Author's recommendation

Pictures and photos last longer than picked flowers. So it is best to leave the flowers wher they grow and can be admired.

Turn-by-turn directions

From Stels you follow the signposts to Stelserberg and further to Stelsersee. A little detour to the small lake is worth it: this lake is the highest location in Switzerland where you can admire the beautifully tender white waterlilies. Around the lake there are big amounts  of different rare flowers to be admired. Across the back of the 'Chrüz' it is first an easy walk getting steeper towards the peak. The panorama is outstanding, especially the view into 'Rätikon' with all the rocks for climbing. A bit further back you can see the glacier of 'Silvretta' and the meadows of 'Parsenn'  which are full of skiers in winter. The descent leads over the back of the 'Chlei Chrüz' then into the side and descends down to the alp 'Valpun'. The path across lush meadows and forest takes you across to the hamlet 'Aschüel' and from there over a road to St. Antönien.

Public transport:

By train RhB to Schiers (timetable-entry 910). From there by post-office van up to Stels (timetable-entry 90.212)

Getting there:

Access road A 13 to Landquart and B 28 to Schiers. From there a narrow steep road goes up to Stels.

Parking:

It is best to leave your car in Schiers and take the post-bus up to Stels. Coming from Landquart (B 28)  there are free of charge car parks on the left by the first exit in Schiers. From there it takes you only a few minutes to get to the station.The car parks at the station are liable to pay cost. If you rather drive up to Stels you can inquire about the parking conditions at the Mountain Inn 'Mottis'.

Der Weg ist begehbar, es kann jedoch in Schattenlagen schon noch Schnee liegen. Gutes Schuhwerk muss sein.
