Good to Know Here at the border with Italian-speaking Switzerland, locals and visitors cherish the relaxed atmosphere, the spirit of great painters and traditionally made sausages. As starting point of the Engadin Ski Marathon, Maloja is also a paradise for cross-country skiers. But the fact that Maloja is one of few resorts to have been officially awarded the Swiss Families welcome label is no accident.
