How can I get there?

The train is an excellent option. The train station of Sils is located 300m far from the main access to the protected natural area. Furthermore, the Information Center of the lake is found in the same train station building..

Another possibility is using a private vehicle. Sils has a very good connection by road because it’s located next to the AP7 motorway and the N-II road.
