Samedan

Samedan is in the heart of the Upper Engadine, in the middle of a natural landscape, shown in fresh splendour every day. The aromatic Alpine air and the ideal climate make every moment, every breath even, an unforgettable experience.

The Upper Engadine’s main city is not only a political center but also the cradle of Engadine’s way of life. Samedan is important thanks to its location in the heart of the Upper Engadine: the village is the turning point and pivot of the Rhaetian Railway and the home of the small international airport.

Together with Täsch it belonged to the municipality of Naters until 1552, at which point it became part of the municipality of Visp. The name Randa probably comes from the word "Rand" meaning border. The extended Baroque church, built in 1717, is a real gem.
