This small lake is situated in the forest between St Moritz and Pontresina. Although accessible from both places we approached it from the end of the Lake of St. Moritz near the train station. A slightly upward, push-chair friendly path leads through the trees to this enchanting alpine lake. This was the first such lake in which I had a... More

This is just a lake you pass on the walk between Pontresina and St Moritz. Easily accessible from both, but nothing extraordinary, the walk's the thing. The walk is easy and pleasant.

The lake is rather small but beautiful it is too small for water sports but the view is grand. The two alternative routes to the lake to and from the main s moritz lake lead you through a magnificent forest up and down a mountain slope in one case and quite a flat walking path in the other Just few...

This Lake is such a beauty, particularly when frozen in the winter! However what is amazing is the surrounding town of St. Moritz, with the beautiful statues and fountains! Worth a return visit definitely!

Summer, Autumn, Winter or Spring. It is a really beautifully place. The lake is one of the smallest in this region, but easy to achieve per feet. A shuttle bus is offered too. The lake is warm in the summer time for swimming, and the location offers boxes for changing the clothes. A kiosk is close to the lake, a... More

The lake is far from train station and it was very quiet and beautiful. We walked on the path around the lake.

We took off a day from skiing to visit the town and took a walk around Lake of Staz after lunch. This is a nice walk and faves a break from the many days of skiing. Very scenic and you can get some good pictures. Probably even better during the summer when the boars are on the lake. Stop at... More

We were advised to walk from the town, round the lake. It takes 20-30 mins and is well worth it. There is a hotel and restaurant at the end too. The walk is moderate, quite flat and through forest. The architecture on the main lake section is lovely.
