Wreathed by imposing snow peaks, along the pearl chain of the clear Upper Engadine lakes, you will reach St. Moritz, where the rich and beautiful meet. However, the route follows the beauties of the landscape: nutcrackers in the Stazer forest, the cold river Inn rushing next to us, the clear and fresh air. And there are Engadine feasts in every village.
After the Samedan transport hub, we reach La Punt-Chamues-ch with its magnificent patrician houses. On the edge of the vast plain lie villages, mighty houses tell stories of harsh winters. We drive up and down the edge of the national park, which was founded in 1914 as the first nature park in Central Europe. The grandiose nature of the Engadin presents itself as calm as the flap of an eagle's wings.
From Zernez, the valley narrows, the Inn wilder. After a hearty climb you reach the picture-book village of Guarda and the diverse terraced landscape in the Lower Engadine. In Scuol you can smell the mineral springs by the iron taste of the well water, the thermal bath relieves the tired muscles. Small enchanted villages on the sun terraces of the Trockental bear witness to early settlement. According to Martina, the Inn rages in a gorge before it is allowed to escape into Tyrol at the eerie Finstermünz castle bridge.
