Romanesque model village


Even from afar, the ruins of Steinsberg Castle catch the eye. It towers over the model village of Romanesque residential culture: sunlight plays around the sgraffito of the beautiful Engadine houses, the diverse agriculture is omnipresent and conjures up a stoic calm.
Ardez owes its intact village appearance, which could not be better integrated into the landscape and creates a sense of security, to the bypass road and careful planning. It doesn't matter whether we are descending from the mountain lakes on Piz Cotschen, coming from Val Tasna past Chanoua to the WWF emerald area or ascending from the Inn Gorge after visiting Sur-En or Tarasp: We do not go to Ardez, but arrive there.
