The Engadin mountains are among the most beautiful destinations in Switzerland. Indeed, the mountains here are higher, the flora and fauna more diverse, the sun brighter and more frequent and the mountain sports available almost limitless. It's the 'wow!' effect and the locals are able to enjoy their entire lives, making them proud inhabitants of this region. It's also the happiness they feel whenever tourists rave about the mountains here. And it's the unique history, one that includes the birth of winter tourism here in St. Moritz. There's so much to experience here, winter and summer. Muottas Muragl for instance boasts the most beautiful views of the Engadin lake plateau and the Corviglia is arguably the world's best known skiing mountain.
Experience mountain challenges
In winter, Corviglia ranks among the world's most renowned ski areas; in summer, it's one of the most up-and-coming mountain bike regions around; in fact, right now it's still something of an insider's tip. Snow and meadows, hiking boots versus ski boots – the Corviglia is the sports mountain bar none. And it's precisely here that, more than 150 years ago, the very first skiers ventured down its slopes.
The place of relaxation
Inspiration, art, and enjoyment: Muottas Muragl is the counterpart to the lively and very sporty Corviglia – it's the creative streak and a place of rest and relaxation, ideal for enjoying a spot of idleness. Anyone looking for a workout either before or after experiencing the culinary excellence of the Romantik Hotel will not be disappointed. Indeed, Muottas Muragl is ideal for hiking in summer and snowshoe trekking in winter. And there's plenty of thrills for action fans, too, with the fastest toboggan run in the Engadin. In fact, this earthly spot is simply magical.
People who are inclined to be sporty will be thrilled by the Olympic Bob Run St. Moritz–Celerina and the Cresta Run, two legendary bobsleigh and skeleton institutions. Top events on the frozen Lake St. Moritz such as the White Turf horse races and the Snow Polo World Cup are just as legendary. They have long become the extravagant social highlights in St. Moritz's remarkable calendar of events that so far counted five Alpine World Ski Championships.
From the lush alpine meadows shimmering with flowers to the idyllic mountain lakes and the bewitching glaciers of the Bernina massif, the sun-blessed Engadin is a delight to discover in summer and winter. The views of the Alpine peaks all around and of the chain of lakes along the valley floor are unforgettably breathtaking.
Let it flow: that's the motto when it comes to this fashionable summer sports.
