Piz Bernina. He also has stories to tell of exciting glacier races, of the founding years of the first cable car in 1956, and the building of the Firn chair lift.
The highest virtual reality experience in the world! Curving down fresh snow slopes, daringly jumping over metre-high jumps or conquering the east ridge of the Piz Palü with crampons and ice axe. That is pure adventure and not for the faint-hearted. But you can also experience all of this.
At the reception in the Berghaus Diavolezza you can borrow a pair of VR glasses free of charge, make yourself comfortable in a swivel chair and experience 6.5 minutes of pure action and new perspectives.
Glacier Experience Trail
To be up close and personal with the glacier - this is something that not only mountaineers, but also families and mountain lovers can do on the Diavolezza at almost 3,000 metres above sea level. Here, from August 2021, there will be a new trail of about one and a half to two hours via a mountain hiking trail.
