Intro

The old Graubünden mountain village of Savognin is a lovely area in which to walk during the summer. The winter sports arena with its especially wide pistes attracts skiers, carvers and snowboarders, but also offers non-Alpine skiers a wealth of diversity.

Savognin lies in the high sweeping Surses valley (Oberhalbstein), between Tiefencastel and the Julierpass and Septimerpass. The impressive landscape with its craggy mountain chains, steep gorges and hilly mountain meadows already caught the eye of the renowned painter Giovanni Segantini, who resided in the Surses valley from 1886 until 1894. The mild climate of the Surses with its prominent southern influence is characterised by dryness and an abundance of sunny days.

The village of Savognin with its medieval bridge and three steeples remains accessible throughout the year thanks to the permanently open Julierpass. The nearby resort of Bivio situated on the Julierstrasse is also closely associated with the destination of Savognin.

The rather tranquil resort of Savognin boasts a particularly wide range of holiday apartments and bears the «Families welcome» quality mark. Eight children’s playgrounds reflect the efforts that have been made to accommodate the needs of children.

Winter

Savognin, a small resort with a large ski area: in winter, the 80 kilometres of especially wide pistes are a paradise for skiers and carvers, but they also lure many snowboarders. And kids will be well looked after too in the «Pinocchio Club» with its practice slopes right in the centre of the village.

32 kilometres of skiing trails await cross-country skiers, while winter hikers will benefit from 45 kilometres of signposted walking trails. Tobogganing enthusiasts will delight in the numerous toboggan runs which extend up to nine kilometres in length. Snow-shoe trekkers have a choice of six routes. After an intensive day on the slopes, the sulphur spring in the nearby thermal baths of Alvaneu offer welcome relaxation in warm water.

Summer

Savognin lies at the heart of Parc Ela, Switzerland's largest nature park. Visitors can discover over 1,000 km of hiking trails, rugged mountain chains, steep ravines and undulating mountain meadows – on foot or by bike. Children will enjoy the Pinocchio Club and the Alp Flix Treasure Chest Trail. Lai Barnagn is an inviting lake for swimming or relaxing; more daring visitors can try the via ferrata on Piz Mitgel. A paradise for everyone seeking peace and quiet, for sports lovers and families.

Family

Fascinating experiences for visitors of all ages: pan for real gold, discover animal tracks, watch wildlife, become a circus artiste, take part in the regatta on the Wildbach, extinguish fires or play on an Alpine meadow. The Pinocchio Club also offers fantastic attractions for children aged 4 or more: bathing lake, Pinocchio Express, barbecue facilities, many events for families.

Crime thriller
Help! There’s been a murder in Savognin. The perpetrator must be apprehended as soon as possible. Grown-ups and kids set out in pursuit of him in the guise of inspectors of the cantonal police of Graubünden, using a smartphone as an aid.

As soon as the murderer has been caught, the family petitions the public prosecutor to take him into custody.
Taking part in the crime thriller is free and you can piece together the evidence using QR codes on the notice boards.
