Maloja: Engadin St. Moritz

Maloja lies at the western end of Lake Sils and connects two fascinating landscapes: the Upper Engadine Lake District and the Graubünden’s southern valley of Bergell. Here one appreciates above all the uncomplicated atmosphere, the spirit of famous painters and traditionally made sausages.

The emblem of Maloja stands above the village: the 19th century Belvedere Tower, from which one can enjoy a spectacular view of the entire village.

The village at the border of Italian-speaking Switzerland does everything to uphold its reputation as a family-friendly vacation destination. But not just families are at ease in this natural environment. The fascinating play of light and shadow has always attracted artists. Giovanni Segantini selected Maloja as his last home and subject for many landscape paintings. Also Giovanni Giacometti – the father of Alberto Giacometti – worked here. Their spirit is still an inspiration for exhibitions, readings and concerts.


Enjoying the shoreline of Lake Sils on foot, on skates or by bike is a popular pastime in the Upper Engadine. But Maloja is also the starting point for inspiring and border-crossing hiking paths like the idyllic Via Bregaglia, the challenging Via Alpina and the romantic Via Engiadina. Passionate bike riders undertake a 530-kilometer long tour along the river Inn to Passau.

Lake Sils has international renown amongst sailors and surfers thanks to the steady Maloja breeze. In the Adventure Park visitors find challenging adventures. Lake Cavloccio (1,907 meters above sea level) entices you to bathe.
