Do & See:


Hiking and (E-)mountain-biking are highly popular in the Biosfera area. Below hikes are red/white routes, doable in half a day:

  • Senda Val Müstair: Going from 2149m from the Ofenpass down to the valley of Lü on 1916m.
  • A la riva dal Rom: Hiking along the beautiful river Rom. You can get on the path from many villages like Fuldera or Valchva if the full hike is too long.
  • Cascada da Pisch: This path brings you up to the wonderful waterfall which creates its own luscious vegetation around.


  • The Convent of St. John Müstair is listed as UNESCO world heritage and has a little museum.
  • Close to the Italian border you can relax and pamper yourself with beauty treatments at La Vita or massages at Sorgente Blu. Both offer a great view into the valley.
  • Woodworking is an important discipline in the Val Müstair. The Swiss pine is used for total interiors – even inside cushions due to its health-supporting traits. Visit a carpentry to find out more about the craft behind. Frars Honegger offer weekly tours in their workshop with shop.
