May in St. Moritz

End of this May, my husband and I will be reaching St. Moritz one night (from Tirano on Bernina Express), and will be staying the next day and night before we take the Glacier Express to Zermatt. We are planning to stay in Bad (though we haven't booked anything yet).

Would love to get inputs on what we can do that day...

End of May is still shoulder-season, most of the mountain cable cars will still be closed until mid-June. There however is still enough to do as the public transport in the valley is working.

If you dont mind backtrackingt partly on the Bernina Express as far as Bernina Diavolezza, you could visit Diavolezza, which remains open during the off-season in spring (mind that during this time of year, they will have a lunch break from 12.:00 to 13:00). This is a perfect place to enjoy the mountains and perhaps have a lunch on the sunny terrace with the panoramic view. Coming down, you could go off at Morteratsch (the hotel there will be closed) for a scenic walk into the Morteratsch valley to wards the glacier, an easy and well groomed, mostly even hike.

Already for this, see that your hotel offers the "all inclusive", look for the two icons here …stmoritz.ch/sommer/… this is a very good deal with complimentary public transport in the area.

Other possibilities would of course be an excursion to the romantic Bregaglia valley and to the sunny terrace of Soglio. Restaurants there usually are open End of May, as also a lot of locals go there in Spring. The postal bus to go there would be included in the "inclusive" offere with the 3 icons. If you choose this excursion, you might skip on bus going off at Maloja to look down into the Bregaglia valley before the dramatic descent the pass road makes after this mountain barrier. On your way back, visit Sils, a nice small villages along the way - if you feel fit, have a hike into the Fex Valley. The road leads you along the Upper Engadin lake plateau and the lakes and is very scenic.

Another option would be to visit Zuoz, a nice and well preserved old village, or even further down the valley the village of Guarda (Guarda however is not included in your complimentary pass) or Scuol. This journey by train is along the Inn River which gives the valley its name.

If you are more into hiking, there are numerous hikes also during this time of year, but avoid high altitude, as it may still have snow on the hikes there.
