Müstair

Müstair lies at the farthest corner of Eastern Switzerland. Its mild climate, unspoilt nature, cultural landscapes, 1,300-year-old monastery and numerous possible activities, make Müstair a very attractive holiday resort.
Müstair (1,247 m), on the border to Italy, bears the same name as the valley in which it is situated. Thanks to its southerly location, Val Müstair enjoys a particularly mild and sunny climate and the valley presents unspoilt nature together with most attractive cultural landscapes. With approx. 800 inhabitants, who chiefly speak Rhaeto-Romance, Müstair is the largest village in the valley. A number of hotels, restaurants and a large camping place are found along the length of the village street, and a PostBus route over the Ofenpass connects Müstaire with Zernez in Engadine.

Landmark in Müstair is the ancient monastery of St. John that stems back to the eighth century. The church is the world’s best preserved testimony of religious medieval architecture, with the largest preserved fresco cycle stemming from the eighth and twelfth centuries. The monastery, inhabited by Benedictines since centuries, was awarded the status of UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983 and, today, individuals or married couples in search of peace and tranquillity are accommodated in the monastery guesthouse. Fasting weeks and meditation are offered under professional guidance. The museum, church and monastery shop are open to visitors.

Those in seek of more active recuperation discover an extraordinary variety of activities in the region, all conveniently connected and easily reached thanks to the famous PostBus.

Summer

Almost a hundred kilometres of signposted hiking paths lead nature lovers through the impressive mountain landscapes. All tastes are catered for, from leisurely valley walks to more strenuous mountain tours on the surrounding two to three- thousand-meter-high peaks. The hikes lead through cool, shady woods, over meadows and passes adorned with stunning alpine flora, and alongside crystal-clear streams. The 2,763 meter-high Piz Chavalatsch peak, marks Switzerland’s most eastern point. Bikers too enjoy a variety of tours, from an easy family outing to a challenging mountain tour. Great attraction for the sportive in the region is the Val Mora. The natural hanging valley is shaped by extensive pinewood forest, stony mountain flanks and cool meandering stream. The Münstertal valley, which borders with Switzerland’s National Park, is yet another hiker’s paradise with natural landscapes and rich variety of alpine flora.

Winter

With a total 25 kilometres of prepared langlauf tracks (skating and classic), the langlauf offer in the valley is one of Switzerland’s best, which figures amongst the top ten. The track extends from the Minschuns terrain over the stunning panorama track in Lü, on through the gentle snowy path flanked by snow-tipped pinewood forest between Tschiery and Fuldera. Minschuns, which is not far from the Ofenpass, is considered snow-sure in winter and the skiing region comprises 3 ski lifts (up to an altitude of 2,700 m), panorama restaurant and a grand variety of ski-slopes, ranging from family-friendly to the more challenging slopes for ambitious skiers and snowboarders. Winter hiking paths, snowshoe and skiing tours, plus the Lü –Tschierv sledge path and natural ice-rink in Mustaire round up the offer.

Highlights

  • UNESCO World Heritage Site: St. John monastery.
  • Val Mora: Natural valley, hiker’s and biker’s paradise and your connection to the Swiss National Park and Piz Chavalatsch (2,763 m), at Switzerland’s most eastern point.
  • Langlauf: The popular Val Müstair region has good reason to belong to the top-ten list of Switzerland’s best langlauf destinations.
