How to travel to the Weissfluhgipfel

You'll reach the Weissfluhgipfel by taking the funicular from the town of Davos.

The route

Weissfluhgipfel can be reached by funicular from Davos Dorf. Davos Dorf can be reached by train via Chur, Landquart, the Albula Valley or the Lower Engadine. From the Davos Dorf train station, follow the signs to the Parsennbahn (funicular) station, about a 5 minute walk. Then, the trip is completed in 3 sections. That is an attraction in itself!

Section 1: Davos Dorf to Höhenweg

You first travel by funicular from Davos Dorf (1,560 m) to the mid-station Höhenweg (2,218 m) in 5 minutes.

Section 2: Höhenweg to Weissfluhjoch

You'll switch to another funicular to the Weissfluhjoch (2,665 m) where you'll arrive 5 minutes later. "Joch" means that this is a saddle between mountains. It's not the top ("Gipfel") yet.

Section 3: Weissfluhjoch to Weissfluhgipfel

A cable car is then available to take you another 200 meters higher to the Weissfluhgipfel at 2,843 meters.

Dates of operation

The cable cars and funiculars do not operate from 15 October to 22 November 2018 (except for November weekends). Also they don't operate from 23 April until late June 2019. Please check again later for further dates.

Tip: check the timetable before you start your trip.

Parking

There are parking lots at walking distance from the funicular valley station in Davos Dorf.
