S-charl

S-charl in the Lower Engadine is probably one of the most remote places in Switzerland. The sleepy, summer village at the rear of the Val S-charl near Scuol on the border of the National Park can only be reached in winter by horse-drawn sleigh – a very special experience.
S-charl (1810 m) is a political faction of Scuol, about 13 km from it. The original village centre is a group of 13 houses and 2 inns arranged around a church. The village is traffic-free and has a car park immediately before it. The road into the Val S-charl is narrow and winding but the village does have a postbus service in summer. Along the way, the enormous, canyon-like scree gorge that follows the boundary of the National Park is truly impressive. S-charl was inhabited throughout the year until 1920. In winter the access road is closed and the village can only be reached by horse-drawn sleigh, on touring skis or snowshoes.

The Schmelzra Museum is just a few minutes walk from the village and shows how ore was mined by hand on Mot Madlain for centuries to extract silver and lead. Remains of the walls of the former mining works with information panels, are found opposite the museum, which also has a special exhibition: «On the trail of the bear».

A splendid hiking route leads into the Val Sesvenna to the alp of the same name and on to the Fuorcla Sesvenna, the pass to the Sesvenna hut in Valle di Slingia. Other hiking routes lead through the idyllic Val S-charl towards Tamangur, the highest-altitude Swiss stone-pine forest in Europe, and on over the Pass da Costainas into Val Müstair. Or via Fuorcla Funtana da S-charl to the Ofenpass. Not to be forgotten is the climb up the scenic Mot Madlain. In winter S-charl is a popular starting point for ski and snowshoe tours.

Highlights

  • Horse-drawn sleigh rides through the Val S-chal – a very special experience, when the road to S-charl is closed in winter.
  • Swiss National Park – encompasses an exceptionally impressive area of Alpine landscape, rich in fauna and flora. Here, animals and plants are left to develop as nature intended.
  • Schmelzra – the museum shows how ore was mined by hand on Mot Madlain from 1189 (with interruptions) to extract silver and lead.
