Whether you explore the Engadine landscape by bike, on foot, or on horseback, you’ll have a wonderful experience. There are so many outdoor activities here that are not to be missed.
The Engadine has recently become a magnet for art lovers. St. Moritz hosts several galleries showing artwork of various styles. Our tip: visit the St. Moritz Design Gallery with its impressive escalators and fantastic lake view. The biggest art event is the “St. Moritz Art Masters” exhibition that attracts international artists and their work to the Engadine every year.
Not everyone knows that many of the Engadine lakes reach a pleasant temperature in summer and are great for bathing. Try taking a dip in the fresh waters of these inviting lakes such as Lej da Staz, Lej Nair or Lej Marsch. To round off the experience, families and friends can enjoy a picnic on the lake shore after swimming.
Alternatively, take a horse-drawn carriage ride and view the magnificent Engadine outdoors in comfort and style. Especially romantic are the trips to the Engadine valleys Val Roseg and Val Fex.
Many popular events take place in the Engadine during the warmer times of year. At the “British Classic Car Meeting” and at the “Passione Engadina”, elegant classic and vintage cars as well as new sports models find their way to the Engadin and inspire car enthusiasts of all ages. If you prefer equine events, you should pay a visit to the “Concours Hippique” horse show or the CSI show jumping event in St. Moritz. Other attractions that should not be missed are the St. Moritz Tavolata food festival and the Laret Market in Pontresina, which presents a wide array of Engadine specialities including food delicacies, local crafts, live music and other entertainments.
If you want to see more than just the Engadine, you can cross the border into Italy and visit the historic town of Chiavenna. Further nearby attractions in northern Italy include the duty-free shopping zone of Livigno, the prestigious and beautiful Lake Como with its fantastic Riviera atmosphere, or the Alpine town of Davos; the highest town in Europe.
