Really beautiful views, a must for nature lovers. If you are on budget, get the regular compartment [Tirano-St.Moritz] . It runs exactly the same route, but with normal windows on train. If you love white snow, then plan for the winter. The lake next to the station of St.Moritz is too good for a stroll. For the shutter bugs, you... More

If you visit the St. Moritz I recommend taking the train from Chur. Most airlines and train station offer transport of your luggage directly to your hotel for a minimal fee. Check out Fly Rail Baggage or SBB: Luggage Switzerland. Opened in 1904 the Albula line was added to the list of World Heritage Sites in 2008. The journey is... More

The journey to St Moritz by train is itself a great experience of Switzerland's amazing landscape and scenery. We pass through the high Engadin plateau, entering the Albula Tunnel at 1,815 m ,the train has to go through many spirals and tunnels because of the high difference of altitude within a short distance. Beautiful scenery all around ,everything looks pristine... More

This is one of the least spoilt mountain areas of Switzerland where it is still possible to hike without the hordes. Paths are well maintained and signposted. Lifts help you get into the mountains to enjoy your walks. Heaven!

Spectacular and breathtaking views! I felt like I was going to hear Julie Andrews singing the "Sound of Music" theme song as I was riding my bike around St. Moritz and riding the buses and trains all through the Engadine Valley. A must see in Switzerland!

Think Sound of Music set and you will be there. Did a day hike taking the train from St. Moritz to Celerina and hiking back again through the Engadine pass. Easy 3 hr hike rewarded with excellent mountain views, waterfalls, flowing rivers, and ample wildlife. Wow!

My wife and I visited St Moritz on a day trip on the Glacier Express from Chur in May 2014 It was deserted and a wasted day. Found only two places open to eat. Fortunately we managed to get seating at a lovely restaurant in a hotel at the head of the lake & had a small meal with a... More

Beautiful late season snow - 3000 metres does the trick for end of season skiing. Wonderful having snow in the village, not just on the piste.

The place is like winter paradise! One of the most beutifull and snowfull places of the Alps! But if you just like skiing you can find much much better ski centers in Austria with less money.

We have visited at all seasons, except Spring, and have always found this valley beautiful whether walking its paths or riding along it on a bus or in a train. The autumn colours were magnificent in October 2012 and the snowy landscape experienced in January 2012 and February 2014 was entrancing.
