The valley has plenty of sunny days, and it has mineral springs and a very pleasant climate. Piz Bernina is the only four-thousander in the eastern Alps (4,049 m. altitude). Piz Palü, Piz Corvatsch, Corviglia and Diavolezza are among its other well-known peaks and skiing areas.

Engadin St. Moritz has a fascinating cultural heritage - Romansch as its official main language, German spoken in St. Moritz, Italian in the neighboring valleys, French at the Club Med, lots of English for example at the Cresta Run, cricket and polo. Giovanni Segantini and the Giacomettis, Friedrich Nietzsche, Richard Wagner, Hermann Hesse, Thomas Mann, Arturo Toscanini, Richard Strauss, Herbert von Karajan and many other famous personalities from the worlds of the arts and culture have contributed to the myth und nimbus of this valley. 'Schlittedas', 'Chalandamarz', an own architectural style (the 'Engadine house'), and the famous Engadine nut tart are also a part of it all.

The region's 13 towns work well together, complement one another, and jointly support regional offers - for example the extensive network of hiking and cross-country skiing trails, the Engadin cross-country skiing, inline skating and windsurfing marathons, etc. Further attractions complete the offer - horse racing and polo competitions on the Lake of St. Moritz, the Cresta Run and Olympic Bob Run (1928 and 1948), the music festival Snow & Symphony, the Gourmet Festival and OpernFestival, St. Moritz' Olympic skiing jump and the Ski World Cup and World Championships downhill runs (1934, 1948, 1974, 2003) and famous rail excursions such as Glacier Express and Bernina Express. In summer this is enhanced by yet more leisure opportunities such as mountain biking, hiking, golfing, tennis, sailing, and Switzerland's only National Park - all reachable within minutes!

Summer

Here in the Upper Engadin, you just need to reach out your hand – the sky seems close enough to touch, the lake plateau glitters in the afternoon light, the Swiss stone-pine forests give off a delicate scent of fresh resin, and in the picturesque villages the Engadin houses, with their distinctly decorated façades, stretch up towards the sun as if they cannot get enough of it. Up here, it is so beautiful that it is almost unreal.

So it goes without saying that all you want to do here is get out and enjoy the nature – on foot through wild valleys, on in-line skates along the River Inn, on horseback across the wide open plains, or by mountain bike along adventurous trails. Bikers and hikers also encounter each other on the mountain rail- and cableways. Summer in the Engadin offers outstanding quality for every budget, even in scintillating St. Moritz, which is once again excelling itself as host to top-calibre cultural and sporting events.

Engadin St. Moritz is like music for the eyes. And the pleasure already begins on the journey there on board the Rhaetian Railway, which oozes so much nostalgia and charm that it has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You can hardly get enough of gazing at this spectacular landscape, with its magnificent Alpine panorama, its clear blue lakes and its magical light, which in the past has inspired a host of poets and painters. And indeed, still continues to do so.
