The Edelweiss bench in Furtschellas
Corvatsch and Edelweiss Air
The Edelweiss bench at the Furtschellas middle station has fantastic views of Lake Sils and the mountain landscape.
Just a few minutes’ walk up from the Furtschellas middle station, you will find the Edelweiss bench: it looks like a row of aeroplane seats and offers an impressive view of Sils, Maloja and the nearby deep-blue lakes. Are you wondering why Furtschellas has a bench that looks like a row of seats on an Edelweiss Air plane? Edelweiss Air aircraft are christened with the names of places where the Edelweiss flower naturally grows. And the queen of Alpine flowers is very much at home on Corvatsch. Therefore, one of the Airbus A320 aircraft belonging to Edelweiss Air is called “Corvatsch” and takes the mountain to many other beautiful places around the world.
