Travelling to Muottas Muragl
All the information you need to get here without stress or hassle.
The Engadin is located within a triangle formed by Zurich, Milan and Munich, and it’s easy to reach by Rhaetian Railway or on the well-maintained road network.
Our hotel is situated near St. Moritz between Samedan and Pontresina, high above the valley at 2,456 m above sea level. From Punt Muragl it’s a comfortable 10-minute ride by funicular railway to reach us. The Rhaetian Railway and the Engadin Bus (which operates a regular service) stop right next to the valley station, where there is free parking for your car. During the season the funicular operates daily, every 30 minutes, from 7.45 am to 11 pm.
Hotel guests are entitled to unlimited uphill and downhill travel on board the Muottas Muragl funicular railway. Your railway ticket will be waiting for you at the valley station.
So whether you choose to arrive by car or by train, the journey to reach us is already exciting. And once you arrive in the Engadin, the travel experience continues. Our vintage funicular railway dating from 1907 initially travels through a dense forest of Swiss pine. Once you rise above the tree line, your views of the Engadin become more and more impressive with every metre, with wow! effect guaranteed!

Arriving by train
Arriving by Rhaetian Railway (RhB) through breathtaking landscapes, impressive helical tunnels and across vertigo-inducing viaducts is an experience in itself. The train journeys to the Engadin via Chur–Thusis–Albula Tunnel or, from Italy, via Tirano–Poschiavo–Bernina Pass are among the most picturesque and interesting from a railway engineering point of view anywhere in Europe, so it is no wonder they enjoy UNESCO World Heritage status. Another option for travelling to the Engadin by rail is from Landquart via Klosters–Vereina Tunnel.
From Zurich’s main railway station it takes a good three hours to travel to Punt Muragl or 4 hours and 45 minutes from Milano Centrale. All these connections are available from the online timetable of the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB).
