“Picturesque”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2012

Lej da Staz is on the way (walking) from St. Moritz to Pontresina or Celerina. It is simply a lovely and quiet place. Weather permitting, there is swimming possible.

“Gorgeous and serene”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2012

We took a horse carriage ride near this lake and the views of the meadows, trees, mountains and lake were amazing. There is a restaurant there called Restorant Lej da Staz that has the best home-made vanilla ice cream I have ever had anywhere.

“Nice short hike from St Moriz train station”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2012

We went on a little hike from St Moritz to Lake of Staz to the restaurant. If wou take it easy, it is a 20-30 min easy walk. The mountain view and the lakes you walk by are beautiful. No special equipment is needed. During winter there is snow, otherwise it is an easy short walk and you can enjoy the mountain lake.

“Skating by the lake!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2012 via mobile

I went in the winter time to St Moritz and took nearly 700 photos of the area and surrounding mountains.
The lake itself is the centerpiece of nearly every photo.
Walking around the lake in cold weather is not as bad as it sounds and is nothing short of amazing with clear air, clean walk ways and pleasant people.
If you go during the World Cup ski events, book your hotels early and meet celebrities!!
A must do as well is the ice skating rink next to the lake, and is usually packed with families. Stop in for a hot coffee or food in the snack bar or take it on your walk around the lake!
