Mountain peaks rise over 10,000 ft. in St. Moritz and there innumerable lakes spread throughout the valley. All these natural features are highly accessible to outdoor enthusiasts. This creates an exhaustive list of activities (http://www.engadin.stmoritz.ch change summer/winter season above) that will keep the most avid individual happy.

Hiking is not limited by ability or interest. There is a clean energy hike that explores the renewable energy sources in the mountains. Expect to encounter wind mills and solar panels.

Intermediate to advanced hikers can try to conquer the 8167 ft.  altitude hike at Punt Muragl. Several airy trails even exists for children. On is an easy walk that passes Heidi's Hut (from the Heidi film). It is a loop trail that begins and ends in St. Moritz. Another one leads into the Val Bever, the last addition from Muragl towards Samedan. In June, enjoy the Flower Trail above St. Moritz on the sunny hillside and learn about the alpine flora.


Golfers may retreat from the fast pace of hiking for the stillness of the greens. Engandine is home to two of the highest golf courses in Europe and has highly acclaimed challenges. A very scenic course is in Lower Engandine near Tarasp Castle.

Any other type of sport a visitor could possibly have in mind exists in St. Moritz. Sailing, skiing, tennis, biking, windsurfing, and rock climbing are but a few extras. No matter what type of physical endurance training you prefer, recuperate with a world class massage or other therapy.

Having been a spa-center for it's healing waters in Summer for centuries, St. Moritz boasts itself to be the place where "winter tourism and winter sports are born", resulting from a bet St. Moritz hotelier Badrutt made in 1864 with his English guests. He offered them - if they would travel to the Engadin in winter - to pay them the journey back to England if they would not enjoy it, otherwise they could stay as long as they wanted - they came and stayed the whole winter over and winter tourism was born.
