Muglin da Ftan – Alpine mill

For centuries, growing crops was the basis for agriculture in the Lower Engadin. The mill is the last evidence of this bygone era, telling as it does of the once rich corn economy. Two mills in their original condition: the millstones are driven by water paddles and wooden shafts connecting them to the powerful cogwheels. Open in summer in the afternoon at weekends.

Thurnheer Coopery

Centuries-old craftsmanship can be seen in the coopery. The cooper Martin Thurnheer demonstrates how an oak wood barrel is made by hand and gives information about Swiss wooden crafts.

The art of sgraffito

Josin Neuhäusler is not only a dyed-in-the-wool Engadine native, but also an inspired sgrafitto artist. On his tours of the village, he shows guests the many outstanding examples of sgraffito on the houses there, explains how this typically Engadine style of house-painting is done and what it means to the region. Last, but not least, amateur artists are given a crash course in the art of sgraffito and can take their own attempts home with them as a souvenir.
