    Hike to the highest barbecue area in Europe
    Even loners are rarely alone on hikes on the Diavolezza, because the impressive Bernina massif usually peeps over their shoulders as a silent companion, stands by their side or is emblazoned in all its glory. This wonderful panorama also attracts on the simple summit hike to the Sass Queder (3,066 m) and the panoramic view from this three-thousand meter even extends over to the Valtellina and Val Bernina at the foot of the northern flank. The marked hiking trail leads in summer and winter from the Diavolezza mountain station over approx. 1.5 km and only around 90 meters in altitude to the summit - in other words: a great family excursion! Our tip: Celebrate a happy afternoon barbecue at the highest fireplace in Europe on Sass Queder. You can get firewood at the kiosk at the mountain station, and the Berghaus Diavolezza will even provide you with a completely filled picnic basket.
    The descent is the same way.

    very beautiful view, not as much excitement as on the Diavolezza.

    Summit and viewpoint about 15-20 minutes from the top station Diavolezza. There is also a barbecue that can be used.
