Starting point of the winter hike is the bus stop "Monbiel Parkplatz". Accessible from Klosters Platz. If you prefer a more leisurely pace, take a nostalgic carriage ride through the magnificent winter landscape to Monbiel, the highest settlement in the Prättigau, which is inhabited all year round.
From the bus stop, follow the marked winter hiking trail in a slight ascent to Alp Pardenn and on to Alp Garfiun. Shortly before reaching the alpine hut, the path climbs a little more. Arrived at the top of Alp Garfiun, the cosy hut invites you to enjoy fine alpine dishes and a fantastic mountain panorama.
From Alp Garfiun the trail descends to Landquart and then returns a little along the same path to the fork at Baretschrüti, where you turn left. You now cross the Landquart over a bridge. Following the river you pass Schwäderloch, where you now follow the road to Aeuja and the winter hiking trail. Shortly before Klosters you cross Landquart again and then walk through the village centre to Klosters Platz station.
Enjoy a hot drink on the beautiful terrace of Alp Garfiun and enjoy the beautiful view.
