“Breathtaking beauty!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013 via mobile

I visted when it was snowing and it looked simply magical, a true winter wonderland. Early in the morning the valley looks awesome with the early morning mist spread across the valley with the picturesque mountains surrounding. It really is the most beautiful place I had ever seen.

“On the Edge of Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

Mere words cannot describe the breathtaking beauty of the winter landscape. The frozen mountain lakes, soaring mountain peaks, draped in snow. Deep powder - I do not think skiing can be better anywhere else, spectacular! The slopes wide and excellent for skiing on all levels. It is VERY expensive but this one one of those places you have to see at least once in your life. Stay in an apartment, cook your own meals and your bank account might survive. All the people connect to the skiing scene are very friendly and helpful. Lots do do and see. Walk in the woods, feed birds or just sit and enjoy the wonder of nature.

“A very nice place to be!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

It is really a nice region, nice landscapes and nature. Lots of things to do and see. The only problems are that due to the presence of many rich people the area is becoming increasling snob and expensive.

“Beautiful, very touristy and overrated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Quite nice valley and mountains but much of it is a tourist trap for the rich. I found the facilities and general service levels quite poor considering what everything costs and the fame of the area, and was left with the impression that much of the name and fame of the place is because it's a jet set winter sports area. There are places that are just as beautiful, cheaper and more genuine in Switzerland.

Take the train from St. Moritz to Tirano in Italy, it's a beautiful ride. Then eat in Italy... better food, better service, better atmosphere and cheaper.

“A wonderful area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Until we decided to visit St Moritz I had never heard of the Engadine! Turns out to be one of the most interesting parts of Switzerland. We were surprised to discover that a well known travel guide does not seem to favour this region as much as others eg. Jungfrau area but we loved it. We travelled by train from Zurich via Chur and had spectacular scenery a lot of the way. We then did another portion of the area travelling from St Moritz to Tirano and back....What a day. You are almost jaded at the end seeing so much incredible scenery!
There are lots of hiking opportunities for toughened hikers and also for families. We were there in late summer but it must be even more wonderful in the winter snow.
