It's only a short wald from Flims but worth every step you walk. The view is simply amazing and breathtaking. Take your time to admire the landscape.

The platform is well maintained, you will feel safe on it. The path going there is pretty easy. If you want to have more swiss experience, you should rent the horse taxi.

The walk through the forest to get to the viewing platform and the beautiful restaurant in the midst of the trees was special. The view from the platform itself was breathtaking.

If you are in this area of the Swiss Alps, Graubuenden, a short hike to this lookout is a must. Easy walk, 30-40 minutes each way.
