Amsteg is a great place to stay to get another, quieter perspective on the Gotthard region.

Amsteg is a great place to stay to get another, quieter perspective on the Gotthard region. This unique hotel dating from 1788 has just been sensitively and stylishly restored to its former splendour, making it and its venerable speciality restaurant well worth a visit. Elegant rooms, a restaurant with fine cuisine and dedicated conference facilities make this an ideal base for guests seeking peace and relaxation while soaking up the atmosphere of days gone by.

Creative market-fresh cuisine served in the hotel restaurant. The hotel is managed cooperatively and in 2012 was elected one of the 15 best 3-star boutique hotels in Switzerland.

Tarasp Castle - Presiding Over The Lower Engadine

Scattered hamlets, in the midst of them 100-meter high rocks, a small lake, and above this the most imposing castle in Graubünden - this is Tarasp. Here the human endeavor to rule and the mighty nature of the Unter Engadine converge.

The "Poyas" Trail

"Poya" is the local word for the route taken by the cows to the alpine pastures in summer. The tour takes nearly 4 hours and is 15 km long. The starting point is the railway station in Estavannens. From there, the route goes via Grandvillard to Lessoc. The church in Lessoc has an ancient carved wooden ceiling and noteworthy frescoes. In the centre of the village is a fountain with a well-known legend attached to it.

In the Intyamon valley, the “poya” is the annual ascent of farmers and cattle to the high pastures – a scene depicted in naïve paintings on wood that hang over the cowshed doors of many farms.
