The Flüela Wisshorn is a mountain of the Silvretta Alps, overlooking the Flüela Pass in the Swiss canton of Graubünden.

Access roads[edit]

The climbing route starts from the road which leads to the Fluela pass (2383 m). You can get there by following an attractive road from Davos in the north-west or from Susch in the east.

The normal route to the summit[edit]

You can start walking directly from the pass or from the parking at 2207 m above the sea level below the pass in the direction of Davos. This is a simple walk in the north-east direction towards the Winterlucke pass which is at 2787 m. From there the summit is clearly visible, just follow the rocky ridge.
